Mercedes F1 W06 Hybrid - revised front wing

12 Apr 2015

In China Mercedes have introduced a very extreme version of this front wing originally debuted last year on the F1 W05...

The main differences are in the shape of the section closest to the endplate, with a more square-edged arch. In total there are five elements just ahead of the front tyre, designed to better divert airflow towards the outside of the wheel and reduce drag. This section is easy to spot in its original, unpainted carbon colour. Also new on the F1 W06 in Shanghai is the rear wing, featuring cuts in the flap in the sections close to the endplates.
