But yeah, thanks for hitting my initial post with a downvote and saying I was wrong, when Red Bull did not have chassis horns whatsoever all the way up to Spa, whereas the W10 had them for almost the entire season, sans the initial launch spec.
Think it’s really childish how you try to weaponize those downvotes, as opposed to just having a civil discussion, where we could've clarified our positions without being adversarial. I’m done interacting with you on this forum.
I could care less about downvotes. All I care about is the truth and making sure people aren't spreading fake news.
Don't take downvotes so personally, or consider them weaponized, that is childish. Downvotes are allowed on this forum especially with the courtesy of adding a reason. Especially when the reason is justified. You and Dan have a tendency to put words into people's mouth. That is a trait that I despise, I see it happen in the workplace when people say "well he said this" when in fact the individual they are putting down never did. I've never claimed who invented the horns, and as I've proven already, they existed far before the W10. The fact that you didn't remember the RA108 in 2008 automatically makes me think you only tout what you claim to know and then when you're proven wrong you try to use the usual antics and tactics to belittle the person who has proven you wrong.

The RB15 did not have these. However, if we're talking about copying, the RB16 copied the W10 by putting them on the RB16 this year. They also copied the Mercedes "cape" solution.
It's just that you and Dan never like to admit that Red Bull is doing something better than Mercedes and try to spin it to you liking. The contoured horns in the current Formula was in fact developed and researched by Red Bull and Mercedes looked at theirs and then looked at Red Bulls and thought, hrmm, maybe there's is better...
