Really...now that reminds me of one of this season's teams actually?
Yep, that's to be seen yet.
I guess you remeber that before the MS years the other massive company that's leading the WDC board this year had a very long dry spell.
It's to be seen if the love for racing of this massive company is really full restored and if they are up to endure the beating before they figure their way. Because they've bet the farm on an one trick pony and that trick is forbidden now.
Not that it's not possible, look at RBR. Who would guess that Stewart Grand Prix would go this far.
Ah yes, but don't you see, Dr. Z got conned into buying a worldbeater of a team by Norby the Hutt and Ross Brawn.
Perhaps the fine print when Ross became team principal for MGP should have included the need to provide upgrades to the various iterations of the W0x in a timely fashion, as opposed to when it doesn't actually matter any longer.
It's not anywhere near the same as Ferrari's troubles from 1980 to 1995. Ferrari did win races during that period, they just had rather stiff competition. 1991-1993 saw no race victories. Certainly they didn't build a very good car in those years, but it's nowhere near as bad as the Merc situation.
