New F1 proposals

Writing about web page http://www.fia.com/mediacentre/Press_Releases/FIA_Sport/2005/October/241005-01.html

Just so I can say "you heard it here first": this is what a Formula One car may look like from 2008, or even – optimistically – 2007 if every team agrees. (OK, 2008 it is then).

The big change is the design of the rear wing, to let cars follow one another much more closely and hence, hopefully, get a lot more overtaking. Slick tyres should make a comeback too!

The principle is to massively improve the ratio of mechanical grip (from the tyres) to aerodynamic grip (from the wings) – at the moment, aerodynamics disrupt the airflow so much that a car loses loads of front grip if it gets anywhere near a car in front. CFD simulations (see pic below) show the centreline air-pressure profile of the new rear-wing regulations – bottom – as much better than the current – top – one. If you're not technically-minded, trust me, it does.

With these regs, F1 should actually stand a chance of seeing some more overtaking again!
