a seemingly simple idea in retrospect, but it has given them a significant edge this season!
Formula 1 engineers get paid loads of money to be very, very clever. Every year there seems to be one team that figures out competitive edge while staying within the rules, and this year, that team is Mercedes.
By splitting the two elements of the turbocharger — putting one in front of the engine and the other behind — the Mercedes-AMG F1 engineers have unlocked a huge amount of potential. Mercedes F1 drivers Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg have won 14 of the 17 races run thus far, and the team has already clinched the manufacturers championship.
