The perfect Formula 1 car from 2016

Mercedes swept all before it again in 2016, but it was not the perfect car - take some bits from rival teams and you'd have quite the potent racer...

There's no doubt the best overall package of the 2016 Formula 1 season was the Mercedes W07 Hybrid. The car allowed Mercedes to complete a hat-trick of drivers' and constructors' titles, as world champion Nico Rosberg and team-mate Lewis Hamilton won 19 of the 21 grands prix between them.

However, being the best overall doesn't necessarily mean being the best in every aspect. Often, there were areas in which rival teams had the best solution.
