2021 car comparison thread

A place to discuss the characteristics of the cars in Formula One, both current as well as historical. Laptimes, driver worshipping and team chatter does not belong here.

The impossible often has a kind of integrity which the merely improbable lacks.

Don't forget there is a second element lower down the rear wing (just outside of view on this picture), so a direct comparison is impossible. Today (2009 and later) this element is forbidden.

Interesting picture! The opposite of the RB spoon wing; maybe points to how the airflow is different over that era of car or could be for structural reasons.
Common sense is not as common as stupidity, but it is better to be uninformed than to be mis-informed...
