Mercedes brings big upgrade package to Belgium!

For the Belgian Grand Prix Mercedes has prepared the biggest upgrade package of all front-running teams. Here are the changes made!

Front Wing Endplate

Reason for change: Performance – flow conditioning

Difference: “Reprofiled wing tip elements as they run into the endplate.”

Description: “Improved flow over wing tip by reducing pressure peaks, reducing losses and improving flow to the rear of the car.”

Floor Fences

Reason for change: Performance – local load

Difference: “Floor fence alignment adjustment.”

Description: “Better fence alignment through more conditions, improving the flow that feeds into the floor vortex system and improving local downforce.”

Floor Body

Reason for change: Performance – flow conditioning

Difference: “New reduced chord floor edge wing.”

Description: “Reduced wing chord reduces wing load, this in turn improves flow into the diffuser increasing both floor and diffuser downforce.”

Rear Wing

Reason for change: Performance – drag reduction

Difference: “Reprofiled flap and wing tips.”

Description: “Efficient reduction in wing load which is appropriate for the circuit in Spa where lower drag wing levels are optimum.”
