You're missing my point, still..
I'm not debating whether one is quicker around a track or down a bloody drag strip. I'm saying that the Mercedes uses a load of power to be quick. It's really not that challenging to put a load of hp in a light car. Mercedes just haven't found the handling to match the power.
It's no challenge for BMW to recreate a BS and I don't think they should unless they can push the boundaries of what can be done in that class.
