Mercedes MGP W02 - revised exhausts & diffuser 09 July 2011

All weekend at Silverstone, Mercedes have been using this new, longer exhaust design (similar to that on the Red Bull, McLaren, Ferrari and others), which was seen but never used at the last round in Valencia. It sees the team move away from the configuration they had been using since pre-season testing, with the exhaust exits further forward, in the middle of the sidepod. Also totally new is the rear diffuser, a large section of which is now protected by heat-resistant material in light of the revised exhaust layout.
