A BIG improvement.
Extra drag is a bad thing? Why exactly?
As if you could possibly tell at this stage whether or not racing will be better or worse.
Go out and get some sun and fresh air. All this negativity is doing you no good.
It would be a big improvement if they put a proper front wing, not that fugly giant snowplough.
And not a ridiculous A1GP http://www.slotforum.com/images/A1-GP/2 ... _HiRes.jpg
And regarding the drag, FIA's own researches and other serioius studies showed that we should reduce the drag, not only that induced by the wings but also the tires etc, for many reasons.
And what about the weight? 7222 kilos? come on
And yes this might make the racing worse, many insiders aknowleged that, including Charly Whitting who even said that's no problem as long as we can use DRS and shitty tires to enhance racing.
And how can a purist and tech guys like you defend these changes? they are superficial and rushed and costy.
There is plenty of reasons to be negative about these rules if you love f1. F1 could choose a better way. They could study other interesting alternatives.
Unfortunately, F1 yielded under the pressure of some fans, the gp organisers, the marketing people etc.
And do you think the big teams like RBR and Mclaren voted these rules for the sake of sport? lol no they want it because it suits their raky aero philosophy and their large FW. Even Force India became more consensual and docile in the strategy group because 2017 suits them.
But this is OT.
