Mercedes MGP W02 - revised front wing 27 August 2011

Mercedes have brought another evolution of the front wing they introduced in Hungary to Spa. As well as the additional upper flap, which was inspired by the Red Bull, there is now an additional vertical fin (large red arrow) to better direct airflow. The team have also modified the system used to adjust the flap's angle of incidence by moving it from its previous central position (where the new fin now is) to the side of the endplate (small red arrow).
