Ok i´ll hold you to it then i suppose.Juzh wrote:@sectorone
eau rouge won't be flat. I guarantee it. Maybe, just maybe red bull could go flat with that underpowered renault, but certainly not any merc powered stuff.
Absolute downforce at the apex may be higher this year (which I truly doubt anyways) however that won't help them if they need higher speeds to achieve that...SectorOne wrote:I think every single car will go flat through there given it´s dry without any problems at all.
They will most likely enter the corner with a higher speed then last year which decreases the downforce delta from last year.
Aero may have improved dramatically since the 90s, but its also far more restricted. The 2004ish cars had pretty much the most downforce of any F1 cars ever, and the 2000s cars weren't too far from that. These cars have lost a substantial amount of downforce even from the 2013 cars which probably didn't have as much as a 2000s car.F1 cars have been taking Eau Rouge flat out since early 00s(Remember the BAR crashes in '99, anyone?). Aero has improved so much since then that I seriously doubt that any car on the grid wouldn't be able to take it flat out with ease.
Yea why not.Juzh wrote:It's a "bet" then?

I doubt that to be honest. I don´t think any 2004 car can hold a candle to the RB6 for example.beelsebob wrote:The 2004ish cars had pretty much the most downforce of any F1 cars ever,
You may be right about the RB6, that was certainly the closest a modern car has come, if not slightly better. But a 2014 car has not even close to the downforce of an RB6.SectorOne wrote:I doubt that to be honest.

I also don´t think it can hold a candle to the spaceships of 2008.
Strap a BMW or Ferrari V10 in an RB6 and it would annihilate the 04 cars, i´m certain.
