That struck me as well. Would love it if all the teams did this.OO7 wrote: ↑Sun Sep 20, 2020 7:42 amYeah that was an awesome video zibby. We got a look at the sidepod rad (partially covered) which may have a slight curvature to it, as well as the uninstalled floor (around the bib/tea-tray) and a clean shot of the steering wheel during clutch bite point check. That car is something else!
I was also surprise at the number of exposed boxes there are in the cockpit (when Lewis was being strapped in).
They use them all the time, it`s just an air duct that goes over the brake disc into the cake tin which needs checking to make sure it`s clear of debris. Some air is vented onto the disc to help cool it and also blow the warmer air onto the rim to help with tyre temperature.
This was already used even with the blown axle. Teams want as much outwash as possible from the rimJust_a_fan wrote: ↑Mon Sep 21, 2020 7:35 pmThe bypass duct does as its name implies. It ducts air around the brake and directly outwards through the wheel. It replicates the old blown axle.
I'll see what I can find. In the meantime, here's the wheel:HungarianRacer wrote: ↑Fri Sep 25, 2020 10:33 amWould someone post pictures of the two bodywork configurations Valtteri and Lewis trialed in FP1 please?
Which one do you guys think is the higher cooling spec anyway? BOT's car had the bloated bodywork around and behind the exhaust manifold area, but with clearly smaller and narrower (making it technically a more "pinched in" bodywork) rear outlets compared to HAM's config, who had what has been the "relatively high" cooling setup ever since they introduced their 2019 Germany upgrade package...
Reflection. Only the flap under the uppermost flap has the split-tip.F1Krof wrote: ↑Wed Oct 07, 2020 5:39 pmIs Mercedes' front-wing upper flap split or is it just the reflection?
