What do you guys think of the latest proposals for 2008?
There's talk by Max of not only reducing the downforce by 80% or so, but also giving the teams a maximum downforce figure, thereby bringining the backmarker teams aero up towards the leaders. Also, the FIA wants to allow moveable aero, to promote overtaking in dirty air, outlaw TC, Launch control, etc and allow hybrid systems on the car to regenerate braking energy into a HP boost.
The aero ideas to me sound fantastic. They will allow us to be on par with the leaders (downforce wise) for minimal dollars and wind tunnel time. And the moveable aero will make for more overtaking and better racing. I dont know how we'll go in terms of hybrid technology, but I'm guessing that would most likely be developed by the engine manufacturers, so that's out of our hands.
Roll on 2008! :D
