rob. I did not say they are glory runs, but you, as an engineer should know, that you always test a product beyond its specified limits to see how it copes. merc are just doing that....ignoring fuel consumption limits, increasing turbo boost etc. that way they will know what they can do in a race, should the occasion demand it. in my mind that is a sensible thing to do.
