March 21st, 2012
Mercedes team principal Ross Brawn believes his team’s approach of having multiple technical directors is already paying off – and thinks the benefits will only increase in the future. Although some rival outfits have poured scorn on the Mercedes approach – with the team having Bob Bell, Aldo Costa, Geoff Willis and Brawn all pushing on the technical side – the man in charge is delighted with the way things are panning out. “They are getting on very well, gloriously well,” explained Brawn
February 21st, 2012
Nico Rosberg believes it is now time for Mercedes to start delivering improvements on track this season. On the back of the restructuring that has taken place at the Brackley-based outfit since Mercedes-Benz took over, plus the recruitment of high-profile technical figures like Bob Bell, Geoff Willis and Aldo Costa, Rosberg thinks the time has come for the team to show it is heading in the right direction. “For me it is very clear that we need to start our progress on the upward trend now,” said Rosberg at Barcelona on Tuesday
February 21st, 2012
Ross Brawn believes Mercedes GP must move up the Formula 1 grid this year, following two consecutive seasons where it finished fourth in the standings. After officially unveiling its new W03 at Barcelona on Tuesday, Brawn said that the Brackley-based outfit has the ingredients it needs to deliver improved form on track – which means regularly fighting for podium finishes
February 21st, 2012
Mercedes became the last of the frontrunning Formula 1 teams to officially unveil its 2012 car, when it rolled out the W03 at Barcelona prior to the start of the second week of testing today. The new car has already shaken down the car at Silverstone last week, and conducted a private test at Catalunya on Sunday – which Mercedes was permitted to undertake because it had only been present for three of the four days of running at Jerez earlier this month. Mercedes chose to stick with its 2011 car for Jerez in order to gain data on this year’s Pirelli tyres, and was quickest on two of the days it was present – though it was running to full ’11 specification, including the no-longer-permitted exhaust-blown diffuser

January 2nd, 2012
Nico Rosberg does not believe that missing the first official Formula 1 test of 2012 will affect Mercedes’ competitiveness this season. The team announced recently that it would not take part in the Jerez test on February 7-10 in order to spend extra time developing its new W03 machine.
November 10th, 2011

October 12th, 2011
The Formula One Teams’ Association (FOTA) has the strength and unity to stay focused on the best course of action for the sport despite the growing tension over the Resource Restriction Agreement (RRA) – according to McLaren’s managing director Jonathan Neale. Speculation over both Red Bull’s spending on the way to its world championship successes, and the RRA implications of Mercedes’ recruitment of big-name technical figures Bob Bell, Aldo Costa and Geoff Willis, has led to concerns that the deal could collapse. Meetings between the teams are expected in Korea this weekend to try and resolve the issue before it becomes more serious.

The duo worked together at Ferrari during Brawn’s spell at the team.

February 22nd, 2011
HRT team boss Colin Kolles sees no reason why his squad cannot overhaul fellow 2010 newcomers Lotus and Virgin in the future, and believes its new F111 will bring up to date with contemporary Formula 1 design after its poor debut year. The 2010 HRT – which was originally created by Dallara before the relationship between the Italian constructor and the team broke down – was the slowest car in the field throughout last season.
January 25th, 2011
The Hispania Racing team is hoping to be able to run its new car in the final test of the pre-season in Bahrain, ahead of the start of the 2011 season. The team said on Tuesday that it will start winter testing with last year’s car, with the hope that it can have its new challenger ready for the Bahrain test on 3 March, ten days ahead of the start of the season there
January 7th, 2011
HRT boss Colin Kolles says he has every reason to feel confident that his team can deliver a step forward in performance in 2011, having overcome the odds in simply getting to the grid last year. Kolles was drafted in by the Spanish outfit on the eve of the 2010 campaign to help rescue its stalling preparations for the season. He ensured the team not only got itself ready for the first race in Bahrain but also that it completed the full schedule.

May 21st, 2010
HRT team principal Colin Kolles may not have had much to smile about in terms of pure results so far this season, but he insists he is relishing the challenge of trying to move the team forwards. The Romanian was drafted in shortly before the start of the season to try and help the former Campos Grand Prix outfit make the grid – after its failure to secure the necessary funding
April 2nd, 2010
Hispania Racing’s technical consultant Geoff Willis says he has been unimpressed with the design of the Spanish squad’s first Formula 1 car. The Cosworth-powered machine was designed for the Campos operation by Italian race car manufacturer Dallara, who was believed to have halted the project more than once due to financial problems from the Spanish outfit. Campos become Hispania after it was saved by a last-minute deal, showing up at the season-opening race in Bahrain without having run its car
