topdog. i had always read the thread. had you? it is about work on the merc!
and if you believe that it is the 15bhp that is causing handling problems and wear, think again. force india use the same engine and can do the race with fewer stops. it is the mechanical grip, suspension set up that is the problem. merc have been playing around with fric for two years, so maybe that is at the root cause of their problem? by putting extra pressure into the front to raise it, it also has an equal and opposite effect in that it increases the load on the tyres. also, the manner in which a car is driven also affects the tyres.
