No any big surprises in 2012 Mercedes W03 – Norbert Haug

Published

on

Mercedes-Benz motorsport president Norbert Haug told Autosport that he don’t think that your eye will be caught by any big surprises when you see the car during the unveiling. Mercedes AMG features a stepped nose and Haug claim that the priority has been to come up with a well-packaged car rather than pursing any eye-catching new concepts.

“I don’t think that your eye will be caught by any big surprises when you see the car during the unveiling,” Haug told said. “But I certainly hope that we have some clever solutions and we have some good ideas incorporated on the car. It’s a good base to work from and certainly we will not turn the world upside down, but we do need to make a good step [with this car].”

“I wouldn’t say that it’s a new start,” said Haug. “This car is the product of what we have learned in the last two years.

“We had three podium finishes in the first year, but last year we did not head in the right direction. We had some highs, like the Chinese Grand Prix when the track was front-tyre limited and the performance was a little better. But over the course of the year it wasn’t good enough.

“To be a regular contender with Red Bull, Ferrari and McLaren is quite a task. We need to learn, we need to develop our team in that direction and I’m sure that we can do that.”

2012 Mercedes AMG W03 will launch at Barcelona on Tuesday morning in advance of the start of the second pre-season F 1 test.
