Mercedes unveils ‘very extreme’ Formula 1 car design

News Post || News Now:

Mercedes has revealed an eyebrow-raising car design just a week out from the start of the Formula 1 season.

F1 teams hit the track in Bahrain on Thursday evening AEDT for the first day of the final pre-season testing weekend before the opening grand prix on March 20.

But before an engine was fired up, Mercedes had heads turning in the paddock with its new car design.

F1 has undergone the largest regulation upheaval in four decades, with teams grappling with new designs for aerodynamics and tyres.

The new regulations have led to stark differences in the look of the cars as the teams try to find the best formula for speed and consistency.

Mercedes has taken its design to a new level, removing the sidepods from its vehicle.

Sidepods are designed to direct air inside the car, keeping the engine cool.

F1’s motorsport managing director Ross Brawn said Mercedes’ decision to remove them was an unexpected and “very extreme” interpretation of the new rules.
