Mercedes W02 – Refined car cooling configuration for Barcelona test


extra gills

To solve any cooling issues mechanics added extra gills located behind the Petronas logo just above the new exhaust layout . The gilled bodypart can be easily removed and replaced by a solid piece of bodywork in cooler conditions to favor aero efficiency .In an attempt to improve airflow above the sidepods the former openings close to the cockpit sides were replaced by gilled slots  .
