If Mercedes do get 2nd in the WCC it will be mammoth effort considering the talk was about them finishing in the midfield in 2013.

For me the arrival of Lewis has installed a new air of confidence at Mercs which is causing the engineers and co to push with the cars development as they must know the advantage in having a driver who is just raw regards talent and will drive through any quirks thus helping them to push even harder with the W04, the same for Nico as well who has lifted his game to higher level since the arrival of Lewis from Mclaren.

Two top drivers bringing an inconsistent car in race mode into play regards the WCC.

Merc need to step-up. The Red Bull will be difficult to catch. Truly hope that Merc with its great driver pair could do great.

Still the strongest line-up even with the new driver changes

Thepain, agree about the strongest line up but not on paper. Nico/Lewis v Alonso/Kimi Nico would be the weak link all though I think he is has good as the rest on his day.

As for Red Bull like most this season the cars mechanical and aero package has been hindered by trying to save fragile tyres but since the introduction of the new combined compound the RB9's mechanical and aero potential has come into reality and his just far superior to the rest. The RB9 driven by Vettel or any top driver would to much for the rest.
