The real challenger has come. Mercedes has launch his new W08 for the 2017 season with Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas a few minutes ago. Without the shark fin and with an aggressive aerodynamic, the silver arrow will face the new era of Formula 1 with their new piece of art.
Without a shark fin but with a lot of small details, the silver arrow remind us the old 2009 Brawn GP: simple from the outside, and an awesome piece of art if you look closely. Suspensions, side wings, bargeboards… all those small details will be checked for the rest of teams.
Lewis Hamilton want to recover from his bad 2016 season with new colors, with a helmet designed on a contest that he made on his Instagram while Valtteri Bottas will try to beat his teammate on his first (and probably only) year in Mercedes.
Tomorrow it’s time for the Ferrari and McLaren, another two teams that we’re expecting to see a lot of things for this new season. Stay tuned for more updates.
