Its coming soon, no matter how much we'd like to have seen the BrawnGP BGP002 it wont come, so this should be the thread for the new Merc car...

The 2010 Mercedes GP car will be launched on January 25, according to a report in Germany's Sport Bild weekly.

It emerged shortly after Christmas that the unveiling event would take place late this month in Stuttgart, probably at the Mercedes-Benz museum in Unterturkheim.

In its latest edition on Wednesday, the magazine also revealed that the car will be called the 'Mercedes-Petronas RB1', with the 'RB' standing for team boss Ross Brawn.

Lets just hope the real livery isn't as horrid as the one in the link.

Can't see the name sticking. It would be like Mercedes calling the C-Class a 318/320/330 etc

Are they using a box of Corn Flakes as their web server?

Thing is god awful slow here. Images are not loading, and not timing out.

Correct, its just a livery launch.

Can someone edit the thread title to: MGP W01 rather than RB1.

Dunno. I did offer to sponsor the Brawn GP website when they just had that holding page up there, but they weren't interested. Having hosted the Williams F1 car launch a number of years ago and maxing out the 100Mbit network the image server was hosted on for six hours straight, it's clear the journo's can place a pretty high load on the web hosting.
