Mercedes admits: 'Then you might as well replace the whole engine'

Lewis Hamilton received a grid penalty in the Turkish Grand Prix, which meant he had to start from eleventh place.

Technical director James Allison explains in a YouTube video of the team.         "With our car, we knew it was going to be a challenge to get to the end of the year with the internal combustion engines Lewis had. So we had to choose a judicious moment to give us a good shot of making it to the end of the season," Allison explained.
