Mercedes noted that it will focus mainly on the car for 2022 due to the new regulations, but the team is periodically testing new parts for the current season. In Sochi and Istanbul, for example, the team tested a new front division.
Who knows during the United States Grand Prix the new front division is likely to be used in a race soon Motorsport-Total.com. It remains to be seen whether the wing can make a big difference in the battle for the championship. Mercedes has come up with a major update for the British Grand Prix, which has clearly narrowed the gap to Red Bull.
In practice on Friday in both Sochi and Istanbul, the front wing was tested with a low-down system. The upgrade has not yet been used in qualifying and racing, but the trail in Austin has many long lengths. The front wing here can make a big difference. Qatar is a round with many straight lines.
Normally, teams would bring updates after the update now, but by 2022, teams will take it easy. With only six races and minor differences in the championship, anything is possible. Who knows, Mercedes’ new flagship division will make a difference.
