Red Bull RB16

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.

Yes, deeper “spoon” more shallow wing. Worked quite good for Leclerc in qualy.

Merc have gone with less wing this weekend as well. After seeing Ferrari’s success with running near-Monza levels of DF last weekend, I’m not surprised to see them both at least evaluating the approach.

Any idea, why they measure or watch FW deflection so often?

Maybe they're watching out for material fatigue since the wing is going through a large number of stress cycles because of the oscillation when driving over the kerbs.

Its detrimental for performance. And yeah especially when ur car is unstable and unpredictable. But i m sure u know that. I also thinking must be fatigue and data problem to model that FW correctly and accurately. Even more importantly when u doing constant setup and powertrain setting adjustments. u could lose calibration quite quickly i guess. Some balance issues could be solved systematically. I imagine. My 2 cents.

Indeed. That was one developed during the season stoppage. It didn’t really gave the upgrade back then but maybe now as they have remedied the main issue it will work? In any case, good sign that these parts are back.
