You can generate more DF at Higher speeds.
Not with the tapered front wing.
Do you think mclaren are working on a red bull/merc front wing, as James key said that style is the optimal
I’m sure they are evaluating it, the problem is whether that type of wing would work with the rest of the package... There is interaction between the front wing, the suspension and the bargeboards... The current setup is designed to work with the flow of air that the current wing generates, it would be a very drastic change to go for a different wing concept.
The current concept seems to be working well, of course there’s still a lot of development needed, but it was really impressive to watch Sainz go for 60+ laps on the hard tires and maintain a very steady rhythm throughout that whole stint.
