I have to admit to be a technologicaly ignorant but I did find the whole thing very interesing to read - I agree with siffert though for me the best thing about this is the fact the cars will look far better!

I'm not sure we will even notice a 7.5cm difference and the designers will certainly maximise the height. Anyone know when the regs last required the noses to be this low?

A more sensible rule would have been that the end, or lowest point, of the nose cone must be level with the flat plane of the front wing - that would have given the designers something to think about.
