It is not if they will go to a new engine, it is when they will go. Mercedes just signed the Concorde agreement which commit them to be in F1 for serveral year. I suspect the whole Eccleston does not like what he hears is a tactic to delay the engine role out as Ferrari is not up to speed with their engine compare to Renault and Mercedes. Like it or not, you can't have an engine development freeze for so long. As for Mercedes being competitive, they have a new enforce to that will look over Ross shoulder for results, that enforcer is a certain Mr. Lauda.
