Was Mercedes strong in Melbourne and Sepang? No.
But you can hardly write off their whole season. They have a good technical team in place. They have two intelligent drivers in Schumacher and Rosberg. Give them time to improve. You surely didn't expect them on podiums from race 1 after finishing fourth last year?
The most telling thing so far is that Schumacher doesn't seem worried. He seems far more positive this year than the last two. When last year he realised he had a bad car he said that he didn't expect to win or compete with top teams. This year if he says the car is a step forward then it is.
If you as a Mercedes fan are disappointed they probably are far more disappointed. I am sure they are working hard even now to fix the problem. If by mid season they still haven't fixed it then you can start saying that its a crap car and Mercedes is doomed.
