Reigning world champions Mercedes GP have elected to use all of their remaining engine development tokens for the season ahead of the Italian Grand Prix. Having held their cards close to their chest in regards to engine development since their last major upgrade ahead of the Canadian Grand Prix back in June, Mercedes have now taken the plunge and have used all seven of their remaining development tokens. However, contrary to what we might have expected, the focus of these developments is not solely focused on maximising and extending Mercedes' power advantage for Monza, but is instead aimed at giving the team a head start for the 2016 season. The team claim the changes introduced will form the cornerstone for the development path they wish to take for next season, whilst the changes will also allow their lubricant supplier, Petronas, to test new products on the car. For the time being, only Mercedes themselves will run these new spec engines, however there is a potential that their customer teams will also have the chance to test them in the closing races of the season. Out of the other engine suppliers Honda have four tokens remaining, Renault 12 and Ferrari 10. Action from Monza will kick off at 9am local time, so stick with Race Department throughout the weekend for more breaking news.
