Why do you waste space on this spurious morale boosting claptrap ,when none of the teams has the slightest idea how competitive they will be next season . Even after the first test it will still be wishful thinking. Marussia/Caterham any other could just easily say the same and it would mean just as much.

I see Mercedes getting it all horribly wrong next year without Ross Brawn. Then it will just be a matter of time until Mercedes quits with it's own F1 team and goes back to just supplying engines.

I reckon the car and engine will pretty reasonably strong.

it's more likely that management and issues managing a certain diva will probably be their biggest stumbling block. If they have no setbacks they should be pretty strong, they have no excuses.

taz. merc have been having more problems with their engine than the other two suppliers. so nobody knows if they will be strong or not. that is unless you have been listening to pcxmerc?

and I do remember four years ago, merc were saying that they would be fighting for both championships then too.

I am sure that Ferrari will say the same, and lotus, and sauber, and even caterham.....

Call it an educated guess. Certainly at the last major engine regulation changes, Merc were strong straight away.

taz. big difference between lopping two cylinders off a v10, to designing from scratch a six cylinder small capacity turbo, which they have never had any experience of. whereas both Ferrari and Renault have oodles of turbo experience.

True but to balance that they have more experience of energy recovery systems.

Lets face it, we're guessing.
