On Christmas day you sat down to create all of the 2019 team threads. You're an F1 animal @Manoah2u!
Countdown to 91: 9 more victories ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Mercedes: after Toto Wolff's alarm, found a dozen more horsepower on the engine

The 2019 power unit is the result of a new project and at the beginning of the development work on the new engine the results were not too exciting. Now it seems that the engineers led by Andy Cowell have found a dozen more horses on the 6-cylinder world champion.

That's a nice gain if true from the ICE side. I believe the areas to look for more from Mercedes are the Turbo and the ERS.

They made similar noises before the 2018 season, only for Ferrari to arrive with even more power. Their words should be received with caution until Melbourne (or the first power circuit).

Can you please publish the link that you are referring to?

This is the only article that I remember reading, which was published last January and Andy Cowell doesn't claim anywhere about big gains.
Link ->Mercedes 2018 F1 engine will be 'pretty much all new'
"There's still gains to be had [with this formula]. It's a plethora of marginal gains, five millisecond gains.

"Then there's those nice surprises where you thought north would give you 2kW and actually it's south that gives you 2kW.
They ended 2017 pretty much on par with each other and started 2018 on a similar levels of PU performance. As much as I saw through the season, it was only at Germany was when we first witnessed a bit of superiority of Ferrari and definitely not at the beginning of the season.

Sorry for the laaaaate reply. I can't find the link now, but yours is pretty good.
In it, Andy Cowell mentions gains in several places in a tone that's quite boastful. 2 kilowatt gains in a few places will easily yield a multiple horsepower bonus (perhaps the 12 horsepower mentioned for 2019, maybe more, maybe less); in the least, an impressive power gain.

I'm waiting to see what the appointment of the new CEO is going to do. I hear hes much more of a racing nut than Dieter Zetsche.

As Ola Kallenius set up HPP in Brixworth as it is now. I'd expect it all to carry on - seamlessly.

I don't really think they would go on with such radical change. maybe just for the testing. I would like a livery change though

Agreed....they're the "Silver Arrows"...
In 2007 I had the chance to go to a meet-and-greet with an F1 test driver. I decided not to as I didn't think he'd even amount to much...he was the BMW Sauber test driver and his name was Sebastian Vettel...
