Mercedes has gone beyond the usual low-drag set-ups of a small rear wing and trimmed front wing flaps for Spa. It has introduced a wide range of changes for the low-downforce demands of the circuit.
Starting at the front of the car, the nose is subtly revised. It is now more rounded and hooked, with a smooth curve over the top and an arched underside.
This creates more space under the nose for airflow to reach a new series of turning vanes mounted in this area.
