flex on front and rear wing are predetermined and aren't allowed to exceed a certain flexibillity
It's not just the flexing of the rear wing, but also (as you mentioned) a soft rear suspension. You can tell by the lack of rake on this pictures compared to the rake at low speeds.LuisFeF1 wrote: ↑Tue Oct 01, 2019 7:02 pmLook at the rear wing at high speed.
Soft rear suspension, don't you think?

Wow, that's some borderline cheating!
There is, not only for the RW but for many other parts as well.JordanMugen wrote: ↑Mon Oct 07, 2019 9:54 pmWow, that's some borderline cheating!
A rear wing that lowers its angle of attack at speed, then returns to its proper position for corners, sounds like quite an advantage.
Is there no deflection test for the rear wing?
Yes, there is a deflection test, but the way the wings are designed with the cantered endplates and front mounts they twist down and out and lower the rear wing from not just the downforce but the drag generated by the wing as well, that's why that style of endplate has been adopted almost universally.
