What, a new engine, reintroduction of active suspension, and an aero overhaul will cost less than a DDD ban?
Is that why the pad on his hand was black? It might be made of metallic material. But it seems a bit dangerous. "Look! no hands!" at 150mph?
I heard Brundle say it was just a hole, bu I could be wrong.
Can someone explain to me why it's called a 'Blown Rear Wing'? What does 'Blown' mean? (it sounds kinda weird to me)
I heard the FIA was going to ban the F-Duct for the next season. I was thinking... wasn't it easier to just ban it this year instead of making every team spend bucketloads of money copying McLaren's duct, which be useless next year?
You could. Limit the complexity of aerodynamics, allow active suspension (which was once in use in F1 and is used in other series, so it only has to be updated/adapted) -both at the same time cutting costs (less wind tunnel testing, re-using already existing hardware) and making overtaking easier- switch back to smaller turbo engines and, most of all, stop fiddling with the rules every season. If there's a loophole, let there be one. Don't close it and thus re-start development.
But that wouldn't be politically correct. One team spend money, had great idea and at the end they would be informed that they can't use it. That isn't a good way either IMO.
Anyway if anyone noticed, McLaren were running different exhaust outlets on their cars this weekend.
Right (the one from the car launch):
