, Executive technical Director «If we talk about the technical and racing, comes a very interesting time. We are introducing technologies, new not only for , but for the whole of the mobile world. The main motive - improving the efficiency, and the fact that we will use in racing hybrid systems and only 100 kg of fuel to get from to finish, is eloquent imony to the technological capabilities of .

But also we demonstrate technologies that can develop -Benz, competing with the other s - it is also about the chassis, and the new power pack. The whole did a great job doing this project.
