Mercedes MGP W02 - slotted front wing 08 May 2011

For the next round in Spain there will be a lot of changes on the Mercedes, with a new cooling system and exhausts. In Istanbul, however, they have again been taking advantage of this front wing, as used in China, with a slot in the main plane (highlighted in yellow). Together with a different aero and mechanical set-up, this has significantly improved the handling of the car.
