Mercedes W02 – Rear wing (Launch spec)


 

W02 movable rear wing looks simple but effective at the same time .  The team exploits the two flap separators ( No1 ) to adjust the attack angle of the second flap enjoying a low drag configuration  .The  separators push the flap upwards , a motion helped by a rotation axis marked with No2 arrows . Housing the flap adjuster inside the endplates with the help of the flap separators to reduce the attack angle  and also making the main plane rigid enough made the mechanics to abolish any need of a wing centre pillar .
