Mercedes W02 – Launch spec diffuser details


All 2011 diffusers must be single decked and look alike to the designs raced back in 2009 before the arrival of the multiple deck  diffusers .  Mercedes  W02 diffuser  has  two sets of vertical fences of different height  , which act like splitters dividing  the structure into two side tunnels  and a central section .  The central section is built wider so as to extract stronger the air flowing under the floor and close to the plank sides  to increase downforce production . The diffuser roof is surrounded by a high tab fence to pseudo increase the dimensions  of the diffuser opening  . I said “pseudo” because the actual size of the diffuser remains the same but airflow with the tab presence feels  the diffuser to be larger than actually is .

Finally the engine starter (in yellow) is reachable to mechanics via a rectangular hole in the centre also defined in size by 2011 rules .
