It will be permitted to do so 2 times per lap.
The technical directors agreed to proposals which are as follows:
- Front wing width increased to 180 instead of 140 cm.
- Front wing height decreased to 7.5 instead of 15 cm.
- The middle section over a width of 40 cm has to be a standard part.
- The driver may adjust the front wing flaps from the cockpit twice a lap by an angle of a maximum 6 degrees.
- Rear wing width 75 instead of 100 cm
- Rear wing height 95 instead of 80 cm.
The diffusor then starts from the centre of the rear axle rather than from the front end of the rear wheels. It may raise to 17.5 instead of 12.5 cm. The bodywork has to be clean. That means no barge boards, no winglets, no chimneys, no flipups.
Windtunnel research has shown that with the new rules the overall downforce loss will be 50 percent compared to the 2006 aero. If you follow another car within half a car length you will only lose 25 instead of 46 percent of the downforce and the balance shift will be 1 percent to the front rather than 4 percent to the back as it is now

I believe the original proposal was for an adjustment only when the car senses turbulences. obviously a compromise has been made. if both drivers can make the adjustment it will not be as effective to help passing but from a sporting point it is fairer. good point actually!
WhiteBlue wrote:the oversized front wing would produce oversteer for a car in clean air if it would use all downforce available and so they will never use the potential when in front.
WhiteBlue wrote: the following car will profit getting close to optimum downforce with the oversized wing in the turbulent air. also reducing drag on the straight makes a lot of sense in terms of energy saving. but why are they restricted to two wing settings per lap. that doesn't make sense if there are two straights.

The "two times" is i suppose to prevent teams to built cars around adaptive aeros.
The "two times" significance is a bit unclear now..is "up then down" considered one time? or either movement as one time...we'll have to wait to see.

Behavior that enables an organism to function effectively in its environment.
Adaptation describes the process whereby an organism adapts to, or learns to survive in, its environment. The process is crucial to natural selection, enabling those organisms or species best suited to a particular environment to survive. Ethologists, scientists who study the behavior of animals in their natural habitats from an evolutionary perspective, document adaptive behavior.
Improvements in CNC machine tools depend on the refinement of adaptive control, which is the automatic monitoring and adjustment of machining conditions in response to variations in operation performance.
