Since Mercedes-Benz bought-out world championship winning team Brawn last year they haven’t been having too much luck. It really was a fall from grace as the once winning team struggled for podiums under the German manufacturers name. 7 time world champion Michael Schumacher fail to impress though that could be attributed to many factors including the drastic changes to the cars since he left the sport. This year will be the true decider is he or even the team is worthy of championship glory once more.
The MGP W02 is Mercedes second works built car and with major design changes to the front wing and nose they hope it will be much more successful. The silver arrow is to benefit from an early development start mid-season last year as it was clear the team could not conquer 2010.
