Off the top of your head what is the resonant speed?
Any further info on this one mate?
I've just been watching Rosberg's lap in qualifying at Valencia and he accelerates out of the slower corners in second gear at 10,000rpm at several points around the track (he's down to 8000rpm at some apexes when he's not on full throttle), so it doesn't look like Mercedes are too worried about low revs...?
