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.

Is it my eyes or does it look like a single element between the nose and the wing?

I realise they were already the best so refinement was all that was required, but if that’s the W09, is it wrong for me to be underwhelmed? Only because it is rather similar. No doubt it’ll be a winner.

Looks like a natural evolution of the W08, which is logical. Just from the wet weather tires I cant tell if the W09 has higher rake or no.

I agree. Very unlike Merc to have a car that basically looks (from that pic) like a copy and paste from last years car, apart from a few obvious changes/additions.
