Rumored upgrades for the Mercedes GP car at Bahrain!

1. New front wing & nose
2. New floor
3. 4 Tier Diffuser

Mercedes team have already tested these new parts with the shakedown of the chassis for Bahrain at Rockingham Circuit UK!

If this is true, its going to be Battle Royal in Bahrain!

@f1fan, I did overlooked the word Mercedes for Mclaren! My bad.

This can only spice things up !
Mercedes and Schumacher are cleverly underpromising and planning to overdeliever .
It shouldnt be a surprise if they are right up there with Ferrari , Mclaren and RedBull .

The deadly twosome in the Mercedes GP is capable of lot more things.

Wow, this is getting interesting.

Yes bridgestone plan to quit and have announced it too.
Michelin were favourites to take up the contract but considering that the reason they quit was due to the single tyre supplier rule, i find it highly unlikely that they might come back.
Which leaves us to wonder who will take up the role

I heard that Firestone and pirelli are the bidding for the contract again no confirmation on this yet.

Note from Mod : Closing thread as the season has begun! Now, we'll have race specific threads for the 2010 season.
