What kind of comment is that? Would you care to explain why this is a better solution? Or are you going by the "other teams are using it so it must be better" thought process?Godius wrote:I've read somewhere that they are finally stepping into the five+ element front wing league. They really need to btw.
Before they want to do that they will first need to have reclaimed the lost downforce at the rear of the car. For 2014 there is no more diffuser-blowing, smaller diffuser-height, smaller rear-wings and no beam wing. The total lost at the back is way more than the loss at the front; at the start of the season they may end up looking for efficient ways to lose front-downforce in order to balance the car.trinidefender wrote:… the neutral section is the same width (correct me if I am wrong) and the outer width has been cut down. This means that designers have less wing area to work with. To counteract this designers may decide to go with more elements for the entire wing area to run a higher angle of attack (AoA) to make up lost downforce from wing width reduction.
I based that on the pictures in this article and a vague recollection of having read it elsewhere. However comparing the 2013 regs and the 2014 regs, there is no change to the wording of regulation 3.12.7 which sets the diffuser height. I apologise for the misinformation.lio007 wrote:Really?
