Haas VF-18 Ferrari

A place to discuss the characteristics of the cars in Formula One, both current as well as historical. Laptimes, driver worshipping and team chatter does not belong here.

Really short flap on the rear wing.

Back when DRS was first introduced (and the allowed angle change was less) a smaller flap was a good way to make it more effective (shed more drag).

Over the years rules changed and teams moved away from this style, maybe Haas is bringing it back for a couple KM/H at the end of the straights.

If I'm not mistaken there wasn't a fixed angle change for the DRS flap, but a fixed distance for the edge to travel, that's why a shorter flap was beneficial. If the fixed measure was the angle change, a bigger flap would shed more drag.

Kinda surprising that Haas has been more aggressive than Ferrari in a number of areas.

Diffuser in particular, i mean they started with Ferrari's last season diffuser (give or take).

It still has the protective film on it. That is why it still looks raw on the edges.

I notice Red Bull don't use such a windscreen, so I wonder how effective it is? :)

Usually it's there for driver comfort more than aero performance. It changes the aerodynamic forces on the helmet and can be more or less comfortable for each driver

Mercedes do but it's not as high as that one. Each car is different so the effectiveness will be individual to each car. Just because RedBull don't do it, doesn't mean a lot.

In the past Japanese GP Haas introduced a new floor and diffuser:
