In Brazil, Hamilton won, last Sunday he also triumphed in Qatar and currently his loss to the Dutch world championship leader Max Verstappen is only eight points.
Fitting a newer engine with more power will allow Hamilton to achieve higher speeds on the long straights, which on the Jeddah circuit could have a major impact on the results.
– We are careful before each race, but of course you cannot strain the drive unit too much, because it may cause a failure. You also need to manage your tires well. We will be working on it now, there are only two races left by the end of the season and there are 52 points to score, said Wolff.
Hamilton lost the championship lead on October 10 after the Turkish Grand Prix. Verstappen later won in the US and Mexico and was 19 points ahead of the defending rival.
Now the Briton’s loss is only 8 points and the case of the title is still open. Wolff recently admitted that he never stopped believing in Hamilton who was fighting for the eighth title.
