It's a load of crap anyway, the rest of the teams said those tyres were better when they ran them too.
That doesn't exclude Merc from having a competitive advantage with the new tires. For instance the other teams can be a tenth better off with the new tires and Merc half a second.

I also feel that’s the case. Because Mercedes has always had a car which put much energy into the tyres and that’s exactly what you need this year. I think it’s as simple as that.
What’s not simple, however, is to adapt to the new tyres from get go. It’s a question of car concepts. That’s why it’s a bit unfair telling that other teams did a bad job because they had the same amount of testing time and could have reacted in a proper way. As I told, it’s surely not that easy.

Nobody in F1 is going to help Mercedes keep 'ruining the show' with dominating. it's a completely senseless idea that Pirelli would change the tyres to help Mercedes! why???

Pirelli changed the tyres after they were running too hot in Feb '18 testing as they hated having their tyres on TV with blisters. Then in the last race of last year Mercedes and only Mercedes ran extra sensors that then they and only they were allowed to run in the tyre test that followed

Then they responded to that by developing their car with lots of front downforce, changing it, and that's obviously why it was late for testing this year, with the Spec2 only coming in Test2

So their competitive advantage was being smarter, just like it was with the engine

You don’t start developing your car at the end of the previous season. By that time the project already is in it’s last phases, also Binotto told that.
James Allison told that they had started the W10 project already at the end of 2017!

AMuS assumes that Mercedes is likely to run all new engines with reduced power until they find out what caused Stroll's engine failure

"Wir bekommen von Racing Point gerade die Meldung, dass Mercedes wieder den alten Motor der ersten Spezifikation in das Auto von Lance Stroll eingebaut wird. Der Motorschaden wird Konsequenzen haben. Solange der Grund nicht gefunden ist, kann man davon ausgehen, dass Mercedes seine Triebwerke mit gedrosselter Leistung betreibt. Das würde auch das Werksteam betreffen und ist vielleicht eine Erklärung, warum Ferrari vorne liegt. "

As long as the reason is not found, one can assume that Mercedes operates its engines with throttled achievement. That would also affect the factory team and may explain why Ferrari is ahead."

yes that's true but James also explained how the Week1 version had inwashing endplates, as we saw anyway, and was super slow and then they changed it. that's why it was late

Awesomest pit exit of the year. Always good for some excitement.

Those endplates were not inwashing. Scarbs explained in one of his videos how it was a clever way of outwash.

Edit: I just noticed that you wrote it was James who told the endplates were inwashing. Would like to watch that. Do you have a link?
