F1 » Brawn: Mercedes GP lacking preparation and consistency


Ross Brawn has acknowledged that Mercedes Grand Prix is perhaps not quite as competitive as it needs to be heading to Bahrain - but the objective for the first race of F1 2010, he makes very clear, remains the same

Here is an interesting fact, if you combine Nico Rosbergs sector times at Barcelona he would have been 0.5 seconds faster than Lewis hamiltons 1:20.4.
James Allen picked up on it earlier this week.

Also Auto Motor und Sport has it that Mercedes will be sporting a new front wing, new sidepods, new diffuser AND a new floor.

Not an average upgrade before someone starts yelping about "everyone else is bringing updates".

Cannot bloody wait! :)

Nico also said
Above all, I wanted to show the team that the car runs equally well when I am at the wheel. Sorry for removing the quotations marks as crash doesn't allow them apparently. He is saying he is the man at Merc..

If you claim to be equal to the greatest driver on earth you must think your the MAN. He said at the start he was not the number two. I'm starting to believe him. And yes I am stirring the pot. :blush:

“We have an update for Bahrain. We decided not to bring it to Barcelona, but to leave it until the last moment. We've learnt to assess and run pieces without testing them." Don't believe they won't be competitive

New front wing, new side pods, new diffuser, new floor, as there is no roof on an F1 car it amounts to a new car, the trouble is a new F1 car normally spends quite some time testing before the racing starts and all fingers are tightly crossed hoping that all is well and no need to reverse engineer.
