Mercedes AMG F1 W12 - 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.

Really looking forward to what they unveil. They hadn't shown much of their plans last year when other teams were testing 2021 bits. The Merc launching a lot later than its rivals might be indicative of them hiding something until the very last minute.

They were waiting to find out who their drivers were going to be. If Hamilton hadn't signed, they'd have had to alter the design to fit George and his big feet in. :lol: :lol:

Haha I thought about that, but I doubted if that would cause enough of a delay to launch the car. :mrgreen:

Doesn't seem much different from last year's. It has the serrations on the flaps.

Looks like they may be going with silver and black like their Formula E car, which would be unfortunate in my opinion.

So, back to some silver again this year.

Btw, the way how they (over)use emojis in their tweets is so awkward.
