1) Is it of value for evaluating flow around the radiator inlet, barge board? An amazing amount of flow is channeled out side of the rear wheels. I would have thought that the coke bottle side pods would have allowed more of this flow inside towards the rear wing.
2) Did you watch the stepped nose video? That seem accurate in shape and configuration. The flow goes all to hell very rapidly after hitting the ramp.
Lets face it, this is the best general current F1 design CFD we have.

I noted that in your earlier statements. What is the standard practice in such simulations? Why do you assume the wheels are not spinning? The program code could account for spinning wheels.
