Mercedes W02 – Modified exhaust layout at Barcelona March test


 

The new exhaust pipes are now shifted much forward from their former position, which was below the suspension elements . Later and during the testing a vertical fence ( in yellow arrow ) was added to guide better  the hot emissions towards the diffuser outer section , but not so direct like they did before .

The new exhaust layout is possibly connected to the way the new diffuser works and helped the team to build a bit slimmer rear zone .

    Brawn said that this new exhaust layout brings 6 tenths per lap! 😉

      Do you have a link to Ross Brawn statement ? Do the whole upgrade package worth 6 ths or exhausts alone ?
