The three Mercedes-engined teams have all gone for different approaches to cooling.Manjhi wrote:My god didn't notice that how much slim is that Ferrari.
What has happened to the Williams ? Did they miss understood the phrase "sand bagging" and are actually putting sand bags in the sidepods or the Mercs is not sharing tech details of the complete package with them
The Ferrari seems smoother then the Merc. And the the direction of ferrari looks a lot faster. On the last chicane you can see how much more the driver of the Mercs have to turn the wheel.radosav wrote:https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=JxzsWCc8l ... continue=5
just look at how the rb13 is the only one where the endplates curl upwards, what do you think the thought process behind this is?
Thanks Sevach for compiling this comparison of the rear bodywork opening...not sure if that's the right term.Sevach wrote: ↑Fri Mar 17, 2017 8:21 pmhttps://pbs.twimg.com/media/C65oKNAWkAEWNeU.jpg
I would say it's likely that STR was just evaluating their hot races package rather than needed extra cooling, but you never know...GTO99 wrote: ↑Sun Mar 19, 2017 9:01 am

Am quite surprised to see how tiny in area the Mercedes opening is compared to the other teams. I'm also surprised to see that STR have actually found the need to further increase their opening. Perhaps, are they just testing what they may need for the hotter climates? Also, would the larger rear opening allow for greater air-flow through the body work much the same way as having a larger exhaust pipe to promote less back pressure?
