F1 » Mercedes 'unveils' new car, a 'clear step forward'

Ross Brawn: 2013 marks the start of a second era for our Silver Arrows works team. The restructuring we undertook at the team over the past 18 months are now growing in maturity and this is reflected in the F1 W04, which is a clear step forward in design and detail sophistication over its predecessor.

I read a little Gary Anderson comment on the side of the BBC's article on this and he didn't think it was a clear step forward at all, if anything he seemed concerned at the lack of progression. He felt the opposite when commenting on the McLaren though.
Until we see how it pans out on the track we won't know but i have a feeling he may be right. Time will tell, not too long before the season starts and we can stop speculating and see some more racing :)

The Merc just seems to have too much bodywork yet again, and something not right about the way it looks imo. Compared to the RB, Mclaren, Ferrari and especially the svelte Sauber, it looks FAT

@CubikRube - Well James Allen thought the complete opposite to Gary Anderson, I know Gary is supposed to be an expert but if you watch some of the BBC F1 coverage you will be baffled by some of his stupid comments. The fins coming out of the side of the cockpit and the twisted downwards pointing sidepods immediately stand out and do you honestly think this is what will turn up in Melbourne?

I think its going to be critical that Nico and Lewis get along this year. Ross could really come good this year if he can 'manage' the team and the sharks. I love the way the car looks head on, hopefully it manages the tires well this year, I have to think that tire management slowed them down more than aero.
