Now the Formula One competition of Mercedes can almost only wait and hope. The two final test days will not be enough for the rivals who may only be chasing after them. And then the cars will be ready for the trip to Australia.
1,2 seconds later Nico Rosberg’s advance on Friday at the tryouts on Valtteri Bottas in Williams –also with Mercedes power. Sebastian Vettel was back in the new Ferrari about two and a half seconds. Even the official Formula One homepage has already written from the threatening warning shot by Rosberg and Mercedes.
“It is clear: if you want to win, you have to beat Mercedes,” stressed four-time world champion Vettel three weeks before the start of the season in Melbourne. “If you want to win, you have to beat Mercedes.” Mercedes remains the gauge for everyone, continues,”Bottas said in”speedweek.com”. Even the Finnish, whose Williams is driven by Mercedes-Power and whose teammate Felipe Massa was the fastest to start the last test phase, admitted: “I was just a little surprised by the speed of the Mercedes”
Four test days in Jerez, four test days in Barcelona and once again one on the Circuit de Catalunya- on the tenth day of the total twelve test layers was the time for Mercedes to get the soft tires: The silver arrow got the fast pneumonia. And so the Mercedes men met the rivals sensitively. The 4655-kilometre Grand Prix course, which was valid for the entire season, was no faster than the previous test days. Rosberg remained even around two and a half seconds below the pole-time of teammate and world champion Lewis Hamilton at the Spanish Grand Prix last May.
What the pursuers, who had just left three races by Daniel Ricciardo in the Red Bull, Rosberg’s conclusion was probably even more frightening after his last test day. The 29-year-old born Wiesbaden initially complained about problems with the setup. Lots of overpriced, restless rear, no traction. In the end, however, he was satisfied with his rounds. One is confident to have a good car and he starts to feel comfortable in it.
This Sunday Rosberg will continue his wellness course. Then it’s getting ready for the trip to Australia. But rest does not apply to Mercedes either. They want to improve themselves further, Rosberg announced: “That’s why we stick our heads together and keep working.” That’s what the pursuers have to do.NieR: AutomataThe Umbrella AcademySSSS.DYNAZENONBEASTARS
