Mercedes-AMG F1 W10 EQ Power+

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.

Well that's a major revision on the endplates... Are we sure it's just for reducing drag and not a change in philosophy towards tapered flap arrangement?
Same spec that was used in China (with some minor adjustments made for this circuit's DF requirements).

Interesting. If I'm not mistaken that is actually the standard RW.

The fella says he has no clue about this race. This is why fans dislike Mercedes. They've obviously got the arguably the best car in since 14 yet they keep playing underdogs. 3 1-2s in 4 races and they've no clue how strong they'll be in Azerbaijan. Total Farce!

He doesn't give away anything. All he does is explain the general concept (which is common sense) in a simplified way. He does not explain how they do it.

What's your source for the statement "Mers has totally surpassed RB in this area"?
