It was basically a targeted attack by one team wrapped in safety outcries, to hide how bad of a job they did. In the end, they hit the wrong team - and still couldn't beat them.Stu wrote: ↑Fri Nov 25, 2022 7:56 amThe logic behind TD039 being introduced mid season now looks either lame or targeted. Effectively it was a mid-season re-interpretation of a technical rule; it is now being released that certain front & rear wing interpretations that were legal were allowed to continue, but will now be outlawed for 2023 on. I’m not sure that I see the where the difference is. All three were ‘technically legal’, all three offered a performance enhancement, all three were trying to circumvent the intent of the regulations, only one was acted upon mid-season.
Running the car on the edge is racing, if that includes some more discomfort to boost performance - any driver will take it. If the discomfort is too big and you need to back off - tough luck, others did a better job with their car. Obviously, some teams didn't want to accept that.
