It was addressed *slightly* during a Germany update (added a new ERS cooler, slightly more open bodywork in a few places, including a less restrictive engine cover).Gerhardsa wrote: ↑Mon Jun 29, 2020 6:38 pmWould love to know where you get you insider information from. LOL, not even one lap turned in anger anywhere and they already have cooling issues.
For 2020, however, Bill must've missed the fact that Mercedes have said several times that the W11 rectified all of the cooling problems of the W10 (while still making the system smaller). This has been covered by several outlets. It mentioned how the PU was able to exceed limits the engineers thought it was capable of in '19 because of how hot they had to run it all the time.
A refresher, for Bill:

All i understood was Pink Mercedes has some cooling problems they need to resolve.
