Today Lewis Hamilton is once again driving at the Imola circuit aboard the Mercedes-AMG F1 W10 EQ Power + The reason lies in the first of the two days where, together with the tire manufacturer Pirelli, the Mercedes drivers will continue developing the new 18-inch tires they will use in the next 2022 Formula One season. After the tests hed at the Jerez circuit with Ferrari and later in Bahrain again with Ferrari and Alpine, it’s up to Mercedes to test with slick dry tires. The single-seater of the 2019 season is used with suspensions and other components suitably modified to accommodate the larger diameter tires. The current 2021 car, the W12 E Performance, is not adopted, certainly to not accumulate kilometres at the power unit and compromise its reliability. The understandable decision as it would be the same engine used during the races of the current season, and there is no need to wear it for tests. Recall that the second race of the Formula 1 world championship has just taken place in this spectacular circuit; Hamilton has made an important comeback that has seen him reach the second step of the podium. The Mercedes-AMG F1 W10 EQ Power + single-seater adopts the 1.6-litre V6 Turbo engine moved by the 8-speed + RM sequential gearbox; traction is rear. The frame is in carbon fibre with a honeycomb structure; the car’s total weight is 743 kg. In the 2019 season, it hit the target of world champion for both titles, drivers and manufacturers. Out of 21 races disputed, it won on 15 occasions obtaining 10 pole positions and 9 fastest laps. I have to thank my friend and YouTubers@19Bozzy92 & @MattyB727 – Car Videos with whom I collaborated to realise this video. Enjoy! 😉

Oggi Lewis Hamilton è nuovamente tornato a guidare sul circuito di Imola a bordo della Mercedes-AMG F1 W10 EQ Power+ Il motivo risiede nella prima delle due giornate dove assieme al costruttore di penumatici Pirelli i piloti Mercedes continueranno lo sviluppo delle nuove gomme da 18 pollici che verranno impiegati nella prossima stagione 2022 di Formula Uno. Dopo le prove effettuate sul circuito di Jerez con la Ferrari e successivamente in Bahrain nuovamente con Ferrari ed Alpine, ora tocca alla casa tedesca effettuare i test con le coperture slick da asciutto. Viene impiegata la monoposto della stagione 2019 con sospensioni ed altri componenti opportunamente modificati per ospire gli pneumatici di maggior diametro. Non viene adottata l’attuale vettura 2021, la W12 E Performance, sicuramente per non accumulare chilometri alla power unit e pregiudicarne l’affidabilità. Decisione comprensibile inquanto sarebbe lo stesso motore impiegato durante le gare della stagione in corso e non è il caso di usurarlo per dei test. Ricordiamo che in questo spettacolare circuito si è appena svolta la seconda gara del campionato del mondo di Formula 1, Hamilton ha compiuto un’importante rimonta che lo ha visto raggiungere il secondo gradino del podio. La monoposto Mercedes-AMG F1 W10 EQ Power+ adotta il motore da 1.6-Litri V6 Turbo mosso dal cambio sequenziale a 8 rapporti + RM; la trazione è posteriore. Il telaio è in fibra di carbonio con struttura a nido d’ape, il peso complessivo dell’auto è di 743 Kg. Nella stagione 2019 ha centrato l’obbiettivo di campione del mondo per entrambi i titoli, piloti e costruttori. Su 21 gare disputate è stata vincente in 15 occasioni ottenendo 10 pole-position e 9 giri veloci.
Un grande grazie all’amico e YouTubers @19Bozzy92 & @MattyB727 – Car Videos con cui ho collaborato alla realizzazione del video. Buona visione! 😉

Did anyone get any times so we have something to compare this setup against the current one? I know it's just R&D but I would be curious to see where they were at. One thing I noticed is that the car looks very stable.

PMB UNMAHA FAJAR ASTANAPRIMA says:

18 inches looks better, 😁👍

Jaden Campbell says:

Is this in there older car

Bahamuttiamat says:

Comparing this versus Valtteri's videos, it's clear lewis is much smoother and carries more speed.

Eros Anselmo says:

Inguardabile

Slick Mike says:

Hey F1, it you want to find out what you really need to fix, listen to the engine notes of the v12s, v10s, and v8s, and you'll see what the real problem is

Slick Mike says:

could be a bit wider

alberto davoli says:

Beh sembra già a proprio agio Lewis….

Arthur Morgan says:

0:28 Anyone know why all of the Mercedes cars do this upon stopping and doing a start? What is this procedure called? 🙂

David Brown says:

What is interesting to me is I can't really see much of a difference between the size of the tyres. If that makes sense. The tyres still look brilliant. So looking forward to Portimao.

Preston Fazio says:

Thanks for the amazing video man!

Adib Wasi says:

What !!! Why he testing on W10?/

DaylightDigital says:

F1 cars are so much faster than anything else its crazy

Sunny #Sunny says:

sounded heavy!!!

Augusto O.R says:

Looks badass

Pék Backer says:

can't wait for the haters "another secret pirelli Merc-FIA test"

Jean Clod says:

Ottima sequenza del giro nell'autodromo più bello che ci sia, fantastic job

Scotracer1987 says:

Very pleasant sound. Complicated and nuanced. You've heard loads of these, are the 2021 engines any louder? I last heard in 2017 Austria and they were loud enough on full power.

It looks like Mercedes have taken rear wing off since last week's race. To simulate 2022 levels? Still looked rocket ship fast.

Edoardo Borghini 24 says:

It seems an offroad 4×4

gdobos76 says:

Sounds terrible…

Toe Cutter says:

Hai notato con che tempi girava?

Aditya Patnaik says:

Imagine watching this in 2031 like we watch Schumacher's videos now.

upside downdog says:

The old size tires were a large component of the suspension. I predict some "teething time" will occur dialing in new setups. Odd things may happen seemingly unrelated but will end up to be.

Jamie King says:

Glad you got access ✅

Jamie King says:

😳 YES DUDE!!

2021 footage 😆
