The mirror needs support when the sidepod vane isn't attached. I wonder if that's a precaution against it snapping off if some accidentally leans on it.krizalid1001 wrote: ↑Thu Apr 11, 2019 2:35 pmNew FW endplate

Thank you! Great shot, btw. Looks similar to the Bahrain spec with the 3 hanging vanes. The upwash strakes may be slightly more pronounced compared to Bahrain, though. Always tough to tell via photos.Blaze1 wrote: ↑Thu Apr 11, 2019 6:09 pmhttps://imgr4.auto-motor-und-sport.de/M ... 546186.jpg
Do you think about that low DF RW tested by Russell on Bahrein test?
I didn't expect that wing in China, I just wanted to see the end plates, etc.atanatizante wrote: ↑Thu Apr 11, 2019 10:35 pmDo you think about that low DF RW tested by Russell on Bahrein test?
Nope, that was a Baku-spec RW and maybe they`ll try it in FP1 for further correlation and data gathering in regard of the new FW they have it for this race ...
More interesting to know is how much they could trim the China-spec RW regarding DF levels, bearing in mind that the new FW and particularly the new endplate will generate - indirectly - more airflow towards diffuser, hence more rear DF which in return will allow them to run a lower AoA RW and that`s the only way to match the Ferrari on that long straight!
Red Bull had to modify theirs as well.
What about the Williams front wing?
