The Mercedes-AMG F1 W11 EQ Performance is a Formula One racing car designed and constructed by the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team to compete in the 2020 Formula One World Championship. The car is set to be driven by Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas.[6] The car was planned to make its competitive début at the 2020 Australian Grand Prix, but this was delayed when the race was cancelled and the next three events in Bahrain, Vietnam and China were postponed in response to the 2019-20 coronavirus pandemic.[7][8] It is now expected to make its début at the 2020 Canadian Grand Prix.

The pandemic also prompted the delay of technical regulations that had been planned for introduction in 2021. Under an agreement reached between teams and the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile, 2020-specification cars—including the F1 W11 EQ Performance—will see their lifespan extended to compete in 2021.[9]

Initial design

The W11 has a system which Mercedes have coined Dual Axis Steering (DAS) which allows the driver to adjust the toe of the front wheels to optimise mechanical grip by pulling or pushing on the steering wheel. DAS will allow the drivers to warm the car's tyres more efficiently by having a zero toe but allows for better cornering ability by using a positive toe, a feature which will be of particular significance on circuits with long straights.[10] DAS will have to be removed from the car after the 2020 championship as the system will be banned for 2021.[11]
