Surprisingly quiet for Merc up to this point. Still convinced they end up the nearest challenger🤞

Hope they’ve at least been practicing pit stops.

After the past couple of years, its probably best to be quiet. Absolutely massive year for all involved...two years really because if the W15 fails, then you likely can throw away 2025 too.

Fingers crossed

The post above me says if Merc struggle this season then next season will be thrown away.

So I’m just saying it could happen as all dominant teams eventually loose their edge like history has proven.

Considering they have won 8 titles in 10 years is a good run =D>

Am I wrong?

Merc and by extension Lewis not being at the front for another 2 years would be a net negative for the sport, even if it's true that the team has had a very strong decade

Sorry I missed that it was in response to that. I'm too used to using quotes for it.

👍🏻
I should have quoted them as you say. Sometimes I just post as quick as I can instead of taking the time to create a proper response- then I end up posting numerous times explaining myself which makes the process even longer than just doing it right first time :roll:

Not really.

The sport has gone along just fine with neither of them leading. Eight years of them was more than enough fill for the sport for many many years. Selfish to say otherwise tbh. In fact, Williams, Macca, Ferrari would be much more welcome and better for the sport leading than Merc. By a long shot actually. Not even close. I’d even bet many in this very Merc forum would have no problem with a Williams resurgence to the sharp end.

New contract extension for Toto. He’s going nowhere. Mercedes also extending Brackley headquarters, and increasing staff numbers to around 2000. Cost around £30m.

Veeery cautiously optimistic =D>

Happy for Toto, maybe I'm crazy but I still think he is the right person for the job. I trust him.

If there's one team you'd bet to catch Red Bull it could only be Mercedes. Ferrari can build the outright fastest car, but even though Mercedes have recently struggled operationally with pit stops, strategies they can catch up on that part, and no doubt they'll do some creative work to hopefully bring W15 to the front.

Better for the sport how precisely?
