Launched with little fanfare but it looks like they have incorporated an idea from Ferrari and adapted an 1987 Benetton chassis concept of a T chassis to improve low speed performance.

All explained in detail in this link. https://www.formula1.com/en/latest/article.how-a-ferrari-like-tweak-could-help-mercedes-go-even-faster-in-2020.hEp1uLgPjM9NWEGAvtEnF.html

For me one of the best liveries, little changed from last year, it didn't need changing.

I like it too but their 2017-18 liveries were nicer for me.

It's a strong livery, classy and refined. The addition of red works well I think.

I never really thought much about the livery before but when I saw last year's livery I just took to it.

The red is a nice touch.. Is the black'ed out rear section a test livery? I prefer it to be honest.

Scarbs seems to think the new car has a lot of potential.

Thanks, interesting, I'll have to look to see if there are other analysis like that on RB, Ferrari etc. Bold prediction to call them favourites.

Well considering they've won the last 6 titles, maybe not? :)

Yes, I get that I was just saying that judging a new car on a visual inspection, however good an analyst, is a bit of a leap.
