Mercedes to use controversial wing in Mexico

Mercedes has taken a new front wing to Mexico that some speculated a week ago in Austin may be illegal. It appears that the small winglets on the design, apparently to produce an ‘outwash’ effect that is against the spirit of the 2022 rules, have now been removed. Engineering boss Andrew Shovlin denies concerns about illegality is why Mercedes did not use the wing in the US. “The reason we didn’t run it in Austin was that we only had one,” he said. Shovlin says Mercedes now has spares in the luggage in Mexico “so we’ll try it on Friday”.
