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...

Frost TV : I definitely need this for 2018 vs 2019 Merc don't let me down!

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

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. ;)

Fear resides within us. : Nothing like a silver arrow!

teamchancery : waiting on ferrari to release their vid....lol.I giveMerc credit for being more inclusive if the Allison hasnt shown us the good stuff.

Nick Kapetanias : Here after the W10 launch and indeed Merc made the halo look better.

1988Carlsberg : I feel as we have now finished the 2018 season, it feels like Hamilton and Mercedes as a Team are unbeatable over the course of a season.

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.

Charlie Carr : Love videos like this, thanks guys!

ogzasu nurkan : Great Video, Thank you Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport.

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....

Ryan Dsouza : They make a whole new different car every year Wow I thought they just add and remove parts to meet regulations

yusaini rdj : Now this is confidence! Not a boring daily test updates ala Caterham's Mike Gascoyne being uttered by the hopeless Mclaren team.

Kostas Lal : Hey, just decided to watch 2017 season in replay. Halo is 1/3 of the screen..

96 : Balance Power Driver Safety Still Winning the Cup or Not? Hope 2019 Silver AMG, Red Ferrari , Blue Blue , One more Black SuperFormula Join The Tournament

TRDTOYGP : Gotta love the work and effort put into these remarkable cars, wining all the way MERC keep it up

/Høwłıtə/ /JackTheEmerald/ : Mercedes: What is different from the 2017 car to the 2018 car Me: 1- Halo in 2- Shark Fin out 3- T wing out 4- The middle of the rear wing is silver

Sun NY : Great video..

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

SneakerTifosi : So to surmise, the 2017 is the last great looking F1 car

Steven Harris : Wow. This video is literally crying out for the other teams to up their game. Mercedes know that they need better competition to invigorate the sport.

m1st : I'm not really a Mercedes fan, but that car is easily the sexiest on track.

Noor Azhar : I am a ferrari fan to be honest...but mercedes car is beautiful and most importantly...very very strong..you simply cannot deny that merc has a superb car

Buzz Killington : great video, amazing access by F1 standards as always from Mercedes top of the class.

T S Hariharan : A fair warning as subtle as they come

Baz : Fantastic video. What a natural James is in front of the camera, could listen to him talking technical all day. Can't wait to see this car in qualy & race trim.

ΓΕΩΡΓΙΟΣ : You did not disclose some numbers for us though: Horsepower, torque and weight (with driver and a full tank of fuel)

Shawn Mims : The most ironic thing about the Halo is that it WOULD NOT have stopped that spring from hitting Massa in the helmet. As far as I remember the hit was off center. The Halo won't last. Plexi windshield is the way to go

I Q : Mercedes Domination Part 2: This time, she’s fatter
