Mercedes could move yet another step ahead of its closest challenger Ferrari this weekend at Monza. Maurizio Arrivabene is playing down Ferrari's chances of mounting a winning challenge at the high-speed Autodromo, and it appears he has good reason.
Mercedes has confirmed that it is introducing a scheduled new specification of its 'power unit' this weekend, featuring all seven remaining in-season development 'tokens'. Ferrari also has a new-spec engine for Monza, but it has been upgraded to the tune of only 3 tokens. "I'm sure Monza will suit our car," said Mercedes' Nico Rosberg. (GMM)
