    This is why they are saying that Red Bull will do well out of these changes

    the changes have the potential to make the racing less exciting. they went away from aero dependent designs due to the inability of cars to follow another car closely. the cars were quick in clean air but suffered badly behind another car, even as far back as 100's of metres. Now its like they are going a full circle. hopefully the extra grip will negate some of it.

    With Newey fully back on board with Redbull you wouldn't bet against them coming up with a fast car. Honda (mclaren) are also rumoured to have a pretty decent package. the powertrain is staying pretty much the same i believe so Merc will be up there. Just hope Ferrari can come up with something special but I'm not holding my breath.

    The big issue is that the Mercs have about 50hp more than the rest of the field, even the other Merc powered cars, more hp means you can run more wing and get more downforce and the same speed. Or it simply helps to push thos 405 wide tyres through the air.

    In racing Hp always makes a difference.

    I believed engine plants could also be updated in this review?

    Add 2-4 cylinders and give us back some decent noise?

    the number of cylinders don't worry me as much as the theatre
    Noise has improved since this current lot of engine plants arrived
