Mercedes To Run Radical Engine Cover
Mercedes Benz have unveiled their radical new engine cover which they hope will propel them to the top of the podium in Sunday’s Spanish Grand Prix.
The German car manufacturer has been struggling with its car against the likes of Ferrari and Red Bull Racing, however weeks of hard work and technical advancement have led to the team launching swathes of upgrades including an extended wheelbase and this new engine cover.
The cover has a very thin roll bar, and two large ducts on either side as opposed to the normal circular engine duct seen where the roll hoop is. It will also be used in conjunction with an F-Duct.
Michael Schumacher shook down the new car in a filming event last week and will be looking to get more comfortable following a difficult return to F1.
