Yes and no. It is compelled to go beyond 1150mm ahead of the front axle line (the picture is ~1350mm which is to the maximum overhang). The front wings apex has to be between 1320mm and 1350mm. If you move the nose tip back it would expose the mainplane which is only really an advantage of you keep the whole of the bottom surface free.
There are limits on the overhang (as above) they're just longer than 2021. The nose in 2021 has to be at least 1075mm long up to 1200mm long, everyone just runs the shortest they can, while 2022 is 1150-1359mm. So I admit it is shortest possible 2021 nose vs longest possible 2022, but I think these are probably about as long as they will be (give or take 20-25mm).Stu wrote: ↑Tue Jan 12, 2021 8:08 amWhen viewed like that it makes me wonder why they do not put a limit on front overhang, it would naturally limit the front wing aero & the front floor aero as the nose structure (and therefore the forward chassis structure would need to be lower - particularly as the nose height is mandated).
The increase in height of the tyres is ridiculous!!
The tyres are ridiculous. Bigger even than Le Mans. The teams didn't want really low profile so they bulked up the sidewall, typical F1 "compromise".
