Mercedes focus on rear tyre performance with W10 design

Mercedes technical boss James Allison says W10 design overhauls have been directly targeted at its weaknesses on rear tyre performance and durability.
Allison accepts an overhaul was required to avoid a similar problem this year with the W10 with key changes to its suspension setup and aerodynamics compared to its predecessor.
James Allison: “We have worked hard on the suspension and aerodynamic characteristics to deliver a car that will be much kinder to its tyres – enough, we hope, to allow us to be competitive at all phases of the race and at each track on the calendar.”
