2020 car comparison thread

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.

Wow, the Williams rear wing looks like a barn door in comparison to the others!
The impossible often has a kind of integrity which the merely improbable lacks.

I think they decided to save the money of desigining/fabricating a one off wing.

Maybe a sign that they are way behind on floor development? To still hit the downforce target to keep the tires a bit alive... they need this shovel.

Sounds like a reasonable theory to me.

That shows the work Mercedes did on the sidepods - look how much smaller it all is to the rear from the S of the Syntium logo. Compare that with last year's which is really lumpy in comparison. No doubt that was helped by the change to the high sidepod entry allowing the radiators to be further forward because they'll be a bit steeper.
