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.

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
But it also resembles last years launch spec nose, so im starting to doubt it

What is it with livery launches? The punters don't care, they want to see the cars, not the adverts! :wink:

The red will be on the airbox
You are correct.

Just me' or is that more of a Magenta colour- which is waaaaay better than Red.. I mean.. Red is linked to another ever so slightly famous race team.. So far im liking this - and Yes livery is important aesthetically and design is important as well...

Keep in mind that they'll not show the W11 but the early version of the W10 it seems.

It could also be that they only show the INEOS related color/advertisement on the car, and the rest later.
So not the entire livery yet.

Edit: I was wrong. :)

oh God no, that's hideous! Is that how they try to keep Lewis, by painting it a bit red.
Come on, this just doesn't match...
