The only warning that i got from the first race was the holes on the nose. Since i dont have them anymore i wonder what is my repeated offense.
Yes, you should read rule 9.6 a bit more closely. These small wings are like the opposite of your holes. You have now violated that rule twice.
Just to be clear, we are talking about the horns right?

Hi, could you share a detailed image of the horns? I have doubts about rule 9.6 too. From the pictures released by the staff I can't understand, I see (I guess) only one closed section when that area is sectioned with a plane normal to X, but the images are not clear.

And from above?

Edit: the dovetail-like shape, view from abov, actually generates three sections when cut from a normal x plane ... sorry! However, the concept can be corrected and made legal for the next race

Wow, great race and great video.

Yes, "someone" (will we ever meet in person or... by name?) designed a very very good car, with everything at the right place and very well modeled.

Congratulations!

The beast impressed me, but... I think that the challenge is still open.

Hey, i can see my house from the video!

Congratulations to LegendaryM! Awesome debut =D>
The car is as fast as it looks.

Good thing that the whole group is packed together, at least in terms of potential performance.
This is the tightest championship ever!

I'm once again not super happy, this time because i'm experiencing some correlation issues.
But the result is good enough. The championship is very open :twisted:

Yes, once more a great race. Big thanks to everyone in the competition and super huge thanks to Max and Christian. I think the more detailed lap time simulation and the presentation are just fantastic.
And congratulations to LegendaryM.
We have a new comer that managed to score a penalty in the first race and one that took a victory!

I am getting better.
The page has been updated. So, now you see the championship results and everything. In the race report, we are only missing the full scrutineering results. I left the details on my workstation and will not see that noisy thing again until Thursday. This means, you will also only get the reports on Thursday.

Ah, and please let me know what CFD image you are interested from this race. For now, we have to stick to one from the report. As soon as I have finished the rake feature for you guys, I am open to detailed nicely rendered images.

Good race everyone, the field is definitely starting to stack up.

Was hoping to see more progress with a 22% downforce increase and a better cop balance for R02 but it wasn't quite enough to be in the mix for Monza due to the drag on the car but I'm hopeful it'll be there for the final 3 races with some additional updates that are in the works

By the way, here is the lap sim "telemetry" for the top 3:

I didn't realise there was simulated DRS function. How is the reduction in drag value calculated, flat value or scaled in accordance of RW drag?

Wow, I'm delighted. Thanks everyone for you kind words, I didn't expect to win this race, I was having some mysterious CFD issues before where an almost identical car would give +/- 0.2 cl, but it looks like the official results ended up on the plus side of that. As I said before though, I did let a fillet run outside the legality box on the floor so we'll have to wait and see what LVDH says about scrutineering.
