There's an article from Mercedes discussing similar sentiments. That the team are looking up and down the grid to decide which philosophy they wish to follow next year, which ideas from which cars they think work the best and that everything is under review. They also say that their sidepods are not really a key differentiator but that the underfloor and the geometries are more important.
It'll be interesting to see what comes out of the wash next year, but I'll make a bold "wish" and say that I hope the team have moved development totally to next years car to give us a good platform for next year, unless those pieces we can develop this year can also help next year.
On another note, I've just discovered all the article and videos on the web about front wing flexing with Ferrari, RB and Merc. Does this "phenomenon" also happen with Mclaren to anyone's knowledge?
It's noticeable on the Ferrari and RB but quite prominent on the Merc. Wasn't this banned somehow?
