Especially what are the top teams doing different in their designing compared with the efficiency tracks?
This time it's downforce without compromises (almost). So I'm maximizing the Rear Wing (with new aerofoils) and widening Front Wing tunnels for faster flow evacuation.
But still, if I had new ideas about the diffuser, I would keep developing it because its downforce potential is pretty high. Also, efficiency might not be so important now, but it's still better than a draggier solution.

So, for a bit of inspiration for you guys, has anyone thought about trying out an “infinity wing”?
As CAEdevice said, width is a factor in our case. But there is more: curving front wing edges upwards would encourage air to spill underneath it, which might be more detrimental overall.
I'm currently going with Peugeout endplates.
