I do no think they need to change anything in terms of concept or develop one area more than the rest.
They simply need to do exactly what they have done this year. They smashed the WDC and WCC so the recipe works just fine.
Chances are all of the other teams know they cannot beat Mercedes until the 2021 rule changes, so I suspect next year will be even easier for them as others look ahead and treat next year as somewhat of a throwaway.
The only team that looked close to worrying them this year was Ferrari.... but after clarifications and extra sensors, they will most likely take the same 30+ second hammering at nearly all the races next year as they have in the last few races when they lost the magic engine.
I don't agree, the W10 showed weakness in the start of the season, and if Ferrari hadn't screwed up so much this year, im sure the title fight could have been much closer.
