Mercedes F1 W06 Hybrid - cut rear wing

18 Apr 2015

As they did at the last round in China, Mercedes are using this rear wing for the Bahrain International Circuit in Sakhir.

The flap’s chord is cut near to the endplate (red arrow). Also as in China, Mercedes have no monkey seat on the car here, in order to help achieve a better top speed - quite important at this track.
