Looks pretty good I think, was looking forward to this launch more than the other's, really feel Mercedes are going to be up there from this year onwards.
The comments from Nico and Michael suggest this car is fast and a vast improvement over last yr's. Looks to be a great starting point and could be the second fastest outfit on the grid.
If there is a line up change for 2013 I hope Lewis joins up with Brawn, he would learn so much.

This looks like the best new design of the pack. The weight distribution is much better than Ferrari's front nose. Or Mercedes got it right or McLaren got it right. Rosberg or Hamilton or maybe Vettel overdriving his RedBull.

That nose isn't elegant :rolleyes:

The rest of the car look spretty similar to last years car. I'm sure Gary Anderson will bore us to death in autosport pointing out the changes.

really it is little different in appearance to an other car. as as to it looking fast? unfortunately looks dont win races!

but i see that it is already having problems. in the photo shoot, it was plain to see that both lower sides were suffering burning.

@JimC

They don't need Newey, they already have Brawn, which produced quite a few title winners as well. And not all the cars Newey produced are a winner.
