Mercedes makes major changes with its 2020 F1 car - W11 technical analysis

Mercedes has made significant changes to its 2020 F1 car in its bid to win a seventh consecutive world championship double. Despite this being the final year of the current rules cycle, the team has identified three key areas it could make fundamental changes to, as it bids to fend off the emerging threats from Ferrari and Red Bull. In this video we explain the changes Mercedes has made to make sure it “doesn’t run out of development steam”, as well as looking at the smaller tweaks it has made with this year’s W11.

  • Does anyone else think it’s kind of darkly funny that the manufacturer famous for their car going into the crowd at Le Mans in 1955 has a car with a sponsor for a company named Crowdstrike now?

  • It's F1 management's job to throw Mercedes a curve ball and they are not doing that since the inception of the turbo-hybrid era. They have allowed Mercedes to stay in a comfortable position and dominate. In years past they have always threw a curve ball once a team began to dominate the series as they did with Ferrari around 2005, and as they did with McLaren in the early 90s. Please give us some excitement F1, and make drastic changes to the cars and power units not small changes just so that you can say you made a change!

  • If either championship comes down to the last race in 2020, i will be very surprised... Mercedes is not known for making many mistakes, so unless at least one other team finally gets their act together, 2020 is probably going to be just as boring as 2018 and 2019. And i can't really fault Mercedes for it, of course they want to win everything they can possibly win, it's just terrible for any sport when one competitor dominates everything for a number of years...

    CrimePhoenix 27CrimePhoenix 27Muaj më parë
    • CrimePhoenix 27 not sure the new rules will achieve much. This year teams will get a chance to build on what was good about their 2019 car & improve on the parts that didn’t work , so we should see some close racing. Next year it’s back to square one & any advantage gained this year Will prove negligible. Will the new rules stop Mercedes winning is anyone’s guess.

    • @The KitOwl It's not even a Mercedes thing to be honest. I don't like it when ANY team or driver start winning everything for more than a few years. I don't have an actual team or driver i support, i just want the championship to be close and hopefully alternating between drivers and teams, regardless of who is winning... I didn't like Schumacher and Ferrari when they won everything from 2000 to 2004. I didn't like Vettel and Red Bull when they swept 2010 to 2013, and now it's Hamilton and Mercedes who swept everything from 2014 to (likely) 2020 at least!

      MichaelMichaelMuaj më parë
  • You guys say they've kept their front wing concept from 2019, but I see major differences on the 2020 wing. The endfences are clearly providing more outwash in 2020, and the wing comes up on the outside of the wing on the underside, making me think Mercedes is kinda pushing toward the Ferrari wing concept, but with a different geometry (basically funneling more outwash under the wing than over it)

    • ​@Adithya Naren If you look at the first races and last race of last year, Mercedes had a clear advantage. The rules are carry over, so whoever had an advantage - Mercedes - started the winter break with it and will go through the off season with the others playing catch up. I would estimate, based on their run of success since 2014, that with the money and resources they have, and with the operation as slick as it is, they will build on the strengths they had last year and dial out the weaknesses, keeping them ahead of the opposition.

      J TJ TMuaj më parë
    • Okay. But why do you think so? Aren't other teams close enough to narrow the gap and take the title fight to mercedes? Or is it just by looking at this car you feel they will win it
