Mercedes W01 – Updated floor splitter at Bahrain


  Early Winter pre session testing

  

    W01’s   initially featured a  large and boxy floor splitter  with  wavy sides to guide airflow more efficiently under the car  . The oversized Mercedes splitter , compared to other teams much smaller design , was the result of the team’s decision to house a really large amount of ballast inside it  . During  late winter testing and at the first 2010  race at Sakhir , the W01 had an updated splitter with additional holed side sections to improve further the aero efficiency of the car’s underbody  .
