The car comes with a new advanced energy recovery system (ERS) that has two motor generator units while the battery pack stores ten times more energy offering a total boost of 33 seconds per lap and enabling a 160 bhp double boost which should facilitate more overtakes.
Other changes include a 20 percent downforce reduction due to the lower and narrower front wing, a flatter rear wing flap which opens up further, different nose and rear wing, along with the elimination of the exhaust blown diffuser and beam wing. For this year teams will only have five engines to use throughout the season as opposed to 2013 when they had eight. Lastly, the fuel tank's capacity has been reduced by 30 percent to 140 liters.
