Mercedes GP MGP W01 - longer wheelbase 08 May 2010

Mercedes have lengthened the wheelbase of the MGP W01 by approximately five centimetres. They have done this by angling the suspension's front wishbones differently. They have also moved the front wing forward, thus keeping the same gap between wing and tyre as required by the regulations. This modification has altered the car's weight distribution, which should help reduce the chronic understeer seen during the opening four races.
