As we get ready for the second European round on the calendar this weekend, let’s take a look at what power unit components each driver has used so far in the opening five rounds of the 2018 Formula One season.
Scuderia Ferrari Finnish driver Kimi Raikkonen has avoided an engine change for Formula 1’s Monaco Grand Prix after the problem that caused him to retire in Spain last weekend. Kimi failed to finish the Spanish GP after suffering a loss of power on lap 26. The Finn was initially instructed to stop the car, but he was able to nurse it back to the pits. It is understood a wiring problem cut the power to the left-hand cylinders on Raikkonen’s Ferrari V6. The Maranello team replaced Raikkonen’s internal combustion engine, turbocharger and MGU-H after a problem in Friday practice in Spain.
However, those components should have lasted until the end of the Monaco race before being replaced for the seventh round in Canada, where Ferrari plans to introduce its upgraded engine.
