Funny thing is the Qualcomm logo has already been on W06 since the beginning, but it took them a bit too long to announce it :mrgreen:

I hope they've upgraded the fuel tank on the safety car.

I can't read german, but does this is something to protect drivers from accidents like Jules had?

Yes. The image reads "Mercedes in der technischen Arbeitsgruppe einen Vorschlag eingebracht, wie man den Koptschutz in der Formel 1 verbessern kann. Wir zeigen Ihnen die Idee des Cockpit-Bügels ... " - Translated; the technical group of Mercedes brought a suggestion how to improve head-protection in F1.
Not for nothing, Rosberg's Championship is the only thing that lends credibility to Hamilton's recent success. Otherwise, he'd just be the guy who's had the best car. — bhall II

I think it is important to put the team into the current financial context of the owner. The economics are 180° from the dark period when the big manufacturers left the sport.

It is worth to point out that the Chairman's Letter in the 2014 Annual Report starts like this...
In last year’s season, our Silver Arrows won everything that was to be won in
Formula1 racing: the drivers’ championship and the constructors’ championship.
That’s a fantastic achievement – for which our drivers and our engineers in
Brackley, Brixworth and Stuttgart worked with great determination and perseverance.
But it isn’t just our motorsport colleagues who in recent years have
made good progress step by step, but the entire Daimler Group.
All in all the financial foundation of the F1 Team is excellent.
