I wish Merc would stop making statements like this at every race.

They just keep making themselves and their drivers look stupid at evry race by never achieving thier bold claims.

They are able to make surprises only in qualifying.With full fuel tank and heavy tyres Mercedes is a disaster.I am disapionted with them considering that Mercedes is my favourite car manufacter.

IMHO opinion I can only see Merc getting worse as time goes on. After all in order to win in F1 you need to beat the two best cars on the grid (RBR) then you need to beat the mighty mac's and of course Ferrari. No easy task as these teams are renowned for their progression as time goes on. Fair play to merc for getting back into F1 though.
They're lucky they have someone as good as barbieberg in the driving seat. The other seat needs to be given to di resta asap
