Presumably after the suction point, the diffuser angle can no longer exceed the standard critical angle?
It doesn’t need to as the diffuser fills the space, it can be horizontal. It becomes all about the volume of the diffuser space.
After watching I was left with two questions...
1) What effect would running the fan backwards be?
Would it be beneficial for drag reduction?
2) How exactly are they making this happen on F1 cars (as the diffusers on most appear to be maximising the legal space).
I can think of a few ways, but not sure how legal any of them would be!!
Common sense is not as common as stupidity, but it is better to be uninformed than to be mid-informed...
