Not that simple I'm afraid. First of all cars understeer in medium & high speed corners not low speed. For the latter you need mechanical grip as aero is not as significantly influential. Barcelona is also a high df track and the RW used was actually one of the least draggy, hence the s1 performance. I reckon they're just trying different aero setups in new vs old to more accurately assess each element's impact. This can also be to test possible setup configuration for Montreal, who knows.Bisonas wrote: ↑Wed May 15, 2019 2:37 pmSo they are testing the new FW with the old RW. Something they didn't actually do on FP1 or FP2 i think. They went head to head with New New and Old Old.
Imagine to find out that lowering the rear DF actually balances the car better and solves the S3 understeer problems in slow corners.
Imagine to find out that they have just overdone it with the Rear DF Hureyyyy !!!

The car stopped on the track, issue not specified though. Maybe they’ll say in the testing report in a few hours.
I’m really not comfortable with their Indy 500 foray this year.
I dont think he will get a good result this year indy is very tough race and mclaren are basicaly like an amateur team there
