Force India VJM10 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.

New FI front wing. The main plane is now a single element (similar to what was brought by Ferrari in Austria) + redesigned flaps

So, teams are reaching the point where they are sure about flow stability on the front wing and are going for downforce. Good!

I count the same amount of elements 5, just the lower element is larger, and the upper elements are more evenly spaced and sized.

Its 3 upper and 2 lower instead of 2 upper and 3 lower, thats the difference.

They said that they are going to bring in major updates to British GP. However, I see only Front wing being updated. Are they ever going to bring update to their large side pods ? :?

Has someone done an image of the VJM10 without the forehead? Would this ruin the car by smoothing out the nose? :)

Very radical approach at the rear end, no T-wing and rear wing endplate is almost flat. They'll once again match the top teams in sector-1 but will struggle at high & low speed corners.

With this, it will be tough for them to catch Renault once it passes them.

Very radical. :?
