Sorry I failed to intro myself: USA Tifosi. Been following F1 for 50 years (really). It isn't what it once was. Imagine Surtees, Hill, Stewart, Peterson, Clark, Brabham, Hulme and so many others within the span of just a few seasons. Must stop before I get into triple-plug Maserati V12s, Life, Subaru, Motori Moderni . . .
Interesting that Aldo Costa SAID that the longer wheelbase was intended to maximize aerodynamics. Supposedly, a longer, unobstructed flow was the intent. Yes, it was definitely slower on the very tight courses, as one would expect. Now, can the "new" team avoid what we Americans call the "sohomore jinx."
