Brackley/Silverstone, Jul 9, 2014 -
In Formula 1 Racing, performance is everything. But under the new rules for 2014, minimal lap times can be achieved only by maximum efficiency. A challenge Mercedes-Benz road car development has been confronted with since day one. As MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS continues to lead the way in the 2014 season, with another hard-fought win at Silverstone, it’s time to take a look where engineers at Brackley and Stuttgart find synergies.

With a new aeroacoustic wind tunnel at its development centre in Sindelfingen, the company now once again leads the way in aerodynamic testing. Measurements in the new wind tunnel can be made at wind speeds of up to 265 km/h. All in all, over a period of five years, the sum of more than € 230 million has been invested in extending the facilities of the Mercedes-Benz Technology Centre including the climate tunnel, the driving simulator centre and from now on the aeroacoustic wind tunnel.
Stuttgart, Jul 18, 2011 -
Mercedes-Benz has inaugurated two new climatic wind tunnels at its Sindelfingen site, designed to bring extreme weather conditions indoors. Temperatures ranging from minus 40 to plus 60 degrees Celsius, hurricanes with wind speeds of up to 265 km/h, tropical rainfall and heavy snowstorms are all part of the standard repertoire available here to the test engineers. If needs be, they can even provide a realistic simulation of a mercilessly hot sun.
