Yesterday TJ13 reported on a persistent rumour within the paddock, that the new W13 F1 Mercedes will have an extreme update for this weeks Bahrain test. It appears that this rumour is true.
With an almost total deletion of the cars’ sidepods, performance increase is rumoured to be up to 1 second per lap faster. Of course, this is yet to be proved, but thus far only Adrian Newey’s Red Bull RB18 appears to be as extreme as the Mercedes.
