If the other teams actually had good powertrains and kept up with MB, this year wouldn't be so drab to watch

Mercedes says they have new engine qualifying settings, nicknamed "party mode".

Quote:
Mercedes has targeted having the most powerful ‘party’ mode for Formula 1 qualifying this year, despite the need for engines to last longer.

F1’s manufacturers have spent the winter focusing on improved reliability in 2018 now that the number of engines each driver is allowed for the year has been reduced to three.

But while Ferrari and Renault are said to be satisfied that their longer life power units have hit the same performance levels as last year’s version, Mercedes says its ambition has been to hit new power peaks.

Could lead to reliability problems and grid penalties. Have they gone too far?

Expecting wet quali. A shame really, as we will have to wait a few more weeks to see the true pace of 2018 cars.

If they cock it up this season, they have no excuses to blame the PU supplier.

RIC handed a 3 place grid penalty for his Home Race for not slowing enough under red flag...
