Radical design, with a cranked nose blending into Red Bullesque channels. The side podshave a similar profile to those seen on the Brawn last year with the diffuser appearing to be a wider/taller evolution of the 2009 design.

Well, this might as well be the year for Mercedes GP Petronas Formula One team as Michael Schumacher will be one of their best drivers. Isn’t it just exciting to know that he is back now. I was kinda hoping that he’d return to Ferrari but since he is a great driver, he’d get through with Mercedes.
