So you know those teeny sidepods on the Mercedes, are they actually legal?

And there is a lot of ‘stuff’ in a Formula 1 car - so how did they just shuffle it all about to make it all fit? And what’s that weird sticky out section about?

Well, we’ve got Scarbs back to explain.

So Merc have rocked up with these genius sidepods, that look to be helping the floor work more effectively as well as creating more outwash - dealing with the tyre wake and potentially reducing drag.

But it does seem weird that they weren’t running them back in Barcelona? We’re they keeping it secret for Bahrain? Lemme pass you over to Scarbs.
