Racing Point to give Sergio Perez older-spec Mercedes F1 engine after a failure

Perez stopped the power unit problem in Q2 in the race at Monta. Currently, Racing Point is performing the investigation of this problem while building a brand new engine for the race. 

A certain change in the recent P3 version would need Perez to begin the journey from the pitlane present at Monza. This is owing to the fact that it would be classified as a modification of the change in the car. As a result, Racing Point has decided to uphold a grid penalty in place of this and committed to provide a brand new Phase 2 version.

Team supremo Otmar Szafnauer mentioned in an interview that they will be fitting a Phase 2. It might start on the 19th. They will take the lead well ahead of Max Verstappen. This is because he has acquired a new powertrain and thereby outpass him.

Perez usually drives an earlier version of Phase 2 here at Monza that first came into existence in Canada. This takes place because New Phase 3 engine moved to Belgium last weekend experienced initial damage.

There is not so much enthusiasm among the runners in regard to the sustainability of the recent Mercedez Engine. As a result, Racing Point’s commitment to a Phase 2 engine clearly implies that he wants to end the season with a newly built engine. It comes with a well-built feature as per Szafnauer. He further mentioned that if they went with Phase 3 it will mark the trade-off between quality and penalty.

As suggested by Autosport if reliability issues influenced the idea to remain attached to Phase 2, then Szafanauer replied that he doesn’t know well enough and as a result asking Mercedes will fetch you good results. This is solely true for Mercedes.
