Mercedes F1 W04 - integrated thermic tyre sensor 30 June 2013

On the upper flap of the F1 W04's front wing at Silverstone, Mercedes have integrated a thermic sensor (red arrow) to monitor the car's tyres for the entirety of the weekend. Previously, the device was simply attached to the car with cables during the practice sessions before the team removed it for qualifying and the race.
