60N is roughly 6 kg. The real load under driving is already more when going over 30kmh or so. As always it is a useless test, which has little relevance to the real situation the test is developed for.

This is the official Mercedes W13 car thread. The thread has been created to facilitate discussion specifically about the W13 car.
Please, ONLY discuss technical items of this car. Refrain from speculation.
General discussion about the team, its drivers and performance can be posted in the team thread.
Livery discussion also belongs in the 2022 Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team thread.
Nope! He tends to set up his car more towards qualy with a quicker warm-up phase than HAM (which is btw worse for the tyre management in the race), hence he just went over the optimal soft tyre windows overcooking the rear ones, hence he was sliding more at the rear and having no grip for the front tyres in order to attack the corners ... in contrast, with the low temps at Imola it worked out perfectly for him and not for HAM...
I really dont find the sidepods have much to do with it.
