I think we will see Vettel return to form a bit, but we will see. Not to take anything from him, but the Pink-W10 seems to be fairly "easy" to drive and with his experience, I am expecting him to have a solid season.

Video is private, but, Alpine might just be one of, if not the best, looking cars on the grid for '21.

This. It will be completely necessary at that point and will definitely tarnish 2 of his 4 WDCs even more.

Just in that the launch Merc is not fitted with the '21 race floor just a show piece.
Both Merc and RB are coy about giving away any secrets pertaining to aero until later in the month.

Yes. Only the livery is legit.

In B4:
-FIA is letting them cheat.
-They have secret US DOD technology from the F22's secret successor.
-They are using ionic propulsion drive with inertial dampening and micro transporters to move the car forward without anyone knowing.

With all the focus on Mercedes' body work, and the bulge you can see at the rear showing how much they are pushing the limit....

Seems like Aston Martin has bigger bulges, you know what they say about bigger bulges....

AMR21 is the new hotness. Can't wait to see it daylight.

Who knew a dab of pink on green would look so good.

Why they chose green.. that was Jaguar's colour but I guess it's keeping with the Brit BRG theme tradition. Just saying it's an unlucky colour for some and on top of that Seb may clash with what wants and what he's given with headmaster Stroll my friend as he's going to be seen as a mentor for Lance.

*Green actually originated from Ireland in 1902 in the Gordon Bennett race where English Napier cars were painted green as a mark of respect for the Irish shamrock as racing was banned in England at the time.

The FW43B is unreal! I am very surprised it looks so different. I think I love it, but I also might hate it. I am not sure yet.
