The team decided to focus on further development of the car, instead of pushing onto the track February 1st with the vast majority of the field. They will be joining Red Bull and Virgin who will also be seeing the track for the first time at Jerez.
Also, Mercedes GP confirmed that they will be launching their car in Stuttgart at the Mercedes Museum on January 25th. We had already reported this, as it has been rumored for a while.
Still waiting to hear if Campos even exists. All we are hearing is crickets… chirping… incessantly.
