Mercedes spends all 7 tokens on Monza upgrade

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)

    Cheeky Merc, did not expect them to use all 7 tokens. That will certainly increase the gap again.

    • Of course not. Its Mercedes being german again: once set in motion, "die deutsche maschine" is very hard to stop (7-1, anyone?) ;) If they can press out another 50HP from their engine, Any non-Mercedes team will have a properly hard time from now on.

    @Calle.itw The engine guys have to have something to do! (You don't think Toto would give them the rest of the season off do you? ;-)
