I've heard rumors about traction control or a steerable rear axle It probably can not be trueJust_a_fan wrote: ↑Sun May 12, 2019 9:20 pm1. If it was TC, the driver would be aware of it being on the carZynerji wrote: ↑Sun May 12, 2019 8:27 pmSounds like a very convenient way to prevent wheel spin. I'm interested in why you're taking such as dismissive stance about this. TC and all related tech is banned. I don't see it as easily dismissed if there is public statements about a behavior that could easily mimic this banned driver aid.
2. If the car has TC, the driver certainly wouldn't be drawing attention to it in such a fashion - he'd more likely say "I got a bit of wheelspin and it ruined by start", not "I got symptoms that might be construed as having TC fitted to my car".
3. TC is intended to improve traction and maximise drive away from standstill or corners. TC would make the take off from the line better, not worse.
You are implying the Mercedes has TC as it's a convenient way to exlain why they are better than your preferred team.
