2012 Mercedes car capable for winning races – Brawn

Published

on

Mercedes GP team Principal Ross Brawn claim that new Mercedes AMG F1 car capable for winning races in this season. And he added that he have not seen anything that new car not able to win races.

Autosport reported – Asked if he felt the new W03 had the genes of a winning F1 car, Brawn replied: “I think you always believe that. You want a winning car and I have not seen anything that tells me it shouldn’t be.

“Sometimes you have a car and you struggle with it and you see things that you say are not working how we expected and wanted, but certainly there is nothing about this car that says we should not achieve our ambitions – and our ambitions are to do a lot better than we have done for the past two years.”

“It is difficult to judge because you don’t know what fuel other people are running,” Brawn said.

“When you see a car out there that starts a race stint then you have to assume that it starts on full fuel and the weights are representative and you will see an accurate model of what they are doing. Some of the race runs look good and some don’t look so good, and I suspect the cars will change again before we get to Melbourne.

“Some teams have gone for a design that is clearly still blowing the exhaust in the area of the rear tyre – that may have an effect when rear tyre degradation is critical because it is much more difficult to manage where the exhaust flow goes this year than it was last year. Last year it was quite precise, this year it is more general because you cannot have the exhaust pipes to blow through the diffuser. There will be some interesting twists and turns over the first few races.”
