The team has dominated F1 for the past 5 years and would be hoping that the new aerodynamic regulations don’t bring a halt to that domination.
Toto Wolff has taken the conservative route while talking about his team’s progress with respect to the car and how they have adjusted to the new regulations.
In the off season he had predicted that the new regulations could bring about a large shift in the pecking order on the grid, but a lot of F1 fans disregarded that as ‘sandbagging’ on Mercedes’ part.

With the car scheduled to be released in less than one week, the excitement is at an all time high for Mercedes fans.
In order to fuel that excitement and curb some of the anxiety, Mercedes have gone onto release an audio of the W10’s engine being fired up for the first time.
The roar is deafening and is a small teaser into what could be on offer during the 2019 F1 season.

Mercedes would be hoping that winter testing goes according to plan in a season where Hamilton has the chance of making it 6 world titles.
Bottas has a massive job on his hand, as he needs to ensure that he is in that Mercedes seat at the end of the 2019 season.
Ocon is breathing down his neck all the time and it promises to be a very entertaining season for the German team.
