Mercedes F1 W05 - Australia aero package 16 March 2014

Despite the fact that Mercedes led pre-season testing, the team introduced a new aero package between the last Bahrain session and Melbourne. Highlighted in this drawing are the aero updates on the central section of the car (previous solutions inset), with modified turning vanes under the chassis (two arrows to the right), a totally new horizontal fin attached to a laser sensor to measure ride height (middle arrow), and modified vertical turning vanes beside the sidepods with a split section on top and a bridge connection (left arrow).
