No Hamil­ton is­sue

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Mercedes has dis­missed wor­ries about the state of Lewis Hamil­ton’s For­mula 1 engine, de­spite the world cham­pi­onship leader ex­press­ing con­cerns about a vi­bra­tion af­ter win­ning the Ja­panese Grand Prix. Hamil­ton came on the ra­dio fol­low­ing the che­quered flag to say that he had ex­pe­ri­enced a vi­bra­tion with his power unit in the lat­ter stages and had been short shift­ing. On a week­end when ti­tle ri­val Fer­rari suf­fered more engine re­li­a­bil­ity prob­lems, Hamil­ton’s is­sue prompted sug­ges­tions that Mercedes could have hit trou­ble too. But speak­ing af­ter the race, Mercedes mo­tor­sport boss Toto Wolff said the teleme­try in­di­cated there was no prob­lem.
