i have sort of back tracked from Greenlantern101 point on the baku thread. i think raise the ride height or get rid of the zeropods & change the sidepods to "their" version of a red bull or Ferrari spec. so there is less floor to flex. then if they are still having issues then the are in great position with the FIA to demand active suspension
If all teams were suffering the FIA should take responsibility. If not, which is the case here, if impacted teams within the regs can protect their drivers at the risk of performance then I’m a bit horrified (but not shocked) it takes an FIA directive to make them do the right thing.
The cost cap in years of new regs certainly needs addressing though as the only outcome now is:
true but thats more to do with ferrari self destruction like 2010 2017 2018 & 2019. but much soon that expected. as leclerc should won at least 3 of the last 4 maybe goid case for all 4 & having a 33 - 45 pt lead in the championship
Porpoising is as a result of piss poor design work. This effect isn't new as a number of teams during the side skirts era experienced it.
We've spent a decade of F1 design where everything is about how much flex can we get away with and ground effect aero requires the exact opposite. It needs consistency and stiffness in order to perform.
Unfortunately, Mercedes appear to have gone down a design path that is going to be extremely difficult to redesign within the course of a season.
