Mercedes W10 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.

Does anyone know where that interview was shot? at the HQ? The lineup of cars in the background is quite orgasmic!

Is that an officially sanctioned sketch or a fan drawing?

Yes W09. It's just a nice fake blueprint from their official video.

Jeezes, you got to hand it to them: WCC for the 5th time and still staying so open to the media and fans about their new challenger and previous designs. What a team! =D>
Mercedes AMG + Hamilton => dreamteam!

They have even painted the tire with this camo paint?

Of course! So I guess the camo livery is just for teasing us before the car launch, I don't think the real car will have it.

They print these drawings with proper engineering drawing borders which then get signed by the directors and are given to employees. They have been doing this for a few years now.
How much TQ does it make though?

The fin coming out the bottom front of the sidepod is interesting, looks like its designed to push air down and out over the floor pretty aggressively.
