NEWS: Mercedes GP F1

C3167 '2011 Schumacher'

Scalextric have just released some stunning photos of the highly anticipated 2011 Petronas Mercedes GP F1.  Driven by Michael Schumacher, the striking Petronas Mercedes F1 in silver is bound to be very popular with the F1 crowd, I know I'm getting one!

This from Paddock Talk: 'The new silver and green livery creates a true marriage between the heritage of the Silver Arrows and the team’s title partner PETRONAS. The legacy of the Silver Arrows goes back to the 1934 Eifel Race when, on the evening before the event, the white paint was sanded off the Mercedes W25 race car to fulfil weight regulations (750kg formula) and the silver colour of the aluminium surface of the car appeared. This season, with the return of the Silver Arrows, the MGP W01 will shine in silver combined with a flow of iridescent silver shading. On the nose and on other parts of the car traces of black carbon fibre visible are visible – a reminder of the first Silver Arrow of 1934.'
