Mercedes simply did a better job than everyone else. Good on them and shame on everyone else. You don't punish the valedictorian of the class because there are 5 slapdicks who can't learn their schoolwork.

*So just all because VW didn't want to continue...with what engine the V8? FIA changed it in a flash to V6 hybrid.How convenient.
Then how come Lauda told Montemezollo in confidence that Merc were ALREADY WORKING on a hybrid V6 way back in 2007 as I have already written.

Sir 7ewis, 7X FIA Formula One World Championship, World Driving Champion. 95 Wins. 98 Pole Positions. 53 Fastest Laps. Rain Master.
Remember, 3 Pole Positions, 10 Wins and 10 Fastest Laps after 5 years in a top team are mediocre results. You know who you are.
