Mercedes has revealed details about the team’s extensive floor upgrade for the W14, introduced at the United States Grand Prix.

Floor body

Reason for change: Performance – flow conditioning

Difference: “Raised floor leading edge and subsequent tunnel roof reprofiling.”

Description: “Raising the floor leading edge alters the loading distribution on the outer fence, improving flow quality to the rear of the car and hence rear downforce.”
