Mercedes leave F1 rivals stunned with new design but Toto Wolff insists Lewis Hamilton’s car is legal

TOTO WOLFF says he has no concerns about the legality of this year’s Mercedes. Wolff’s team stunned the F1 paddock in Bahrain by unveiling a slimmed down version of their car they tested in Barcelona last month. The new design has raised eyebrows and could be subjected to a protest from rival teams, such as Red Bull, who will question whether it is within the new rules. But Wolff says his team have done nothing wrong and the small sidepod design has been given the all-clear by the FIA. He said: “The process is very clear, when you go in a specific development direction with your team, having the FIA as part of scrutinising it, you’re exchanging CAD data and making them part of the process.”. F1 teams are in Bahrain for the next few days for final testing.
