Ferrari to change engine components — Sporting Change

Ferrari to change engine components — Sporting Change

"But it's hard to say until we get there".

If his tone lacked ultimate confidence, it wasn't surprising.

SUZUKA, Japan (Reuters) - Lewis Hamilton and his Mercedes team will be looking for lost speed as Formula One wraps up its Asian leg in Japan this weekend.

LEWIS HAMILTON will look to extend his lead over Sebastian Vettel at the Japanese Grand Prix.

Sebastian Vettel, however, not only managed to finish fourth but also set the fastest lap ever at the circuit. But as is so often the case in F1, things go much deeper than the surface results. By the apex of Turn 1 the Ferrari driver had made up three places and, by straddling the kerb, avoided contact with Carlos Sainz's Toro Rosso.

With mechanics unable to fix Vettel's Ferrari before the end of Q1 the German will start from the back of the grid unless there are penalties for other drivers.

"It was clear after just a few laps that both Red Bull and Ferrari had better cars than us today".

With Vettel at the back of the field, Raikkonen will lead Ferrari's charge after missing out on pole by a mere 0.045 seconds. "That's a fact. It could have also been the same at Singapore". Despite enjoying a recent run of three consecutive victories, Hamilton fears his team could fall behind next season if it cannot solve the faults with its auto.

"On paper the Ferrari is the fastest vehicle, followed by the Red Bull and then us", the Austrian had observed after qualifying. "Then I had Verstappen lap me and then pull right in front, so I had no aero".

"Valtteri seems to struggle more having the auto in that sweet spot than Lewis", Mercedes head of motorsport Toto Wolff said. "And that's very positive".

"We must not forget that we're talking about the auto that leads the constructors' championship and leads the drivers' championship", Wolff said.

It was nearly the stage for motor racing history with Vettel's drive, and had the rain that was predicted turned up sooner than its actual touch-down in the early hours of race day, a yet more protracted and explosive race may have unfolded. My comments and Valtteri's are really important for us.

If it needs to be replaced, he would take a five-place grid drop this weekend in Japan.

"I'm really happy with my performance, and what I got out of the auto".

"We leave Malaysia with a lot of question marks and we need to find answers to them in the next days". "I hope not because it was completely unnecessary". This is engineering at the highest level, just as it is at Ferrari.

Such pessimism within the top two teams highlights the pressures of being involved in a title battle. Alonso again finished ahead of the Mercedes in a session where the Silver Arrows struggled with their auto set up.

In the constructors' championship, Mercedes has taken 68 points from the two races - Ferrari's struggles represented by the 12 points they have taken in the same period.
