"The attention to detail at Mercedes F1 is phenomenal," said Nick Holroyd, Chief Designer of INEOS TEAM UK.
"Even the smallest details of design and build can add up to be quite a significant performance gain and they have brought that exactness to our campaign.
"Previously, we have tended to look at the big performance opportunities and how we can manipulate those but with Mercedes F1 Applied Science support we have been able to push to the finest of levels and this can be seen first-hand in our foil wing programme which we have really pushed to the leading edge."
Graham Miller, Director of Applied Science at Mercedes F1, added: "One of the things we bring to the table is extra bandwidth which has meant increased reliability and efficiency and has led to time saving on the project.
"We also noticed there was not a big in-house manufacturing capability within the team compared to our HQ. Therefore, we were able to take the foil build project in-house at Brackley using some of the world's best manufacturing tools to drive the project to meet specific timelines."
