Would be interesting to see what Mercedes net spend is these days. Back in the Mclaren days it was 80 million + engines.

They have indeed. Hugo Boss and Epson are new for 2015. They have also announced a new partnership with Schuberth providing them special helmets for the pit crew.

After all the discussions about the updated livery on the W06, I have to say that I am disappointed, 95% it looks like the launch version of the previous car.

Let's just hope that as far as aesthetics go, there are some changes down the line before the first race.

Filming day. All teams get them as wild cards to just pull out and say "we want to film the car" and run it.

Torro Rosso did the same a few days ago. Just got one fly by out of them,

If I am not wrong they can do 100km, which is not bad.
