Nice thread, but I think you misunderstand a couple of things. The 2008 front wing and the DDD are two of the very things that prevent cars from following each other closely!ESPImperium wrote:1) Front Wing: I much preferred the 2008 spec front wing, so id like to see them brought back, but closer to the ground, almost 2009 low, but not as low as that.
3) Diffuser: Allow DDD, but these should be less steep than a conventional Single Diffuser creating less downforce. Which would be allow SDD cars to have a steeper angle to try and get teams to use them.
On the 2008 front wing, the big scoop they all had created a lot of downforce, however, in turbulent air its performance dramatically dropped off. Hence the 2009 front wing regs, where instead of a scoop, there is basically a plain wing section which cannot be changed.
The DDD is evil and the enemy of close racing. It dramatically increases the amount of turbulent air the following car has to deal with, which in turn means the cars can't follow each other through the corners. A steeper angle on a SDD would create a similar effect - more turbulence.
So, surely if you want to improve F1, two things you don't want are 2008 front wings and DDD's.
