Mercedes AMG F1 W06

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.

Were you given proper education? If so, use it. :wink:
English is obviously not my fist language, why would Mercedes launch a W05-B? The regulations haven't changed much hence the car hasn't changed much visually. Even though you can clearly see its a totally different car.

And about my education, i will get my MBA soon so don't you worry pal :D.
Kool racer. He is not talking about whether the car is the W06, he was wondering if the video is real spy shot by an unscrupulous person or a prank video by Mercedes.

It's a filming day car. So probably a junk chassis from last year with new sponsors and new front nose/ wing. Still faster then most of the 2015 field.

We will soon see if it's in fact the real W06.

Nose and airbox are new.
Sidepods too.

Taking a second look everything is different, suspension, vanes under the nose (not sure on that one), brake ducts... it's the new car.

Looks like an interesting nose, looks like it will block less air than the nose on the MP4-30 launch car.

Dear FIA, if you read this, please pm me for a redesign of the Technical Regulations to avoid finger nose shapes for 2016! :-)

Looks that way to me as well.

The sidepod slope is what seems to be more pronounced this time.

Doesn't look too different from the W05. A subtle Evolution methinks. Note that this is not a negative thing seeing the Performance of the W05.
