Mercedes F1 W06 Hybrid - Monaco monkey seat

23 May 2015

For this season’s Monaco race, in order to achieve more downforce, Mercedes - like most teams - have increased the size of the monkey seat rear wing.

The world champions have basically adopted the double-decked design seen on their car in Singapore last year (inset). The only big difference in this area now is the use of a single-pillar wing support - last year’s F1 W05 had a double-pillar design.
