Mercedes MGP W02 - revised front wing 23 July 2011

Mercedes have introduced a new front wing at the German event. Similar in style to the one on Red Bull's RB7, the new front wing (see main drawing) features double upper-deck flaps (see red arrow) and is designed to improve the car's aerodynamic balance and corner entry. It has been used by both Michael Schumacher and Nico Rosberg at the Nurburgring. The old style front wing can be seen in the inset.
