Mercedes F1 W05 Hybrid - suspension updates 08 June 2014

On top of their Montreal-specific upgrades, Mercedes introduced a couple of small changes to the front suspension?s lower front wishbone and the rear section of the front brake ducts. The new fins and turning vanes help to manage the airflow coming around the inside of the front tyre. Getting this airflow to connect with the low-pressure area behind the front tyre will reduce the overall drag of the car, and also help the front wing to perform more efficiently.
