Jun.24 (GMM) Mercedes is still working on its current car but has started to design the W01’s successor, team boss Ross Brawn has revealed.
Michael Schumacher, who is 75 points behind the championship leader Lewis Hamilton, said in Canada that his attention is now turning to 2011.
But while not denying that the next Mercedes car is now on the drawing boards at Brackley, Brawn said the team is not giving up on 2010.
“I think everybody is looking at their cars for 2011,” the Briton is quoted by France’s Auto Hebdo.
“But we still have various things to put on the W01 in the coming races. We are not dropping this car, that’s for sure,” added Brawn.
