    Mercedes is HQ'd in Brackley. One hopes Lauda feels differently about working with Englishmen now, than he did when Jag fired him.

    3) Front wing tests - to prevent them flexing, front wings now face a tougher deflection test, with a 1,000N (100kg) load applied at two different points on both the longitudinal and transverse axes. The amount the wing may deflect has been reduced from 20mm to 10mm.
