Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team Updates

So much today!!

1. Mercedes committed to a long term future in the sport!!
2. INEOS becomes a one-third owner of the team through a stock purchase!!
3. Toto Wolf commits to a 3 year term as TP and then moving to another executive position, thereafter!!
4. HAMs contract is almost ready for inking...only a few details remain and he will be committed for another 3 years!!

And before anyone starts b*tching and moaning about dominance, boredom, cheating, etc., get your preferred team to up their game. You don't criticize the valedictorian of the class because some slap-dick can't make higher than a "D", don't criticize Mercedes F1 for nailing the formula time and time again.

Let the Wailing and Gnashing of Teeth begin.

I am. But I recognize greatness in Lewis. Same as Senna, Prost and Schumacher before.

Btw, I also like Max and he is a future champ for sure.

I love F1 and appreciate more than 1 specific driver. Unlike football where there is only one club

I wonder if Toto's 3 year TP deal is part of the stock sale to Ineos. Seems like he wanted to hang up his TP cloak, but this was the best way to keep his investment in the team valued at top dollar for the sale.

None the less, I'm really looking forward to see if the playing field is leveled for 2022 or Merc dominating yet again and the other teams crying about it. The PU isn't going to change much so if the non-Merc PU suppliers haven't caught up at this point, it's on them.

Actually I have nice memories from last weekend in Abu Dhabi...

"The PU isn't going to change much" ?
Well from what I saw last weekend changed "A LOT"

Turn a 15 sec. second gap into a 15 second lead ...
15 + 15 = 30 sec. !

I wouldn't change that...Perfect !

NOT lol . According Toto Merc had to turn the power down .
Nothing was changed at the PU .
The Energy Store is a specialist battery specific to each Formula 1 PU that stores electricity harvested from the MGU-K and MGU-H.
The Merc battery was almost to his end of lifetime , because it gives more power than the other teams are having.
That's the Merc's MAGIC-Mode . Where it gets the crazy torque from..
Merc had to turn (a little) the electric power down . By this the Merc was 0.01sec. slower.

As far as I know is 0.01 sec NOT a difference of +/- 30 sec.

Really mate ?
There was also a reason why the Ferrari's ran like a bullet in 2019 !
Can you please tell me why the Ferrari's ran faster , and why they are transformed in turtles today ?
Note : The Ferrari strawberry, grapefruit smell disappeared as well !

=> https://www.gpfans.com/en/articles/3...uel-smells-of/

Don't think that happened on another F* planet !
I strongly believe that some guys are blind...Or they suffer from amnesia !
There is "ALWAYS" a reason why car A is faster than car B .
Approved by the FIA or not...
MAX won in Abu Dhabi . Why do you think he could win this race while he was relaxed behind his steering wheel ?
Right ! The RB16 was faster than the Merc's . That's why he destroyed even the GOAT !
Is MAX the GOAT now or what ?
And HAM the GOAT destroyed the rest in 90% of the season because his Merc was faster by the extra power made by the W11 !
As you could see , things can change quickly as you could see in Abu Dhabi..
The Mercs issue at Abu Dhabi was the Mercs MGU-K element . It was almost at his end of lifetime !
Give me a break !

Advice : Please wake up mate ASAP !

mate its about Merc' not Ferrari.. Merc's never smelled like fruit juice..

before you were telling that Merc' knew hybrids will come 16 years ago and they were working on hybrids few decades ago.. there were talks about start lights that Merc' automated the sequence which their timing is being made by human each race no way to do that.. now you re telling that their battery can push more hp than others thats why they needed to dial it down during the race..

i see where its going..
next week it ll be Pirelli gives different compounds to Merc' for them to be faster on corners.. then it ll be something like Alonso's rocketship joke that Merc' have a tiny but powerful rocketship under the hood that FIA cant see because its invisible to the naked eye.. then Merc' manipulates the weather when they re on the straight only to give them tail wind to increase their top speed..

mate.. i dont know how you see the world but not every organization or person becomes successful by cheating.. and the ones deserved to be successful deserves some respect as well..

Basically what the two Max fanboys are saying is that they now have a 15-30 second advantage.

If Max & RB don't win races next year by 15-30 seconds, we better not hear any complaining from you two. You two clearly believe that RB has now moved ahead of Merc and have the advantage.

Negative mate .
It was just an example to make you understand why a car can be faster than another car .
And that was the Ferrari Jet-Mode in 2019 . And that's why the Ferrari was faster by cheating .
The whole Ferrari-box and pitlane smelled like strawberries ! Confirmed by all the other teams !
I never said 16 years mate . I said Mercedes had already years of advantage in 2014.
Cheating in F1 was always present . And it always will be !
Jean Todt is a F* clown anyway ..

Rocketship ?
That's the Merc W11 in warp speed mate , using the Party-Mode and the Magic-Mode !
But beaten by a RB16 in the last race of season .

Negative mate !
In the last race of this season in Abu Dhabi ? Yes , positive .

Next year ? We will see if Mercedes can catch it up during the winter stop .
Probably yes . That's what Mercedes always showed to come even stronger out of the winter stop .
I heard the '21 Merc aerodynamics are the best ever .

The "two" MAX fanboys ? Negative mate !
We are with hundreds of millions ... And more will come !
