All the slower ones are because of Ferrari screwed with engine. The biggest gain from repainting mercedes in pink.
As said before, only RBR and Ferrari engine powered cars are slower.
But hey, now that I think of it, Mercedes’ biggest gain coming from painting their 2020 car black! Have not seen any reasonable explanation as on why this makes the car that much faster. It is significant. Pink also is a very fast color indeed. Weird Mercedes did not discover this in the past years. So much for windtunnel testing. Maybe it behaves different in sunlight and/or rain? Did they upgrade their windtunnel to LED illumination? Or even... laser? Maybe it also explains why Ferrari is that slow, it could all relate to the solar activity and red paint. And McLaren were not slow due to Honda but Orange is just that much faster; only think of Max Verstappen. Explains also why he outpaces his rivals. Thanks for the hint, you opened my eyes. It all makes sense now.
Imagine Vettel driving the pink Mercedes running this year’s Mercedes rear suspension will make other cars look even slower next year.
