Mercedes MGP-W01 - revised rear bodywork 04 April 2010

Here you can see how Mercedes have evolved the bodywork around the MGP-W01's exhausts. In Melbourne (see inset) there was an additional gill linked to the exhaust opening (highlighted in blue), which respected the single-opening rule. In Sepang they have modified the bodywork (see main drawing) to create a wider opening around the exhaust to aid cooling. The team have also opened two small windows at the point where the bodywork meets the car's floor (highlighted in blue).
