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.

Inwash FW is interesting. Hopefully will work better than McLaren’s in 2009.
Are you sure those endplates are inwash?

This team is shocking every year on the aero front! Such a different philosophy...no high mounted sidepod inlets, no rake all these years, the FW isn't even bent outwards to produce that little outwash effect...instead it seems bent inwards! RW Mclaren like sculpted! But they seem to have made the sidepods much smaller! =D>

On the livery front...seems like someone from the internet designed it :lol:

Yes, a slight inwash like the early season MP4/24.Image

Yes, very similar to the MP4/24.

The thing that stands out the most to me is how big the sidepod openings are.

Could this be a fake and the real ones are different?

I guess we will see later today if there are any spy shots from the shakedown.

Sidepods are also very narrow seemingly like the 2013 Sauber.

Is it the angle or is the wheelbase shorter?
