But sidepod shapes and other aero-critical components aren't. So the aero ability of last year's RBR and Ferrari shouldn't be a simple bolt on for Haas etc. They need to do their own bodywork, wings etc., and that affects performance - if it didn't , the top three wouldn't have been constantly evolving theirs.
I agree with you, nevertheless from a Aero perspective, knowing that you will be getting the same engine and suspension components and with most of the Aero been easy to analyze during the year, you would expect them to follow what worked for the previous car... I’m not saying that’s the case and I don’t know how easy it is at the end of the day, but it will be interesting to see if that translates into a huge leap in lap times for those teams.
