Mercedes Formula 1 Launches 2013 Silver Arrow

Bear with me; there is some tech news relevance here.

I’m a big fan of Lewis Hamilton’s driving, so I’ve been waiting patiently for this reveal all winter. It’s not the most beautiful car this season — that’d be Sauber’s — but I’m sure it’ll be quick.

Tech news? Check out that giant BlackBerry sponsorship on the side. But just because there’s a glowing press release and copious product placement, that doesn’t mean the drivers will be using the phones. And, indeed, Hamilton and Rosberg much prefer their iPhones.
