Brit Accuses Authorities Of Designing Rules To Make Mercedes Lose Ahead of the Spanish Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton criticised FIA over their proposed changes, suggesting they were trying to deliberately slow him down. Recent reports covering F1 news suggested that FIA plans on placing restrictions on the engine modes used by teams. The new rules, which are most likely to be enforced from the Belgian Grand Prix at the end of August, will see the elimination of the special modes used by Formula 1’s power units. The special qualifying modes have been in place since 2014 when all manufacturers have featured special settings or modes, which bring about a change in power. The special full power mode is used by teams during qualifying sessions, as it makes extra engine revs available, thereby allowing for maximum deployment of energy during a lap.Also Read: Lewis Hamilton Plans To Build Party Pad In garden Of His £18m mansion, Neighbours ObjectLewis Hamilton speaks out against proposed rule changeDuring a press conference ahead of the Spanish Grand Prix, talking about the proposed rule changes, Lewis Hamilton said that he’s not surprised. The six-time world champion then went onto say that the change has been suggested to slow Mercedes F1 down, as that is something the FIA is always looking to do. However, in his criticism of the decision, Lewis Hamilton was adamant that the change in engine modes during qualifying will not have the desired result on the performance that the FIA seemingly want.While concluding on the issue, Lewis Hamilton said that he would be totally fine even if the change in rules is enforced, as the Mercedes F1 team members have done such a great job with the engine. Lewis Hamilton’s teammate was less critical of the FIA’s decision. Valtteri Bottas said that the Mercedes F1 team aren’t panicking over the issue. The Finnish driver said that if the regulation comes in, it will be the same for everyone and they will take it as it comes.  4 weeks ago Formula 1 revenues drop by whopping 96% in 2020, record $136 million in losses 1 month ago Racing Point penalised, Hamilton fastest in practice ahead of 70th Anniversary GPlast_img
