At the French Grand Prix Mercedes has introduced some upgrades for their 2022 challenger – the W13. Here they are!

Floor Edge

Reason for change: Performance – local load

Difference: “New rear reduced curvature floor edge ahead of rear tyre.”

Description: “Reduces local floor load by reducing the local camber improving flow into the diffuser, which in turn increases diffuser load.”

Front Corner

Reason for change: Circuit specific – cooling range

Difference: “Addition of internal louvres local to front brake duct exit.”

Description: “Improves how the brake disc cooling flow exits the front cake tin, increasing mass flow through the disc and hence cooling.”
