"The new rules for 2017 were developed, with the help of a large growth in aerodynamic performance, to build the fastest F1 cars in history," reports Toto Wolff."They should be harder for the drivers to drive and hopefully, from the point of view of the fans, look more spectacular. The first races will be the proof of this, but we believe we have met this goal."The presentation of the completely redeveloped F1 W08 EQ Power+ confirms this assessment. The W08 was above all aerodynamically optimised and structurally improved in such a way that it is able to withstand the significantly higher mechanical stresses. The airflow from the front wing to the ends of the side boxes is visualised in electric blue, which underlines the characteristic look of the W08. At the same time, a flexible, adaptable philosophy had to be followed, in order to make bigger development steps possible during the season.
