Yes, proof indeed, instead of spreading baseless rumours.
Their engineers are brilliant and deserve credit.
The team at the point was one of only 2, completely owned and backed by the manufacturer, that makes a huge difference. As mentioned above, the approach to design was different and unorthodox. Educate yourself:

The engine crew came up with an innovative plan: putting the turbo compressor at one end of the engine and the turbine at the other, rather than together.

Knowing of this plan, the car designers then knew the gearbox could be repositioned to improve balance, and the coolers could be smaller to enable tighter bodywork. The Mercedes customer teams Williams and Force India received the same engine, but not before they had already committed to a car design which could not fully exploit it
