Mercedes W11 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.

The stars seem to cover the whole side pod now.
They could extend a little bit further this year.

If you look closely, the stars extended to "O" (ever so faintly) in "Petronas" on last year's W10.

Also looks like they're keeping the same FW style form last year, rather than the Ferrari style

It could of course just be fitted with a '19 wing, as usual per launch spec

and the nosecone width seem in line with, what was shown earlier in that video, atleast to my eye. Merc might end up presenting the most interesting car this year, or the one with the biggest changes atleast

Probably an illusion from the lens focal length, but the rear wing looks narrow. Almost like the 2009 wing. Is this really this year's car or is this a display car?
