F1 » Lowe: Silverstone will test limits of Mercedes aero

Richard, (and George please read), “Brake disc must rotate at the same speed as the road wheels”, this is a very recent development, first suspects when (a so called blown wheel nut!) was first used, how it’s done?, the disc/rotor is geared to the wheel hub by epicycle gear-set to speed-up rotation compared to road wheel, why?, it will act like an air pump sucking in air in the same principle of the blown diffuser resulting in more air-flow through the disc and through the wheel/nut, Also speeding-up a brake disc/rotor it will need lower pedal pressure to dissipate the same energy.

F1 » Lowe: Silverstone will test limits of Mercedes aero

Yes good luck to everybody on the grid at Silverstone against the two WO5’S, but any luck this season will only result if Mercedes hits trouble (reliability or cock-ups) and regardless of what happened in Canada their reliability is one of the best, they have the best electrical power on the grid through their MGU-H and as long as the rules stands (end of season) technically speaking the others cannot do anything about it.
