    Preview of Ferrari suspension then as they use Ferrari bits for this and attach to a Ferrari gearbox, no?

    Andy Cowell on the W10

    " We've made changes to the cooling architecture of the Power Unit, which hopefully provide aerodynamic benefit on the car and also provide efficiency benefit on the Power Unit - so, hopefully a win on both the chassis and on the Power Unit."

    "Right at the heart of the Power Unit is the conversion of fuel into heat release in the combustion chamber and useful work out of the crankshaft. We have made steps on the combustion efficiency and on the ERS system"

    "The marriage between the turbocharger assembly with the MGU-H, the inverter, the cells and the MGU-K: that whole system is now capable of operating more efficiently and helping with energy deployment through a race."

    "If you have got an efficient engine with efficient aerodynamics and you are prepared to do a little bit of lift and coasting, then you have the opportunity to start the race at less than 110kg."

    "For every 5kg of weight you save, it's about two tenths of a second a lap quicker, so there is a natural reward to starting the race a little bit lighter."

    "There is still a competitive edge from making an efficient car - both Power Unit and aerodynamics - and racing smartly to make sure that you have good pace at the start of the race as well as through the race."


    Allison on the W10 (rear tires)

    "We were still not as good as some of our competitors at preserving the performance of the rear tyres. We have worked hard on the suspension and aerodynamic characteristics to deliver a car that will be much kinder to its tyres......"

    Would be great if Ferrari can finally work together as a team ,without soo many unforced driver errors.If so they have a fighting chance.

    MB will no doubt produce a winning car but I’m hoping that Ferrari have made further hp gains as the Benz still had the most powerful engine on the grid even though the gap has closed. Do like the slender nose.

    Mercedes says it has worked hard to ensure its new W10 Formula 1 car is "much kinder" to its tyres that its predecessors. - https://www.autosport.com/f1/news/141467/mercedes-worked-hard-to-make-w10-kind-on-tyres

    Although Mercedes made significant progress last year in improving on the 'diva' characteristics of its tricky 2017 car, the W08, the team was still not satisfied with how well its '18 challenger was able to look after its tyres.

    Speaking as the W10 ran for the first time at Silverstone, technical director James Allison said Mercedes had put a lot of effort into ensuring there was a step gain in tyre management for 2019.

    "The handling of the W09 was a big improvement over the rather idiosyncratic W08," said Allison.

    "We managed to be competitive at tracks which had plagued us in recent years.

    "However, notwithstanding this improvement, we were still not as good as some of our competitors at preserving the performance of the rear tyres.

    "We have worked hard on the suspension and aerodynamic characteristics to deliver a car that will be much kinder to its tyres - enough, we hope, to allow us to be competitive at all phases of the race and at each track on the calendar."

    One of the team's other areas of focus was on reducing the weight of its car, as Mercedes' long-wheelbase concept has made it difficult for it to hit the minimum weight limit in recent years.

    Allison said an "aggressive" weight reduction programme had been undertaken on all areas of the car.

    "Even though the minimum weight limit was lifted by 10kg for 2019, weight reduction remains a real challenge on the current generation of F1 cars," he said.

    "Components that we felt were stripped to the bone in 2018 have been taken, one by one, and subjected to a further round of aggressive analysis to shave further weight from them.

    "Some components surrender what feels like a giant step of half a kilo, others just a few grams, but collectively each of these victories add up to a handful of kilos that have been invested back in the car on aerodynamics, suspension and power unit to bring performance."

    Mercedes' W10 retains the long wheelbase of its predecessors.

    I hope the Ferrari does look nicer, the Mercedes so far is not the worst looking car ever made.

    looks like some some massive opening in the engine cover above the B. I've never seen such a thing. Or are they just fooling us with some optical games?

    Yeah, I would take this "optical illusion" with a grain of salt let alone this one-off livery.

    I would wait till the car hits the track with the original livery and more clearer photo's come out.

    The coke bottle on that rb15 looks insane...one can only hope the tight Honda packaging also delivers in performance and reliability...if it does oh man, we have a contender and mclaren will look even dumber than they already do.

    I spy an angled exhaust & super low “boomerang” at the barge board area.
