Yes they are. Both by teams' agreement and by the final written technical regulations.Correct me if I'm wrong but with the KERS returning and the moving rear wings I though the Double Decked Diffusers and F-Ducts were scrapped?
I don't know if they're banned in the rules but I think the teams agreed to get rig of the two?
Ferrari, McLaren, Red Bull, Renault, Mercedes, Force India (possibly, not sure) and Williams.So which teams do you guys think will use KERS this year?
Yes, for 2010. Pay attention.I thought FOTA agreed not to use KERS. Just imagine if HRT gained a huge advantage.
A long process indeed but we are now reaching the final straight with the MGP W02 and look forward to sharing our new design with our fans. ?We have probably tested five different versions this year but we are now ready to apply the final livery to the first 2011 car.? The Silver Arrows legend lives on?
since the rules state there can be no connection between the sharkfin and the rear spoiler, F-duct will be hard to achieve, but i'm sure someone will find a clever solution for the double diffusor!yea, im betting that mercedes has some kind of F-duct thing. remember, its not IF you break the rules but how good you are at it and, in the case of formula 1, how well you can BEND the rules or find the holes. mercedes seems to be good at finding the holes.
and thats why we watch F1 (well, one of the reasons! lol)since the rules state there can be no connection between the sharkfin and the rear spoiler, F-duct will be hard to achieve, but i'm sure someone will find a clever solution for the double diffusor!
a moving rear wing thats also being diffused? think about what that would do?No F-duct, what would be the point when the rear wing can move?
Diffuser however is where it's at.
but, and i wouldnt be surprised if it isnt being tried by someone, they didnt say you couldnt diffuse the FRONT wing. i know it sounds extreme but this IS F1 we are talking about.I think what he meant was that a team - like for example Mercedes - will likely come up with something new we haven't seen before like what we saw in the 'F-duct' last year.
Connecting the shark fin and rear wing will be banned in 2011 anyway so you would get extremely little effect even if you tried, routing it differently like Mercedes did.
Also, it's agreed between FOTA that no team will be doing a DDD/elaborate diffuser.
