Aston Martin AMR24

A place to discuss the characteristics of the cars in Formula One, both current as well as historical. Laptimes, driver worshipping and team chatter do not belong here.

I'm curious about these. It's obviously a non-rotating part, and looks like it's creating an outwash? Am I correct?

But isn't the wheel fitting over these with a cover that prevents outwash? What am I not understanding properly about the intended effect of these?

I haven't seen any other photos of a team with fins like this on the brake covers.

Thanks in advance for the more knowledgeable people who normally come to the rescue and answer these questions.
Like you said the wheel will spin. This will cause the air to spin in there and the rim will block the exit to the outside but I think that's trying to pull the air inwards instead of staying stagnant in an effort to decrease hotspots.
Ahhh, thanks, I didn't think about the effect of wheel spinning affecting them.

So it's more about brake temperature control than directing air. Interesting solution , and I remember the AMR23 having some brake temp issues.
In this picture, on the left tire on the upper right hand side of it, you can see the air egress brake duct.

The big vertical dropoff from the waterslides looks to have been reduced a bit. (B Sport picture)

AMuS - some great comparison shots with the old spec

I don't know if this was noted here before but there is a significant change to the floor leading edge inboard. Would love to see better pictures to compare changes more in detail.

Another thing that I've noted are new (not yet used during the race this season) winglets on the rear wing endplates. Solution used last year by Alpine and Aston, this year more teams have joined with their (very similar) designs.

I think we might see this RW being used by Aston on some high-downforce demanding tracks.

Im sure we'll get better photos, for now that is the best I could find.

That's just extra cooling. If anything, it would hurt aero. It's a must so they're gonna find ways to minimise that loss. You want as much hot air hitting the beam wing.

It's not particularly warm in China. Interesting. I would have thought that we would see this earlier. Is it really "extra cooling" or it is simply a redistribution of cooling outlets to optimize the existing cooling?

When you mentioned that I looked for pictures of the gills below the cannons at the rear. They're still there.

There was also mention that the didn't use all the upgrades in Japan. Maybe that's what they are. The turbine is there, maybe the just need better flow tgere. Whatever it is, it's not a big change.

I wonder if that front wing change they made at , was it race 2?, cleaned up the air flow to allow for that change.

Iirc saudi was something to do with front brake drum and Australia they adjusted the front wing flaps. I wonder what they saw in terms of development potential
