“I felt as though I was driving in a tunnel. The whole circuit became a tunnel… I had reached such a high level of concentration that it was as if the car and I had become one. Together we were at the maximum. I was giving the car everything – and vice versa.” (Ayrton Senna)

Four F1 teams tweaked ‘flexi’ front wing designs

Four F1 teams tweaked ‘flexi’ front wing designs

Four teams made modifications to their front wing designs ahead of the recent Canadian grand prix.

In the days after Monaco, we reported that the FIA was clamping down once again on the well-trodden area of so-called ‘flexi wings’ in formula one.

Spain’s El Confidencial reported that a new 50 Newton-metre load test would be applied for front wing flexibility by FIA scrutineers in Canada.

Germany’s Auto Motor und Sport now reports that the new test was actually to the tune of 60 Newton-metres, on suspicion that some teams were getting as much as 10 centimetres of aero-efficient flexibility from their front wings.

From Canada, only 3 millimetres of flex would be tolerated during the new load test. Red Bull, Mercedes, Lotus and Toro Rosso all took new designs to Canada, with the main modification being small ‘supports’ between wing elements.

Correspondent Michael Schmidt said all four teams passed the scrutineering tests.
