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.

I suspect its just a scrutineering sticker.

Expect Mission Foods branding this week and next though, it was announced back at the Indy sponsor launch they would have an F1 presence at these two rounds.

Hi All

Is it just me or does the rear lower wisbone/driveshaft tunnel have an angle of attack that produces lift instead of downforce?
