Mercedes Unveil the F1 W03

The new Mercedes "Silver Bullet" W03 in Barcelona

Hi Racers

Finally, we get to see what Mercedes have come up with and it looks the “silver bullet” we were expecting.

It features the new stepped nose, and it doesnt look too bad actually. The colour scheme & advertising does tend to lower its impact, which is always good.

W03 in action

Team Principle Ross Brawn had this to say about the W03

“The F1 W03 is a car that I believe, and hope, our team can be proud of, and which will deliver the on-track results that everybody has worked so hard to achieve,” Brawn said. “Notwithstanding the distinctive nose design, which is certainly an acquired taste, the F1 W03 is an elegant interpretation of the current regulations, and a clear step forward over its predecessor in terms of detail design and sophistication.

“Last year, we produced a very bold car and, although its more radical elements didn’t always deliver the results we had hoped for, the experience we gained has been invaluable to the design of the 2012 car. The F1 W03 is also a more integrated package, which reflects the ever-strengthening ties between our technical teams in Brackley and Brixworth, and demonstrates that our Silver Arrows works team is taking the next step forward in terms of on-track performance.”

Unfortunetly, I’m unable to source the Tech Spec’s for the W03 at this stage.

Not long until the start of the 2012 season now!!

Keep Racing,
