Basically, I want to know what happens to your rear wing after you have made your pass.
If the wing only works when you are within X seconds of the car in front, I would like to know what happens after the overtaking maneuvre has been completed : Leaving the rear wing on the incorrect DF setting could have serious safety implications, so I would have thought that the wing wouldn't just freeze in place.
Does your wing :
A) Freeze in its current setting?
B) Return to a default setting?
C) Give you a limited time to select the setting that is most suitable for running in clean air?
At the meeting of the FIA World Motor Sport Council in Geneva in June 2010, an adjustable rear wing system was confirmed as an addition to the 2011 rules. It will be introduced to aid overtaking, serving as a substitute for the F-duct system. In a similar system to the KERS regulator used in 2009, the adjustable rear wing would only be available under certain conditions; namely, drivers will only be able to use it when they are within one second of the car in front, but it would not be usable within the first two laps of a race except in the case of an early safety car. The system is expected to offer drivers an additional 15 km/h (9.3 mph) when passing, and will deactivate when the driver first touches the brakes after using the rear wing. The concept, which has been negatively received by drivers and fans alike, could be dropped if it proves impractical or unmanageable.
