Wolff: Mercedes has not reached 1000 horsepower yet

Toto Wolff from Mercedes says that the news that the German manufacturer has passed 1000 horsepower is not factual.

Gridin produces the best engine, while Mercedes has won four brands and four pilots championships since 2014 when V6 turbo hybrid engines have been in the spotlight.

Andy Cowell announced that the Mercedes engine last year was the first engine to exceed the 50% thermal efficiency barrier, but stated that they did not pass the 1000 horsepower limit.

On the other hand, Renault had written "more than 950 horsepower" on the engine power part of the information we published last month, but it did not give a clear figure, while Mercedes already had 1000 horsepower and even Ferrari passed this dam.

Wolff said that they did not reach 1000 bikes in the statement they made about the subject.

"Renault, Ferrari or Mercedes, we are not far behind with 1000 horsepower, but I can not say we have passed that figure yet."

Wolff does not seem to be happy with the change of engines that made such big investments.

"The Formula 1 has a very high technology, maybe we can make the engines a bit less complicated, but we have to have quite similar technology today."

The president of Mercedes-Benz Dieter Zetsche, Sebastian Vettel's victory in Australia "It is good for the championship." commented.
