  • Formula 1 Explaining Mercedes wild steering wheel innovation

The world champions started the second day of testing with Lewis Hamilton at the wheel and it soon became apparent he was using the steering wheel for more than just steering. When asked about the system tech chief James Allison said he wasn't anxious about its legality while Hamilton insisted there was no issue with safety.

"We would shed a great deal of more light than what you see on the TV, but we have a system in the cars, a novel idea", Allison said.

He added: "I'm pleased we got it on the auto, it seems to be useful, and we'll see over the coming days how it benefits us".

"Precisely how we use it and why we use it, that's something that we will keep to ourselves". It just introduces an extra dimension to the steering and the driver that we hope will be useful during the year.

When pressed on whether Mercedes were anxious about being punished for potentially breaking the rules and regulations, Allison said: "Not really". But we have a system in the vehicle, it's a novel idea.

When asked if Mercedes were anxious about the device's legality, Allison replied: "No not really, this isn't news to the FIA, it's something we've been talking to them [about] for some time. We're confident that it matches all of those requirements".

Hamilton recorded over 100 laps in the morning session as Sergio Perez set the fastest time in his Racing Point, and Allison has been talking to media in Barcelona.

Not only is the steering wheel being pushed and pulled as Hamilton navigates the corners and straights, but those movements also seem to be perfectly aligned to the movement of the front wheels.

"I've only had one morning on [it, so] I don't really have a lot to talk about with it". The FIA are okay with the projects.

"For me it's really encouraging to see that my team is continuing to innovate and stay ahead of the game, and I think that's down to the great minds in the team and so hopefully that'll work to our benefit".
