F1 has got to the stage where it is so boring that even Toto Wolff is not going to the race this weekend.
Well, it is always interesting to see what happens when you change up the aerodynamics of a car. When they went to ground effects some drivers could never fully adjust, when they removed ground effects some drivers lost their edge. If the cars become difficult and unpredictable to drive, some drivers will adjust and some will not be able to. While the younger less experienced drivers tend to have an easier time adjusting, it is very different from person to person. It could create considerable turmoil in the field.“It's going to be a real nasty piece of work to drive. I think it’s something that if they allowed a little more freedom would allow us to sort that out, but still retain the intent of the ground effect car and low following wake.”
“Aerodynamically it’s going to be quite unstable. I don’t think that’s a nice thing to have. You want cars that are a bit more predictable, so that drivers can attack, be sure what they’ve got underneath them, they know what’s going to happen, they can drive the car at the limit knowing that it’s stable at the limit. From what I see at the moment none of those statements are true for 2021. It’s more about what’s happening at the front of the car, and where the dirty air is going, right into the tunnels. The car currently is creating its own dirty air.”
Racing Point Formula 1 team technical director Andrew Green believes that 2021 cars will be “nasty pieces of work to drive” due to the airflow off the front wing making them unpredictable.uk.motor1.com
