FIA rules provocative Mercedes wing illegal

Lewis Hamilton is disappointed that Mercedes’ final upgrade package of 2022 did not deliver the expected performance boost. Although Red Bull and Ferrari were clearly superior in 2022, the reigning constructors’ champions touched down in Austin with a significant package of upgrades. The Mercedes package included a new floor, key weight savings, and new front and rear wings. Engineering boss Andrew Shovlin said on Thursday that a new front wing design was to “improve management of vortices around the tyres”. But Shovlin said the full Austin upgrade – the last one for 2022 – was a “mix to improve performance of this year’s car and ensure that our understanding is correct as we move in the right direction” for next year.
