That sounds like a way to hinder development. Incremental improvements to a strong baseline spec I believe is one of the reasons RBR were/are so formidable.De Jokke wrote:Guys, why releasing it now, when they have such a large advantage, shouldn't they keep it "in the pipe" and release it when the competition starts to gain on them?
There's no reason to keep performance back. Certainly not this type of performance: it's easily recognizable what they try to achieve, and something other teams also would know even without mercedes showing it. The difficult part is getting the same short nose: it takes a very complex strength structure to achieve that. If the rumors are true and mercedes, a team with a massive budget and expertise, failed the crash tests 5 times prior getting it succeeded, then chances are all the other teams, exception perhaps might be red bull, will have equal or even more problems.De Jokke wrote:Guys, why releasing it now, when they have such a large advantage, shouldn't they keep it "in the pipe" and release it when the competition starts to gain on them?

What Mercedes have been trying to achieve has been know about for a long time now. The nose fits in with the philosophy of the car and vice verse. It may not be a solution that works for others.De Jokke wrote:But can't other teams now get ideas of how merc managed to do it 'cause it's out in the open now?
