Wish I had a spare $400M+ to spend on a year of racing the Prancing Horse team.

The amount of engineering behind one of those cars is beyond mind blowing. I wish I'd have the pleasure of piloting something even half as good as this car. It'd likely still be life altering.

Hopefully changing from pull rod to push rod suspension better suits the driving of Kimi and Vettel

Nice looking car, I think. The livery has so many lines and is so busy looking that it's hard to tell.

Paddy Lowe (MB Technical Director) talks about when he joined Williams in the 80's there were 10-20 engineers. Today MB has ~400 engineers in their F1 program.

Always wondered why Ferrari stuck to the front pullrod suspension. Made for a crazy angle of actuation, not sure if the torsion bell cranks were mounted laterally or vertically. Slight advantage with slimmer rods than pushrod but lack of rebound for low downforce environment is a compromise for mechanical grip.

The Scuderia needs to come up with more dynamic names IMO. Somehow "SF16-H" doesn't get me excited
