How risky and realistic is it for Mercedes to try something radical to keep the gap to Ferrari in 2016?

The word 'radical' is used a bit randomly, normally by people who don't actually know what they are talking about.
Within the current rules, it is quite difficult to be 'radical' other than getting carried away with suspension layout or gearbox layout. As long as what you come up with meets all its own basic specification requirements and gives you something else that will improve your laptime - such as finding 10 per cent more downforce - then you have to take that risk and go with it.
