, seven times champion of the , you will have a “more powerful” motor in your unit Mercedes in the competition that will take place the first weekend of December in Saudi Arabia, in the penultimate competition of the annual calendar of the highest automobile division.

The current escort of Max verstappen (Red Bull) in the championship will be able to use the power unit that he had and with which he won in Interlagos, about two weeks ago. The team’s director of track engineering, Andrew Shovlin, said hopes “are high” for Saudi Arabia, as Hamilton will have “more power available.”

“We’ve seen pretty big changes in performance in the last few races, (but) if we look at the track in Arabia, I think we could use it,” he said. “For Lewis we have the most powerful engine in the car, so that will give him a useful engine,” Shovlin added, speaking to Sky Sports.

Hamilton, after winning last Sunday in Qatar, was eight points below the line of Verstappen, who finished second (343.5 points against 351.5). For his part, the team boss of the German team, Toto Wolff, agreed that the competition to be held on Sunday 5 in Jeddah “will be better for the car, due to the situation of the engine.”

“In Arabia it should be a good track for us, but we know that this year, when we think it is good, it can turn around,” he pointed out and argued that “the long straights can give us a plus for the spicy engine.” that “good backing” is needed from Valtteri Bottas. “Hopefully Valtteri can be there (in Saudi Arabia) helping,” he said.
