Mercedes recruiting themselves into a position whereby they have to start an era of domination. Anything else will be bordering Toyota.

Yeah, Mercedes are certainly building an empire. Nothing but championships in the future will be failure. They seem to have the right structure in place. It was evident in their massive improvements this past year.

Let's just not have a repeat of what we saw on this forum with Willis and Costa. It takes time for the effect of new hires (and new money for that matter) to reverberate down to the track.

2011
People on F1Tech, "The W02 is on track, and the W03 far into development. We won't see any effect from Willis and Costa until 2013. I don't know why you Merc fanbois are so excited!?!?"

2012
Those SAME people, "The car is garbage! Obviously hiring Willis and Costa has done NOTHING!!"

2013
Same people again, "I don't know where all this speed suddenly came from!"

--I'm calling it now. The second Mercedes stumbles in the second half of 2014, we're going to see the obligatory, "Poaching Ellis and Wood has done NOTHING!" :wink:

They can still afford to come second next year and still be on a more impressive path then Red Bull. But 2015-16-17-18 they must win.
Certainly it seems that if there´s a time for Mercedes to start dominating F1, it´s right now.

well, the amount of time they have been spending on the 2014 car and the noises they have been making about the 2014 - i expect them to win the championship or its a failure

Time spent on a machine is no indicator it will be any good.
But the signing of Newey's two trusted lieutenants is a huge coup for mercedes.
How some things(rake etc) are achieved will no doubt be passed on.

404 days since Michael Schumacher's last gp with Mercedes F1 team.

is there actually some real news regarding the Mercedes team for 2014? :roll:

"Hamilton was beating Verstappen 7-0, then the ref decided F%$& rules, next goal wins
while also sending off 4 Hamilton players to make it more interesting"
