If you're suggesting that the floor is so easily stallable, I'd suggest that they would be more likely to err on the side of a firmer platform.godlameroso wrote: ↑Sun Dec 22, 2019 3:04 pmPerhaps a little bit of rake will be needed just for balance, the shift in rake at speed may also have very interesting effects on that balance. Particularly roll, and pitch.CAEdevice wrote: ↑Sat Dec 21, 2019 10:39 pmI am simulating a car (not a F1, it is nearer to a F3) with a F1 2021 floor layout: I am pretty sure (as you wrote on the article) that the optimum rake will be around 0°, no matter if the front wing will be (a bit) more distant from the ground. You will have a significant drag reduction and you don't have a diffuser peak to balance.
What if more, not less body roll and pitch is favorable to the 2021 generation of aero rules. It would certainly force drivers to adapt a new style of driving, pitching and rolling the cars to set up for corners.
Very light brake application on corner entry to get the front end to turn in, and having to semi inertial drift the turns to get the most of the aero platform.
Current gen cars actually have a fair bit of compliance through corners compared to most other race cars, particularly at the rear, and it's the floor heigh that allows that to work as well as it does.
That being said I would subsequently expect that exploiting this floor format to its maximum will see some new kinds of out of the box thinking as most high budget series have not been playing around with full floor tunnels.
