wing-gate revisited

(translated by Google)

The secret of the folding panel: Technology anger at McLaren and Red Bull


Formula 1 technology is again imminent trouble. McLaren has developed a front wing, which has a secret: He tilts at sufficient pressure on the horizontal axis. Red Bull has in Singapore - redrawn - one step extreme. Suzuka want the FIA ​​governing body look exactly.


Again and again the wings. Remember they still remember the endless discussions in the previous year? Red Bull ran for two years with a front wing, which buckled controlled at full speed. The pressure rose above a certain level, were lowered from the wing tips to the road.
Thus, under the wing was a tunnel that prevented the air flowed laterally. The air under the center of the car reached more efficiently towards the underbody and diffuser. Some other teams have tried to copy the Red Bull concept, but no one was nearly successful. At Ferrari occurred, for example, to unwanted oscillations. The wing was re-wrapped.


Development of flexible wing continues

Over the winter the FIA ​​tightened the criteria for the stress tests. Thus, the wings flutter had outlived its usefulness. Now conceded even Red Bull chief technical officer Adrian Newey, the existence of one of the flexible wing. He introduced the ban to be one of the reasons why the Red Bull RB8 is not as successful as its predecessor.
According to insiders Red Bull operation with Fgeln immense effort. It is said to have practically given for each route has its own, tailored to the type and route the output ratios wing type. The trick to have been hidden in the carbon structures that had to twist first before they were able to bend in the desired direction.
But the secret was obviously not only in the wings, but also in the stilts, to which the vanes are hung. When it became clear that the FIA ​​serious about new stress tests said that some teams had to construct new noses.
McLaren wing folds hinen

But what engineers have once learned, they do not forget again. In the Pacific was further researched in this area. McLaren apparently took the decisive gap. According to observers, the entire wing twist on the corresponding pressure on the horizontal axis. The new spoiler is one of the secrets of the superiority of the chrome-colored cars since the Hungarian GP.
How Auto Motor und Sport in its latest issue (issue 22/2012) reported, has now followed suit and Red Bull in Singapore. The wing may have been a reason for the silver-blue superiority. Other teams had no chance of winning.
Apparently Ferrari but has discovered the trick and the FIA ​​inspectors alerted. Then there were several discussions between the FIA ​​delegates and McLaren team boss Martin Whitmarsh. A closer look revealed that the two pylons of the nose to hold the main sheet of the wing with only one screw at the front edge. Around these can the entire wing to rotate about the transverse axis.
Folding panel provides better airflow to the diffuser

Since the 50 cm in the center of the wing in all cars must be the same shape, causes a rotation of the wing two things. With the regulations required buoyancy in this section is reduced. And the underbody is flown much more efficient. This in turn significantly more downforce at the rear.
Red Bull has recognized the McLaren-secret first competitor and immediately upgraded. The rotation will be even more extreme than the McLaren. Therefore, Red Bull has launched in Singapore, a new, slightly longer nose. The nose and the center section of the wing had to be matched to the changed flow in torsion.
It will be interesting how the technique Commissioners react to the new problem. Maybe they will perform in Suzuka torsion. If the wing to twist it at that, the nightmare is prohibited. Otherwise, a new arms race would begin, the only pointless costs money.
In the photo gallery we show you again based on images, such as the new generation of blades of Red Bull and McLaren looks.

I sure hope those comics are being posted with tongue-in-cheek irony.

Bendy wing, meet foldy wing. Charlie Whiting will have to devise a torsional test, I guess.

I like the line "What once is learned, cannot be unlearned." I wonder if the two front wing salvos (first bendy, then twisty) are only the first shots in a long war of making carbon fiber all over the body change according to need?

Martin Whitmarsh's somewhat smarmy denial:




No wing is infinitely rigid, eh? Well, just as McLaren have more class than Red Bull, so too are Martin Whitmarsh's verbal deceptions more dignified than Christian Horner's blatant lies.

#F1 I can now confirm that @MercedesAMGF1 will - like @Lotus_F1Team - run their DRD device in #Suzuka free practice to collect data.

interesting.....

Blame motorcycles. When Massa took the spring to the head in 09 Ferrari wanted Michael to sub for him, but he was injured from a moto racing accident.
I wonder what would've happened to his results, and career if he'd have gotten into the Ferrari then.

Thoughts while watching practice.

The championship is now between the two cheating front wings. Red Bull have a new, droopy nose this weekend. Better to rotate the wing. And surprise! All of a sudden, they're quick again. Game on with McLaren. Ferrari are toast.

Lewis Hamilton might win the title and jump from a winning team to a losing team.

Mercedes just hired Nicki Lauda to work/travel with the team and report back to the board. A spy. Hiring a disruptive presence like Lauda shows a complete lack of faith by the Mercedes board in Norbert Haug and Ross Brawn. When Lauda joined Jaguar, the team imploded. There's open speculation that Ross Brawn may leave Mercedes.

I think Mercedes are a mess. They only committed themselves to F1 because they could sign a big name driver, which is a crappy reason to stay in a sport. And they apparently believe F1 will remain committed to the V-6. What if Todt backtracks under pressure? And now they inject Nicki Lauda to be a spy for the board.

I think Hamilton is going to regret his move. Mercedes are not built to win.
