great comparison, i took the liberty to brighten it a bit so the diffusers show also
I tried ...

Merc 378 (last year calculated as 376, same this year so it's just 2cm off)
the ellipses give me the center of the wheel/the axle AND allow me to (roughly) find the middle of the car, this is where is 'measure' the wheel and then the wheelbase in pixels which gives me the length in cm
The results aren't precise of course, they nevertheless give an idea of relations between the wheelbases (maybe ... lol) and the Merc is just 0.5% off - given the low resolution i'd say that's not too bad
It's on the F1 site!
Is there a Merc vs Ferrari from this angle?RZS10 wrote: ↑Thu Mar 15, 2018 5:24 pmI've used the stuff i did for the previous posts and made different comparisons of the cars from each group ... just keep in mind that those cars were in different positions so this is far from representative, it's impossible to scale/skew them to match each other perfectly
hey thanks for the workRZS10 wrote: ↑Tue Mar 13, 2018 3:38 pmI tried ...
It's useful in order to compare individual cars to each other
Haas, Merc and RBR work ok because of very similar position on track
Same for Williams, STR, Ferrari and Renault (and maybe McL)
Judging by those pics the Williams, Ferrari, STR and Renault should have a very similar wheelbase, McL slightly shorter.
In the other group it's MGP>>RBR and Haas
The Force India is too far to the right to compare it.
The front and rear projections are determined from the wheel centre line. You can't have a longer car without having a longer wheel base. If the cars are the same overall length, they must have the same wheel base. Unless someone is using less than the allowed plan areas of front and rear wings, and that's unlikely.
