Mercedes cars have new shock absorbersSeptember 28, 2019
The Mercedes team is preparing for a fight with Ferrari, and in Sochi, new shock absorbers appeared on the machines of the champion team.
In Singapore, Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas lost to rivals, including cornering, when it was necessary to attack the curbs. To solve this problem, an additional third shock absorber is added to the front suspension of Mercedes cars, which performs a balancing function. Moreover, it is connected not with the hydraulic part of the suspension system, but with the mechanical one, and is connected to the spring.
The assumption that an improved front suspension will make the behavior of the car at the entrance and exit turns more stable. An additional shock absorber compensates for longitudinal and lateral vibrations of the machine during braking and acceleration. It is horizontally located under the two main shock absorbers, and such a suspension in Mercedes tested already in training in Singapore.
According to the German publication Autobild, before the end of the season the champion team no longer plans to introduce any significant technical updates.
