Mercedes unveiled their new W12 today, but were secretive about where they spent their development tokens…
The German manufacturer based in Brackley have been crowned double World Champions for the past seven years running, in a record breaking sequence of years that is probably not over yet. With the new downforce regulations, Mercedes aren’t likely to lose that much time and will more than likely be at the top again.
Being one of only three teams that kept the same driver line-up as last season, Sir Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas were buzzing to get back into the cockpit. The Fin explained how much he has learnt over the break between seasons and is keen push Hamilton again.
Pre-season testing is just around the corner, starting on the 12th March in Sakhir so it’s only a matter of time before we see if anyone can compete with the dominant Mercedes.
