Mercedes AMG F1 W06

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.

IMHO, besides the nose, It doesn't look like an "all new" car...
The W05 picture is from Feb/2014, in Bahrain, I think.

I am wondering is it allowed to have so much speed on this "test"!?

Sure but there is no way of knowing how better our rivals will be, so I would expect something more than a simple evolution, based on some comments Paddy if I recall saying that they carried over few parts to the WO6.

Still, let's wait and see, it might just be a different car in the first race.

Hmm.. I still wonder if it is a W05-B... it is so similar... I mean yeah it is a new chassis for sure the "W0-6" but again wow. It is a good when the DNA of a champion is carried forward like whay happened at RedBull. Lets hope for four years of Mercedes domination too! :mrgreen:

I'm sure a lot has changed compared to the W05, but they didn't need to reinvent their Philosophy, so the similar Look doesn't surprise me. They weren't in a situation as McLaren , the 4/30 is sooo radically different from the 4/29 because it was needed.

Is it just me or are there vortex generators on top of a full length airflow condition?

I actually think the car is very different if u look closely. im not talking about radical changes just in the evolution sense. The sidepods, engine cover and airbox are completely different

Lower suspension arms at the front have been raised slightly. Has anyone seen any geometry changes at the back?
