Higher downforce. No DRS benefit. The top speed dpesnt get higher but he will feel a bigger difference in speed when it opens up.
One of the advantages of being able to live with more rear tyre slip means a driver can take this low drag rear wing option. Sometimes it can back-fire though.
your post is a bit misleading in my view
being able to live with more rear tyre slip
is not an issue for any driver .Actually a
clear and honest oversteer characteristic is quite easy to control , if you have enough opposite lock available.
A tyre has a certain amount of grip available ,which can be split up into longitudinal and lateral load bearing capacity . Braking and Throttle application reduce lateral grip capacity .
So yes , different driving approaches lead to different car feedbacks .
if you brake deep into the corners you will need extra front grip ,to retain lateral grip while decelerating , if you finish braking before turnin , you have all grip of the front tyre for cornering .
But you cannot have more than optimum slip angle for a given vertical load and tyre temp and expect more grip .Grip peaks at optimum slip angle ,period .Exceeding this , and you lose grip )road holding capacity.It goes without saying Lewis is not quicker by living with higher slip angles at the rear .
