    There are already lots of pictures around. Seems just a W07 adapted to the 2017 rules, how odd

    I'm sure it will probably win everything again - but it's not very inspiring. It looks so... same same. I'm so meh I'm glad it launched early and I didn't have to wait up for this (in Australia). Blahhhh

    Alot of us are talkin about how the cars look, surely we know that how it looks doesnt mean a thing right? We will see Saturday 6pm in Melbourne which REALLY looks the best.

    F1 cars definitely look better without the shark fin.

    What's with the Mercedes turning laps though? I thought they can't test till Barcelona.

    It's a "filming" day, so specific and supposedly non-representative tyres, driving around behind a 4WD being filmed. I guess they get to determine that it fires up and runs, but it isn't supposed to be representative of "testing"

    These guys are already out of the gate, if you can get a couple of laps in, why not and get some data to boot........

    Don't want to rain on your parade, but there are rumours flying around that Merc will test the sharkfin

    When it comes to testing, rules dictate you CANNOT test the car as a WHOLE. HOWEVER, you can test certain components of the car separately....on "mule" cars. All of them do this practice during the winter off-season.

    Rules also say you can do "filming days". That's exactly what Mercedes and Sauber did (and Williams is rumored to be doing, too)

    The Mercedes' full name is... Mercedes AMG F1 W08 EQ Power +
    Maybe we should call ours the Scuderia Ferrari SF-70 Hybrid Super Power, that'll teach them a lesson!
