    According to Grandprix.com/AMuS, Mercedes use/used their joker after Monza.

    “–it was on the long straights at Monza last weekend that Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg used eighth gear for the very first time.

    “It (eighth gear) was too long for all the other circuits,” admitted designer Aldo Costa.”

    The new gearing in the Mercedes from Singapore on. Their new 8th is shorter than their old 7th. 1st is missing from the new set.
    Their gears are not that different anymore from, say, Williams or Red Bull.

    And the new overall picture:
