First blood to RB even before start

The anomaly on the W11 pointed out by the sharp tech wizards at RB concerning the Mercs rear scoop/suspension arm may be significant.The rear arm itself is similar to RB's up and over one. The Merc could be compromised changing that configuration in view of the impact of regs with so little time to go.

Maybe they were a bit too relaxed with 6 championships in a row under the belt; Difficult to imagine being who they are but miscalculations can happen even to the top teams,easy to do coming into '20 riding on the success wave.

Eh, if they had the sense to get DAS approved ahead of time, I think they have backup arms for to replace the now illegal ones.

I would think so too, can't imagine them falling back on an arm and a prayer as opposed to a wing lol. It is being changed and how it will affect the set up remains to be seen.
