I do not know deeply the old Ferrari team's structures but for me, it looks like this team (Mercedes) missing a key member, a true boss, a team leader, a charismatic person who kick the engineers and other members ass when there are no results. Someone like Jean Todt...
Okay, this car is still build up by the same bullshit developers like the W02 or W01. Maybe this is the problem, and the W04 will be much closer to the podium, because Costa and Willis with Bell now take full responsibilities. If not, they need a leader.

Fair enough sauber has a VERY good Windtunnel and CFD (read computing power) but what about FI? they use obsolete Mclaren recources ,are they?

Why would a team abandon all other aspects of development in favour of dedicating time and resources to tyre studies? Surely the aero developments need to move in harmony with the understanding of the tyres?
Could it be that whilst Stuttgart is uncertain about its future participation due to not being given a seat at the top table they have frozen the teams R&D funding until they decide if they're in or out?
W03 has not really changed since China.
According to this, Merc have poached an aero-guy from Lotus (Mike Elliot). And he will be replacing Bigois.
I remember this guy being mentioned (here) awhile ago.
