Lewis Hamilton concerned Mercedes engine setback could ruin victory chances in Canada

Hamilton seeks to extend his lead with a record-equalling seventh triumph at Canadian Grand Prix Hamilton seeks to extend his lead with a record-equalling seventh triumph at Canadian Grand Prix

The Silver Arrows were set to use their second power unit of the season at the seventh race of the 21-race season in Montreal.

Mercedes has postponed the introduction of its new Formula 1 engine, after a last minute quality issue emerged on the eve of the Canadian Grand Prix.

Mercedes engines are used not only by the factory race team, but also by the Force India and Williams teams.

The Twitter faux pas comes days before the 2018 Canadian Grand Prix, held on the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal.

"We can see that we are in a stronger position in both championships than we were 12 months ago, but we know the battle is more fierce with ourselves, Ferrari and Red Bull in contention every weekend".

Toto Wolff hoping Mercedes can outperform Ferrari and Red Bull in Canada. They had originally planned to introduce significant upgrades for this weekend's Canadian Grand Prix. "We are pushing hard to bring more performance to the auto as soon as possible".

Warriors, Cavs stars say they're not going to White House
Trump had written on Twitter, "Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team". But it's good that guys are sticking to what they believe in and what they want to do.

It is where he won his first Grand Prix in 2007 and a circuit he has dominated, winning the last three races and four of the last six.

Mercedes are leading both championships after six races, with Lewis Hamilton 14 points clear of Ferrari (Xetra: 30092157.DE - news) 's Sebastian Vettel.

And the race in Canada will have the same compounds that were used in Monaco - the supersoft, the ultrasoft and the hypersoft tires - when Mercedes struggled to bring it up to the optimum temperature and extract the maximum performance from the tires.

"Naturally, I am still here to win, we're going to give it everything we've got that's for sure".

"There are certain circuits that will suit you more than another place and this has been one of those circuits for me".
