Are there any studies on the wake produced by the driver's helmet? I mean, beyond "very messy" or "created probles feeding the airbox". I mean real wind tunnel or simulation work. I tried google and could not find a single CFD diagram on it, certainly nothing in between the golf ball model and the streamlined cycling helmets.
Wind turbines are cool, elegant and magnificent. TANSTAAFL!
Helmet with splitter (similar to the one used by Button and a few drivers back in the 90's)
Some times it's better to use the search feature of this forum (altough most of our threads appear in the first page of Google searches nowadays, sometimes they are interred in page 3000, specially the older ones).
