ksells : James Allison is awesome, seems a really nice guy.

Spud Byrne : I could listen to James Allison all day. The man is so well spoken, as well as being a bit of a genius. 👍🏻

Psyclone The Seahawk : Congratulations on your 5th straight manufacturers title!

esteban muñeton : Obviously the Halo looks bad, but as long as it protects driver´s head from flying objects... I hope this year there could be more battles, Mercedes looks like it´s gonna keep winning most of the races. We will find out on the first races this season...

Formula 1Fan : James put that in to real terms for all of us but while I appreciate the work and the fact that this keeps the team at the front giving Lewis the best chance to bring home the championship wins, the Halo is hideous and I think there will be accidents caused by it. I watched the 2 video's with the drivers wearing camera glasses and I saw for a fact that a person leading the driver out vanished as he turned side on to the car and reappeared as he gave the final signal to go I also saw the view going down the pit lane and if someone was crossing the path of the car yes the driver would see them but if they were standing in that blind spot................Ambulance needed.

De Wae : Damn, Jame's Allison is such a good natural presenter on camera

Christian Augustin : 3 dislikes by Ferrari, Redbull and Vettel.

T R : Please don't win

Mbappe Mbappe : James is like a new born baby since hes at Mercedes. I am happy to see him enjoying his role at Mercedes.

Kashmir : Best F1 team with the best media department, I love it, keep it up

Sean Brady : come on mercades win the championship

KÖNIG SCHUMACHER : The W09 would be much more better without halo...😌 but this are the rules in this strange F1..but anyway good luck Mercedes! 😜💪

Robbert Knight : Ferrari be like 👀👂👀👂👀👂

Arnav Badgel : The best F1 team ! Forever!!

Infidel Gastro : The halo is fine. I'm not hating on it like most people do. In fact I think it doesn't looks bad at all but people are resistant to change. In fact there are only two guarantees in life, death and change, so get used to the latter.

AYANDA VILAKAZI : Why did Lewis not get No. 1 on his car?

Mike Cobweb : Mercedes for 5th title💪🏻💪🏻

tristan henning : Really like James Allison's discussion of the two cars

loose goose : Thank you ! It's so rare to see a team so proud of thier car and showing it off in some close up details. It looks like a lovely thing !

diketso ndlovu : I think I am the only one that likes the halo

2Phast4Rocket : Mr Allison doesn't reveal any secret here. All the teams have improved their cars over the break. The secrets are in the suspension gears, the new PU, the software, and everything that isn't covered by the bodywork.  Of course, we love to have Mr Allison tell us about them too. ;)

Michael Leuff : Seriously, no one thought to put sponsor logo on the halo? Your marketing guy should be fired.

Nathan Constable : Those bargeboards... 😱👌

My Opinion Counts : Lewis Hamilton World Champion 2018 🎉🎊🙌 Congratulation

Crig S : Did you really care this much about everyone saying that both cars look exactly the same?

Caio Trevisan : And after 3 races, 0 victories!

Igilinjo : I hate the Halo! that does not belong there...

Randy Marsh : 2018 the year F1 died they banned grid girls for political correctness and to put the final nail in the coffin they brought in the halo.

Cooper Ondersma : I haven't been watching F1 long, but personally, I don't hate the halo. I think it helps mesh the two parts of the car together, as opposed to a low cockpit, then a really high air intake, I think it makes the silhouette of the car flow better.

walt350z : Thanks for the awesome vid merc. Hopefully showing the car early due to its strength in the upcoming season

AtlanticiaCom JR : I love the way you open up to the world offering at least a little transparency. I love the technology you've got, and it's a great team. Good luck and well done for the work so far! Glad to see some of this trickling towards a road car too....
