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.

The specs weren't so massively out. You can make broad brush design, the boxes for where you can and can't have bodywork, mandatory items and so on.

If something is ambiguous you ask for clarification in a way that remains ambiguous.

I noticed the Manor logo on the front of the nose (the driver cooling bit) was lit up during FP1 :D

Yeah :D
Cool and odd at the same time. Saw FI had lights in the front suspension adjustment area too.

So, with the high speed Mexico coming up, will Manor be able to reproduce the strong showing as in Austria? Ok, its not the same type of circuit, but we know they are strong when PU comes to play

I would guess they will not be strong, because the thin air leads everyone to run max downforce configuration, and Manor is probably about the weakest in the field when it comes to bolting on maximum downforce.

Considering the R-vane and the inside tips of the flap, it's not a very recent one.

I'm hoping we get to see more photos of this car. The collector it's going to hasn't been forthcoming with photos in the past though.

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?
