Manor MRT05 Mercedes

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.

2016 or 2017 rear bulkhead ? or both?
Huge recess in the bulkhead for the Merc oil tank, compressor, air ducts (and battery at the bottom* ?) (and/or a Merc like intercooler at the bottom?)

*Or is the battery fully eclosed in another dedicated recess not visible from this view angle?

Anybody notice a certain similarity with the Ferrari F14-T, especially around the front wing and sidepod turning vanes?Image

And there is a similarity regarding the number of wheels

Many cars have similar deflectors to those...
The FW cascades are closer to the 2014 Caterham

I'd say the one on the left is from 2016, the right is the 2017 car. The one on the right has a big recess on the side and the cockpit head protection seems slightly different. Compare with this pic of the 2016 car:

Wouldn't it be better to make a separate thread for the 2017 car?

I hadn't noticed there's were posts in here - 2017 speculation thread is here: http://www.f1technical.net/forum/viewto ... 12&t=25433

Seems more appropriate (speculating what they might have turned up with if they had survived rather than what they will turn up with)
