Red Bull RB16

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.

Max’s rear wing was juggling around like jelly today. First time I’d noticed it

Small drive in a van. No post man "handling" the packages, so no danger :)

Imagine being one of the drivers. That view must put a smile on your face.

It will have been team members handling it the whole way, not some £5/hr yaahoo. :lol:

Who can build a living room faster challenge? But seriously, it would be funny if Max and Alex got an instructions sheet and had to put together their own cars.

Looks like the entire wing together with the endplates are flexing backwards
re-uploaded the video, now with reference to rear suspension compression by downforce as well that would reduce rake angle and all the other downforce elements although floor proximity and ground effect definitely much higher as all the side elements would become even more effective
The upper control arms create a vortex that gets stronger as the suspension compresses.
Ok. I have 2 questions?
-how u know there is significant interactive vortex
-if so, where is it?
i guess i got 3rd Q also: :D
-in referenced video i cannot really spot any vortex on it, could u point me on it

Watching FP3 now, not sure if I'm imagining this, but it seems we are running much less rake at the moment..

At the end of the control arm, the way they're mounted on the upright, and proximity to the rear wing end plate and the upright winglets.

No wonder those slotted endplates broke, the endplates are damn near rubbing on the rear tire.

It’s amazing to see honestly, how much force is going through there. Looks like the tire would just pop of the wheel at any moment.....
