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.

Guys keep it about the Car in this Thread. Test Schedule should be discussed in the Team Thread.

They look rather small compared to Renaults.
Honda!

More from Allison and Cowell:
Allison wrote:“We managed to be competitive at tracks which had plagued us in recent years. However, notwithstanding this improvement, we were still not as good as some of our competitors at preserving the performance of the rear tyres.

“We have worked hard on the suspension and aerodynamic characteristics to deliver a car that will be much kinder to its tyres – enough, we hope, to allow us to be competitive at all phases of the race and at each track on the calendar.”
Cowell wrote:“We’ve made changes to the cooling architecture of the Power Unit, which hopefully provide aerodynamic benefit on the car and also provide efficiency benefit on the Power Unit – so, hopefully a win on both the chassis and on the Power Unit,” said Cowell.

“Right at the heart of the Power Unit is the conversion of fuel into heat release in the combustion chamber and useful work out of the crankshaft. We have made steps on the combustion efficiency and on the ERS system.

“The marriage between the turbocharger assembly with the MGU-H, the inverter, the cells and the MGU-K: that whole system is now capable of operating more efficiently and helping with energy deployment through a race.”
Honda!

Lewis should be happy with this car. Here is another championship capable car. Look at the nose and front suspension.
What about the fat air intake and a fat rear wing?
I said airbox and not just the intake on the Renault thread and the merc airbox is nowhere near as fat as the Renault. The Renault is just a piece of slab beef whereas this merc one is sculpted, tapered and foiled after the intake with a purpose. I can tell straight away that this car is championship material. The championship will just depend on Ferrari, Red Bull and Honda.

We have a team that are reigning champions and this cars design is a clear evolution with a smattering of wow like the front nose and wishbones. The sidepods are different to everything else but still svelt with a nice undercut.

Alright, we are going to refrain from declaring cars "champion winning" based on their looks. Please keep discussion to the actual hardware and what it functionally does.

Those sidepods are really ... slim.

Just have a look how much the crash structure protrudes

Hasn´t anyone except me noticed how high the front wing itself is positioned on the endplate? Thats a unique feature for the Mercedes until now. Maybe they trying to push more air under the car and into the bardgeboard area.

It looks like nobody choose to use additional fuel. (I think nobody expect from mercedes to use it hence they have very efficient engine and now it looks like they made it better )

Those two big number "11" ducts at the front seem to be there to do a hell of a lot more than cool the driver. That's looking very interesting indeed. It's not on the release car pictures, but it's front and center on the car they put on track to do filming with.
Countdown to 91: 7 more victories ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
