Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport Launch the W08 from Silverstone, with a live on-line 360 spectacle was expected, albeit, slightly behind schedule. The live stream to Facebook did not happen at all.
The current Formula One world championship team have designed a very impressive chassis design with all the aero dynamic features you would expect to be a front runner again. There is no prominent sharks fin that has appeared on other F1 cars, including Renault and Force India.
Along with the new chassis, a Mercedes customer has claimed that an “unprecedented” step forward has been made with their 2017 engine. Things look very promising, again for the Mercedes team.
Toto Wolff – “Super intelligent group of people” – “I’m confident: – “A new era in innovation”.
Lewis Hamilton – “Proud to still be with this team” – “The detail on the car is amazing”.
Valteri Botas – To drive the W08 this afternoon.
