    Caught this vid on FB the other day. What's the consensus - more reliance on mechanical grip over aero should increase the possibility of overtaking and improve racing?

    I guess that's the theory, and make the cars look more interesting. They should be 3-5 seconds quicker a lap just on more grip straight out of the box and who knows how fast at the end of the season so they better build up those neck muscles.

    Utterly unfounded but have a good feeling for Ferrari this coming year. Will doubtless eat my words later. I guess with such big changes coming in I find it hard to believe they would have been against Ferrari's wishes......

    Any idea what the 'cage' is on Hamiltons car? Is it to simulate running in dirty air? It's certainly not for looks.

    It's a correlation testing device.

    Does the real aero flow match the theoretically modelled CFD predictions and wind tunnel testing results.
