Mercedes W09 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.

I'm really looking forward to seeing what Merc have come up with. The cars we have seen so far have impressed me with there ideas etc.

Looks like they have just taken the W08 nose tease picture from last year and resposted it as the W09. It looks just the same, angle, shape, and livery wise.
There's clearly a halo mounted, no it's not just a repost of the W08 pictures
I was specifically talking about the nose.

Isn't that something like this?

This is W06 by the way. They introduced it in Canada that year as part of a bigger cooling package for the ERS.

Mercedes has a recent history of changing noses either in preseason or mid-season, it wouldn't surprise me if they launched the car with a late 2017 nose.

It is, if I'm not mistaken, for a video of Hamilton and his championship-winning cars. Hamilton didn't win a WDC with W07, so that's why it's not there.
