The new Mercedes W15 features a novel built-in adjustment of its front suspension. A big panel on the chassis around where the rearward upper wishbone attaches is the giveaway that the amount of anti-dive in the suspension geometry can be changed quite radically.

This was confirmed on the last day of pre-season testing when the team ran with that wishbone in a much lower position, greatly increasing its anti-dive. It was back in the conventional position for the race weekend in Bahrain, but even that position still gives the suspension a significant angle of anti-dive.
