Mercedes F1 W07
After back-to-back seasons of dominance, testing has gone ominously well. So there’s no reason to look past the Silver Arrows for title-favourite status
Since the new power units were introduced at the start of the 2014 season, Mercedes has been the dominant force, winning 32 of 38 grands prix. It looks like we could see that level of performance again this year, judging by what has happened in testing, with the car looking quick and completing a vast number of miles straight out of the box. The Mercedes also features some good detail work to find small aerodynamic improvements and to ensure that the best car of the past two years can carry that form into the 2016 season.
It should not come as a surprise if, as expected, Mercedes is still on top.
