Well having seen this I have to say your claim of the 35M being in the video is sounding more credible, I still don’t believe it however

I think that it makes no sense for them to hide especially those parts of the chassis that will remain from last year. They are currently being disassembled and refined. At the same time, they apparently have a closed workshop where completely new components are made, and soon last year's chassis will be transported there for final assembly.

Mclaren should have secured Nico Hulkenberg, Kevin Magnussen or Danil Kvyat, since they are all very fresh in terms of F1 cars and capable of delivering points.
If i would get the money to start my own F1 team, i would revive Arrows

So Lando, but I thought proteus was talking as reserve driver

Thing is any of these guys would love to jump in the car if needed regardless of being an official reserve driver or not, but some sim time would be a bonus

“It’s obviously a big task switching to the Mercedes power unit for next year,” said Seidl. “But I have to say I’m very happy with the progress we’re seeing there. I would say the car build is going along very well. The relationship, together with the guys from Brixworth, from Mercedes, has started also on a very good basis. There’s a very good dialogue and technical exchange, so I’m very happy with that.”

I don’t know how reliable Italian Motorsport.com, but they’re putting Mercedes PU gains at 25bhp. Does anybody know how reliable they are with such reports?

New MCL35M update video uploaded to the App (exclusive to PLUS members for now). Good detail on there -- build on Chassis #1 starts next week, chassis has changed "quite a bit", new transmission is built, new livery coming which will be nicely "evolved", team targeting good pace of upgrades

Don't believe it. Of course, there can be an increase in power, but only the creator of the motor or his client can tell you about this. Journalists often speculate on these topics in winter.
