    Many said that it's the engine that planned for Suzuka..If planned for Suzuka, it might be a new one..Doesn't make sense to put same spec engine in Suzuka

    they are reverting back to older specs of engine components as a precaution, it is going to be very tight but the mechanics are on it.

    Engine number 4 would refer to the 'new spec' engine as engine 1,2 and 3 would be used engines

    Can anyone confirm which engine Kimi is running?

    Not ideal but if it did happen rather it happened in practise then the race.

    Motorsport said it's the new upgraded engine that consider to be use at Suzuka or even at US GP..

    Ferrari have found an issue with Vettel's power-unit and are having to replace the entire assembly (Engine/turbo & MGUK system), and fit an older unit to avoid any penalties.

    They are now in a race against time to get the job done before qualifying.

    If it's an electrical glitch I suspect Ferrari can fix it, they will chance now just to avoid it happening again this weekend. So we introduce Unit 4 earlier but probably use unit 3 again at Suzuka or something.. Only problem is the unit won't be tested on track..

    Just a thought:
    Ferrari were not happy with Merc introducing 4th engine at Monza to be able to still burn more oil.
    Ferrari planned to introduce 4th engine at Suzuka or US, but now they are using it here in Malaysia, which means the engine is ready and at the track and approved. If this engine was ready and they didn't intend any further changes, why didn't Ferrari introduce the 4th engine at Monza, during practice, and simply didn't race it for instance, to also benefit from the oil burning? Perhaps because they got something different?

    I dont think they will risk running the spec 4 engine, they will use an old 1 i think

    Becoz if it rains heavy. It will take time to dry up till quali.
    If it's light rain, then becoz of humidity it will dry up quickly

    That's called max storm.
    Ferrari needs to worry about 3 storms
    1. Thunderstorm
    2. Max storm
    3. Bottas storm

    2nd one is pretty dangerous. As 1 & 3 have some chances of both cars on track.
