So 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 :P :P Hureyyyy !!!
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.

Commentary channel is too loud compared to trackside sounds.

The actual trackside microphones are excellent and easily capture the sound.

Area with good development potential.

They improved this area over last year, but there is still a fair bit of turbulence and flow separation, and developing the circled area would help massively.

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.
