Allison admitted that Mercedes first used the 'novel' W11 steering system in tests

Mercedes Technical Director James Ellison spoke about a controversial new product that attracted widespread attention in the paddock on the second day of Formula 1 tests in Barcelona. Mercedes engineers have developed an unusual steering system called the DAS. It allows you to change the angle of convergence of the wheels directly during movement.

“We spent an interesting day activating the DAS system for the first time. Now, riders will have to familiarize themselves with the work of this system and understand what benefits can be derived from it in the season, ”Mercedes press service quotes Ellison.

Today, February 21, the third, last day of the first series of tests will be held. The second series of pre-season tests will be held from February 26 to 28.
