Have F1’s new rules hurt Mercedes’ low-rake car concept?

    THE RACE

    Үргэлжлэх хугацаа: 08:17

    Mercedes has been one of the few F1 teams in recent years not to follow the ‘high rake’ ride height concept pioneered by Red Bull. But have the rule changes around the floor of the 2021 cars created an aerodynamic situation that works against the Mercedes concept? In this video Edd Straw explains what ‘rake’ really means, how it impacts the downforce produced by an F1 car, and why the rule changes for this year could be causing Mercedes headaches

It's funny, they just bend the rules so they still win the race and when Verstappen goes ahead and does a bit of rulebending (unintentionally, he couldn't rejoin the track immediately and had oversteer) He gets penalized. Fun sport FIA, really enjoyable to watch this way,...

I wonder if this was anticipated and this was seen as a way to allow Red Bull to truly mount a charge against the Merc? If so, it worked and made for a pretty exciting Bahrain finish. I also think it might shut up the Lewis haters who think he only won because he always had the fastest car.

Shut the hell up. Hurt ?? FIA worked with Mercedes for years to make them the most dominant team ever in this sport. I would be saying they were hurt by new rules if Hamilton was 6th or 7th on the qualy day with more than a second away from Max.

Generate less downforce. This will increase the car's acceleration in the long straights, so Mercedes and Aston Martin may just be better on certain tracks such as Monza, Canada, and Azerbaijan. But testing sessions this year in Bahrain (a low downforce track) has so far suggested that the benefit of having better grip during the corners outweighs the benefit of having reduced downforce in the long straights.

' : "Have F1’s new rules hurt Mercedes’ low-rake car concept?" I'd be surprised if so with all the shenanigans F1A has pulled to aid Mercedes during the hybrid era . Secret tire testing using Rosberg and Hamilton (in disguise) instead of required team reserve drivers at Monaco Test . Mercedes struggling early in season with tires overheating so Pirelli reduces tire thickness mid season to aid Mercedes causing most teams on the grid to suffer with tire issues after building their cars around that season's tire regulations . DAS system employed by Mercedes last year allowing drivers to manipulate front steering system geometry under parc firme conditions . Obvious violation of the rules yet judged OK to use for 2020 season .

I think Merc have been so good that even when the evidence of your eyes tell ou one thing. You disbelieve yourself. You are doing the number on your own head. Hope I’m wrong but I don’t think Merc will be all conquering this year...PLEASE....PLEASE, racing. I wonder what the reaction will be if RedBull just run away. Will it be the ar or the driver?

Great Video - Well explained and should be fun to watch the first few races. Mercedes may be sandbagging in certain ways but a twitchy backend and snap oversteer is not a way you would sandbag when there is possibility that will result in a wreck. if the car looked stable and just a little slow, i would lean toward sandbagging, but i bet they are burning the midnight oil trying to figure out how to tame the rear end without losing speed.

Why does F1 make rules like banning physical skirts? Why do they care and how do these types of rule changes help the racing? Every time they make rules it diminishes the racing.

Going around an uneven surface like a race track opens up gaps in those physical skirts and that can radically disrupt the balance of the car, making it very unpredictable and easy to crash.

*Merc-proofed F1 to end this phase of the hybrid era? Yes, please! A man can wish...* Given their aero philosophy, their response to the chunks being taken out of the floor from 2020 to 2021 seems to have fallen short of recouping the lost downforce. Starting with _W05,_ their all-conquering hybrid era beasts have essentially almost always been the pick of the grid in terms of front end responsiveness but given up something to the high-rake brigade in terms of rear stability. _Merc_ appear to have failed to regain the ironclad front-to-rear air-shaping that guaranteed their ultrahigh downforce when dialled in. Here's hoping it takes them time to dial in the aero this season and that they _S🅱️inalla_ and chomp tyres faster to add to their woes and prevent another procession to the world titles!

The secretive car reveal had me thinking the silver arrows had some new innovation at the back end, something ground breaking like the Brawn double diffuser.
