in Abu dhabi Mercedes was testing a new cooling system their pu was not detuned these just staff made up by media.merc has in the past benefited from some exotic rule changes they never solved their tire issues in fact the tires were change to accommodate them and when Rbr and ferrari had a descent pu the front wing was change and they had no competition it took 2 years for Rbr to recover ferrari never did.i just hope the new regulation for the first time affect merc so we can finally have a competitive season
Literally everything you just typed was clearly misinformed or perhaps you're just trolling, I honestly don't know.
Merc is arguably the best structured, organized, and funded team of the hybrid era. When "exotic"(?) rule changes happen, everyone has the same opportunity to adjust. So when the best run team in F1 adjusts best to the rule changes, people say, "Oh, look at Merc, F1 changed the rules to keep benefiting them! That's not fair!"
Ferrari fell behind because they had a cheating engine and were penalized when they had to play by the rules. RBR doesn't have the same synergy (well, they might now that they can develop the Honda IP) that Merc (and Ferrari/Alpine) have by developing a PU and chassis side by side. RBR has arguably the best engineer/aerodynamicist of all time in Mr. Newey.
Look at the stability in Merc. They've only had ONE driver change since 2013 and that was due to a retirement. RBR has a second-seat revolving door. That says something about the inner workings of a team. My point is, and what is relevant to this thread is that Merc simply does the best with their organization, plain and simple. From front desk receptionist to world championship driver. And that's why I certainly will not be surprised to see Merc getting the race win on Sunday.
