Mercedes F1 W05 Hybrid - new turning vanes

22 Nov 2014

In qualifying and the race in Abu Dhabi, both Mercedes are using the new turning vanes previously tested only on Friday in Brazil.

They differ from the previous design (inset) in that they are made up of four elements instead of three. They complete the complex aero package introduced by the team in Japan which has given them a lap time improvement of three- to four-tenths of a second.
