Mercedes focusing on the MP4-21
Thu 12 Jan, 10:13 AM

McLaren has moved to explain why rev-limited V10s, not Mercedes' 2006 V8 engines, were fitted to the orange winter cars at Jerez on Wednesday.

As the interim MP4-20B pulled out of the Spanish garage in the morning, a whisper rattled up pitlane that - faced with poor reliability in the November/December period - the German engine maker had decided to pull the V8 and hurriedly redesign it for the start of 2006.

Not exactly so, a team statement contended.

"Engine production is focused on the V8 for the MP4-21," McLaren clarified, "which has different mountings from the one used in the MP4-20B."

Because of this, however, McLaren will only resume on-track V8 testing with the debut of the new 2006 machine some time later this month.
