The rumors confirmed.  Painful penalty for Lewis Hamilton

Lewis Hamilton will pay a heavy price for a mistake at the Belgian Grand Prix and his collision with Fernando Alonso. According to previous rumors, Mercedes could not salvage the engine from the British car. That means a penalty at the Italian Grand Prix.

Lewis Hamilton collided with Fernando Alonso on the first lap of the Belgian Grand Prix, and the call made his car fly through the air before crashing down hard on the asphalt. The 37-year-old continued driving for several more corners, despite being told by a Mercedes engineer that the machine must be stopped immediately.

It turned out that there was a malfunction in the water pressure in the Mercedes car, which in turn led to severe damage. Even before the Dutch Grand Prix in the Formula 1 circuit, there were rumors that the drive unit could not be saved and that the seven-time world champion would have to use another machine and be fined.

The short interval between the Belgian Grand Prix and the Dutch Grand Prix meant that the older engine was eventually fitted to the Mercedes Zandvoort driver’s car, while the damaged unit was being analyzed at the Brixworth factory. There was a sentence before the Italian Grand Prix – the machine cannot be fixed and Hamilton must use another engine in the 2022 season.

On Sunday, Hamilton will be at the end of the session. The team decided to replace all possible components in the drive unit, although it was hoped that some parts could be salvaged from a damaged machine in Belgium.

The consolation for the Brackley driver is that the Monza track is famous for its long tracks where engine power is very important. The use of a new unit would put Hamilton’s machine into a much harsher operating mode, which in turn would allow the British to make up for the situation.
