Rule changes designed to slow Mercedes down says Wolff

Mercedes and Aston Martin suspect the 2021 aerodynamic rule tweaks were designed specifically to most adversely affect Mercedes-like cars with a so-called ‘low rake’ philosophy. “Mercedes and us have been the hardest hit by these new technical rules while high-rake cars like Red Bull, Alpha Tauri and Ferrari are doing better.”. However, the rule change around the floor of the cars is not the full story. But Wolff also thinks Formula 1 has finally succeeded in ending Mercedes’ dominance by changing the aero rules. Wolff warned, however, that Mercedes cannot simply copy Red Bull’s high-rake philosophy. We can’t just raise the car at the back and everything is fine,” he said.
