Big story from this mornings running at F1 testing in Spain is a trick steering wheel/column on the Mercedes car in the hands of Lewis Hamilton.
Under heavy braking commentators have spotted movement of the wheel/column and have been speculating as to what could be happening. General consensus seems to be that it may be an improved version of the dipping front wing trick that is suspension led and enhances the inside height in corners. Merc pioneered this but many teams now run front suspension cornering enhancement.
Merc when questioned on the movable steering offered no response, however a radio message to Lewis shortly after team was door stepped asked driver to cease testing steering.
Now is this a movable aero device, is it a real breakthrough for performance - or is it one of those red herrings offered up by teams during testing to throw us off the track of real advances?
