Mercedes GP W01 – New sidepod panels at Bahrain


  Launch

      The Mercedes W01 car had been launched featuring 2009 BGP001 panels design and it was obvious that a new panel would show up soon before the first 2010 race and so it did happen .

  Bahrain

     The new panel  which was also tried during late winter tests has a more boxy profile with the intense rear  cut to be vanished     .  Another major difference was the addition of an extra winglet extending towards the inner zone to smoothen the air circulation between the panel and the sidepod surface . Lastly the lower panel section is inclined in a more intense way towards the inner to alter airflow around the sidepod bottoms , a change triggered by the introduction of a new diffuser  at Sakhir also .
