Mercedes W10 Speculation Thread

A place to discuss the characteristics of the cars in Formula One, both current as well as historical. Laptimes, driver worshipping and team chatter does not belong here.

Mercedes always teases with old cars every single year.
Can you find me a picture where they've used 3 longitudinal slits on the floor? Just watching from Abu Dhabi pics.

This is from last year

Never said they exclusively use an old car. They tend to mix it. Especially if you see a real life photo.

The 2019 front wing was obvious right.

We will see the new car any day now.

It's got the inner holes in it so it looks like last year's wheel.
Do you mean this one?

From my point of view, they`ve won both WDC and WCC after the summer break with the help of these new rims ...
And furthermore, I could see this year a lot of development in this particular area, from all teams ...
But it`s quite refreshing to see that they`ve got a head start :mrgreen:

It's all about building interest. "Any publicity is good publicity" as they say. :lol:

Ok ok. =D>

Although........ If the car isn't launched until the afternoon here in the UK, it would mean its the 14th in the land down under. So it would still have been 2 days to go for you :lol:
