Mercedes GP MGP-W01 - modified rear wing 17 April 2010

Mercedes have introduced a simpler, and more experimental version of McLaren's current rear wing solution. Like on the Ferrari, there isn't an F-duct, and the air doesn't flow inside the engine cover fin. Two small openings (1) feed airflow through an aero channel to two slots on the back of the flap (2). The system has been tested by both drivers and is controlled by pressure sensors on both surfaces of the wing.
