Mercedes warn Lewis Hamilton could face another grid penalty in engine blow

Six races remain in the current campaign, with Verstappen leading the drivers’ championship by just half-a-dozen points over Hamilton.

Having gone through three power units in 15 race weekends prior to Turkey – one every five rounds – there is a real possibility the Briton may need a fifth between now and Abu Dhabi in December.

That said, the 36-year-old said after the race in Istanbul that he may still be able to use one of the older engines to avoid another penalty if necessary.

“It’s not my job to worry about that stuff, so I let the guys focus on that, worry about it,” he said.

“My engine is in good condition. My first engine, I think, did six races. We still have engine two, and I think engine three is still there.

“As far as I’m aware, hopefully I don’t have to (use a fifth engine), but I can’t predict what’s up ahead.”
