Video: Australian GP damage to Hamilton's Mercedes F1 car explained

Lewis Hamilton floor damage

Valtteri Bottas took a dominant victory in the Australian Grand Prix, as polesitter Lewis Hamilton failed to match his Mercedes Formula 1 team-mate's pace.

But following the race, it was revealed that Hamilton had sustained floor damage that impacted his performance - with the five-time world champion saying it was a relief to find there was a reason for his struggles.

Technical Editor Jake Boxall-Legge uses our exclusive 3D animation of the Mercedes W10 to pinpoint the damage and explain why such a small change visually could have such a big influence on Hamilton's performance.
