Yeah, we do. It's the name of the team. This is a technical forum, and we should get the details right.raymondu999 wrote:Do we really need to make a big fuss over "GP" vs "AMG?" I'm sure the members of the forum still understand which team we're talking about.
I remember in 2011 I was begging them on twitter to have AMG in the nameCocles wrote:Yeah, we do. It's the name of the team.

Besides, Mercedes GP sounded like something a 10 year old would make up. I'm as die hard a Mercedes fan as they come, and even I danced for joy when they changed it to something else, AMG all the better.
I don't want to make excuses for this team - who I think have made fundamental errors in their process - but I do think what Button has said recently about at the start of the seasons some teams "lucking" into a car design that was perfect for the tyres has some weight. While we've always known Mercedes as a tyre chewer, but they appeared to make great progress towards the end of 2011 in this regard, and I do often wonder if the W03 would have been a lot more successful car with 2011 Pirelli's.diego1960 wrote:True although it must be noted that we where hopeful of the W03 as we saw a completely different and more orthological design than the W02 (lower sidepods, different nose, evolved FW etc.) and if you remember we praised them for the attention to detail, a big difference from 2012 with the "squashed" Volvo exhaust
google translated a german website.On the new car would be working "for twelve months or longer," he says. At that time, after again disappointing verlaufenen season 2011, an internal restructuring was under way, the results of the current technical formation with Bob Bell, Aldo Costa, Geoff Willis and Mike Elliott, and a 50 - spiked to 60-percent model wind tunnel is. Brawn remembers well: "Twelve months ago we realized that we need to strengthen the organization."
"Geoff Willis has come to us this summer, we have also brought more people. We have updated and improved the wind tunnel. All this has been going for quite a while," said the Briton. The focus of the changes was the aerodynamics: "We made the decision to restructure the aero group following a restructuring, it takes always a bit until a group has recorded.." The Mercedes was from mid-2012 to feel as in the balance of the formula is loaded with one of the top speed in reverse.
"Loic Bigois, who led the group, left the team in April / May. Then we had to wait until Mike Elliott came because he was still with Lotus. Mike could not come until a little later to us, and the gap between Loic and we have Mike "not particularly well stuffed admits Brawn. "At the same time we introduced the 50 - to 60-percent on the wind tunnel, as well as a few other things within the Aero-The group has already had an impact Maybe we would be able to transition a bit better solved..."
But since Elliott has taken his post and the wind tunnel has been fully calibrated, the restructuring of the Mercedes-Aerodynamics is complete. This means that in the very early planning stages of the project may still be easy 2013er turmoil could be felt, but in essence there should be for the new car, no more excuses. In Brackley, Brixworth and Stuttgart, we know: In the fourth year must finally come a significant step forward.
Speaking of Brackley and Brixworth: cooperation between engine and chassis department is now working well, which is possible in view of 2014 will be a decisive advantage. For then uses a revolutionary new engine formula - and the integration between the chassis and the engine is more important. "The relationship developed between the chassis and engines in Brackley in Brixworth well. This is very important with regard to 2014," says Brawn. "2014 is a huge opportunity, and I think we will show our strength as a unit."

Remember when mentioning the Silver Arrows was synonymous with a great team of champions and their champion drivers..... Mercedes needs to get their stuff together and become that historic Silver Arrow that put Ferrari on Chek at Monza the Brits on check at Silverstone... I hope Hamilton man manage a few wins next season...MercAMGF1Fans wrote:The silver cars with a dash of petronas teal on them?
