In a near-spec series like that, a 1%gain makes you champion. It's going to be a copycat season for sure if they are all so similar that their aero ideas will easily adapt to other teams.JordanMugen wrote: ↑Sun Jun 27, 2021 11:48 pmI note Newey said (apparently) that there "isn't much to find" in these 2022 aero regulations?
Would it be fair to expect all the 2022 F1 cars to all have more or less the same aerodynamic performance properties (like, in the extreme case, in say Indycar where they are all exactly identical), and the points of difference in competitiveness to be centred around suspension tuning and power units?
Although, the gearbox housing and suspension geometry will stay play a role in aerodynamic performance in F1...
Mercs customer teams all converge independently on the same-ish concept, and.there are protests..
