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.

They had to open up bodywork despite the cool temps? damn, they are already borderline on cooling?
You can rest assured they didn't open that because of overheating issues. Either they found that benefitial, maybe to aid the flow over the sidepods, maybe because the halo would disturb the airflow around there anyway, or they're testing the cooling package for the worst case scenario.

They already had that at Bahrain last year, so it's not a last minute job to keep the car running.

Sorry about the resolution, screencapped when it was playing on the smaller monitor (slightly larger when right-click view).

Flow separation on the DRS flap?

It looks like it reattaches before the trailing edge for much of the flap so probably not a big issue. The flap is nearly vertical there so any "lift" it produces is also basically pure drag. The overall wing will still be working properly generating downforce where it's wanted. You're still getting the overall redirection of the airflow to give downforce.

That flow-viz makes it look like something out of a comic book!

The bulge on the pushrods is back, motorsport.con say it contains a spacer to adjust the length and position of the pushrod.

Lewis already in a 'lifting up the team' modus, which is telling of where they stand: BEHIND! (hope to be wrong! [-o< )

Looks like the RAKE has worked against us: high rake the way too go, as RBR thought they will surpass merc due to a new rear wing which is currently being built
Mercedes AMG + Hamilton => dreamteam!

He didnt say anything about the rake, I think your reading far too much into the Interview

No, that's my own interpretation, as RBR is bullish too.

W10`s rear comparing to SF90 and RB15 :

1. Merc and RB went for a bigger DRS flap than Ferrari. What are the advantages?
2. Merc seems to roll more both from be seeing the left rear tyre contact patch and the turning vane near the right sidepod, which is no showing in the picture
3. Merc & RB have a cleaner “triplane” comprising in the upper+lower rear wishbone and diffuser. Ferrari has only two for having the lower rear wishbone in the same plane with the diffuser`s edge...
