Mercedes AMG F1 W03

A place to discuss the characteristics of the cars in Formula One, both current as well as historical. Laptimes, driver worshipping and team chatter does not belong here.

how's the driver going to open the DRS?
Same as last year...by pressing a button :lol: :lol:
No seriously...MGP does not have the same type of solution as other teams when it comes to DRS. They dont lift the upper panel of the rear wing in the middle (so to speak) like other teams do. the mechanism sits on the side panel (vertical pannels) of the wing if i am not mistaken

doesn't that looks like a mini monkey seat?

hate to say this, but it will be a very devastating season if they don't win any gp this year by the look of the car.

And as speculated, Mercedes are be trying to blow the rear suspension.
According to an online source, the final exhaust configuration may not be tested this week, but at the next test. This is said to be the exhaust that flies closest to being illegal.

Dolfin fins under the nose are a bit different; their lower outer edges are shaped like those of the fw endplates

how does that work?

don't you the exhaust position is too far from the rear suspension?

I believe he is indicating that we might see the exhaust exits moved to just before or in between the rear wishbones (see my post earlier)

Not quite sure. But their is heat shielding surrounding the suspension.

That's where the DRS hydraulic actuators are.
