Mercedes launch W02

The Mercedes W02

The Mercedes W02

Mercedes were one of the four teams to reveal their 2011 cars today, with the Brackley-based squad pulling the covers off the W02.

Seeing as development had begun on this car back in July last year, expectations are huge for the all-German line-up. The front of the car is home to several changes, such as a very odd-looking nosecone, which becomes very wide and flat at the front. The angle of the bridges on the side of the nose are also very different.

The front wing has been heavily revised, and the sidepods now contain two smaller bargeboards instead of one. A pull-rod suspension system has been adapted to the rear of the car. Also, the roll bar appears to very unusually far back, well behind the overhead air intake.
