Mercedes W08 Speculation Thread

A place to discuss the characteristics of the cars in Formula One, both current as well as historical. Laptimes, driver worshipping and team chatter does not belong here.

That looks like projected lighting. It doesn't look like those streaks are painted on. However, I could be wrong based on closer inspection of that first pic.

It seems that's actually it. The neon is not covering the S of PETRONAS on the sidepod, the S is covering the neon

It could just be rendered, or maybe luminescent paint? :D That would be cool in the night races

LUMINESCENT, that's the word, thanks! Coupled with a chrome livery (a la McLaren) maybe is a punch in the eyes

Looking at the nose pic, I get Lewis' boat comment.
Hoping for a beautiful boat then.

The nose looks to be pretty much exactly the same as last years...?
