Mercedes F1 W05 - new front wing 17 March 2014

Mercedes introduced a new front wing (bottom) in Australia, but ultimately chose not to use it in the race. The biggest visible difference is the single vertical fin (1) in place of a twisted upper flap (2). The second vertical fin has lost its L-shape (3) and the new endplate (5) no longer has two separate elements (4). The flat floor (6) is also slightly different, as is the main profile (now with a single slot) and the flaps (three elements).
