F1 » Mercedes admits engine update was ‘risky’

rob01: What if the water leak happened on Lewis's car. He would have had the weak back up.
Rob, Richard's point is why use such a high mileage engine as back up regardless of who got it? That engine had apparently done 6 races prior to Monza surely they had spare (old spec) engines with far less mileage than that one?
Nico didnt question the availability of a better option so I assume it was the best in the pool.

F1 » Mercedes admits engine update was ‘risky’

stuart.tooley: As Mercedes have used so few of their allocation why did they not give Nico another brand new unit?
The second of the only 2 new engines that shipped to the race showed up at lunch time friday. No more available.
that is not the point , rob. merc had a number of less used versions of the previous spec, but chose to use the one at the end of its life.

F1 » Red Bull may not bother with Renault’s ‘Sochi update’

[blockquo te]Taipan: So the Renault partnership is quite dead, Merc wont supply them engines because they don't like the prospect of competition, so what would happen if Ferrari pulled the same move as Merc? no RBR in 2016? I don't think Ferrari will do that and even if they did try it I don't think Bernie would allow them to. So to cut a long story short Ferrari will have to supply RBR with engines whether they want to or not for the good of F1 but Merc got the choice to say no for the good of themselves. Merc is honoring their partnership with Renault. Its politics. Sunny has clarified in other post.
