Merc 'not holding back' on 2010 car Mercedes GP insist they haven't written off the 2010 season and will continue to develop the MGP W01.
After winning the double last year, the Brackley-based team were again expected to challenge for both titles. However, they have failed to live up to those expectations and are already a long way off the pace after eight races.
There have been suggestions that the team are ready to halt upgrades to this year's car in order to speed up development on their 2011 challenger.
Team principal Ross Brawn, though, says the focus is still on "both at the moment".
"I think everybody is looking at next year's car now, all the teams, but we still have some pretty important things we want to do with this car over the next few races," he said.
"Then we will have to reflect on the position for the second half of the season. We are not holding back on this car, for sure."
