What's new on Mercedes' 2021 F1 car - and what it's keeping secret

Mercedes has launched the car everyone will be aiming at (or getting beaten by...) in 2021, the W12. The team revealed plenty about the new car at its launch - including a revised livery - but it was also up front about what it's trying to keep secret until the car appears in public when testing begins. In this video Edd Straw takes a closer look at the new bits we saw, and a few that we didn't.

    Cant wait for 2022 and see some real racing again. Mercedes just ruined the sport basically. Although they have every right too ofcourse and you cant really blame them. Its just very disapointing to see one car so far ahead. The titles dont really have much to do with racing anymore.

    *ONE last push for Mercedes.* Once an "unbeatable record" is reached (8 in a row), Mercedes leaves F1 as a constructor. Staying on as an PU supplier, imo.

    reversing the pick-ups for the rear suspension allows for even longer wheel base, in pursuit of the Mercedes principles of previous models. That gives more performance (instability of rear) which suits Hamilton's handling capabilities!

    In a nutshell rinse and repeat - another season with the end result know before it even starts... and it will be even worse for 2022 simply because Merc had vastly more "free" resources to deploy to tackle new rules due to massive advantage they already enjoy. I dont even want go into completely immoral, in the current climate, LH's contract "negotiations" - there is no end to greed with some ppl. He should have taken 50% pay cut!

No to black paint job, hello naked carbon fiber or if you must have paint, just one coat so you can still see the fiber weave. Black is cool & that car looks mean, in a subtle way.

      Then, I think the “Green Mercedes” at Aston Martin and customer team McLaren have a genuine advantage to the rest of the grid (excluding Mercedes themselves) because they’re powered by Merc PU. Should be interesting to see what that does to the upper midfield. Vettel could be trying to make it to a few podiums this year. Another big question mark is what Ferrari will be like this year?
