Whether or not Newey backed by Red Bull can show it’s main affect is aero is a little beside the point for this year, as the fia have already allowed it. As time goes on however, if we see any racing, the mercs are likely to one, two what’s left if the fezzers and Red Bull can’t find enough space for it. The ingenuity’s a doddle as the rack merely slides fore and aft because the wheels only migrate a few degrees. Those degrees though have very broad shoulders and the exact amount of downforce can be piled on top of them to neutralise aero balance from lights out to flag. Rough estimate, five, six laps; two seconds down the road.
Plus, if the mercs are really canny they could do what the fezzers were upto with the ffm and earn themselves a settlement to gain extra heritage or maybe even a veto!
The paddock doth work atrociously.
So too does daimler Stuttgart, from what I hear!
