thanks for the diagram, i'm trying to sum up every bodywork paragraph and its implication.
For the moment i'm struggling a bit with the 3.8.4 rule and whether it bans ramp wings or not (i think that i does it indeed).
If someone has a drawing of an actual F1 cars with correct dimensions that would help!
I would need a 3 view one (top, side, bottom).
So far i came with this, please correct if you think i'm wrong:
