Hasn't the team already announced they've shifted focus to next year's car? That would explain why MS isn't that bothered, I share the sentiment. It's all a wasted effort anyway, from the perspective of the team I'd rather they did just enough to not lose ground, and instead focussed their energies on delivering the class package that is to be the W03.
Ross Brawn Q&A - Mercedes still targeting P3http://www.formula1....11/6/12203.html
Q: You have been given plenty of advice lately to abandon the 2011 season. You don’t appear to be a person to abandon anything, least of all a Formula One season, so what are you going to do with 2011?
RB: I really don’t know where all this talk came from. Naturally we are working on next year’s car - but so is everybody. And in our case it is not one hundred percent next year and zero percent this year because the rules don’t change that dramatically next year, so what you learn this year is also relevant for next year. We are in fact working very hard on this year’s car and over the next few races there will be some new things that we want to try that will be relevant for this year and next year. So no way have we stopped with this year’s car because if you are doing a new car it doesn’t mean that it is a faster car. And when we do the new car we will introduce the improvements that we find now into next year’s car.
