Mercedes something to hide about new car super-nose



(originally published this article) Last week Schumacher in the pits in Barcelona, starting an unusual drama. The car rolled toward the garage, and when it stops, there are twelve mechanics of Michael Schumacher bodyguards. They protect the new F1 car like a superstar.

Photographers get a companion that arises from the lens as if by accident, when someone pulls out the camera. The front and rear covers are now on the car. A mechanic holding the hand through an opening in the nose. No man can get closer than a few meters.

The engineers have devised a fiendishly complicated system. Schumacher’s car was basically a hollow nose. Once the drivers are asked to be quiet. Absolute ban on speaking. Nico Rosberg (26) says: “What’s that?” Michael Schumacher even joking, because the front looks a bit like a duck bill. “Our nose is just plain quack, quack”

Schumacher joke documented in a good mood at Mercedes. The mood in the squad is getting better day by day. The trick seems to work – finally!

Schumi’s mastermind Ross Brawn (seven world titles with Benetton and Ferrari) had in the past two years, enough ideas. Just does not work properly. The car from last year was too short, had cooling problems and a lot of excessive tire wear.

The trick was super, especially the World Champion Vettel of Red Bull Mercedes super-exhaust copy and steal. Now to the silver arrows again be the ones who have to look out for. Mercedes boss Norbert Haug. “We’ve got ideas on the cars which are not seen immediately,” because a mechanic always stands in front …

Nevertheless, the competition is already spying. At McLaren it is believed that the car with the hollow nose up to 8 km / h faster on the straights. Nico Rosberg tested the Mercedes on Friday dizzying 139 laps – almost two complete races in one day.

When he got out he had loads of fun. Maybe Rosberg was still pumped full of adrenaline, maybe he can even play poker just simply very bad. In any case, Rosberg really enthused by the new car: “We have taken a giant step, the base of the car is much, much better.

Everything is hand and foot, the reliability is great. Melbourne can come “And then Rosberg went on:”.. We want to win”
