    Nice and clear ! Thanks for this video. As a complement, would you know of a video that show the actual air flow around and behind the front wing ?

      Thanks, Pierre! I only know one off the top of my head and it was done by Sauber. Here’s a link to a screen grab of the CFD image they had in the video – https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=f1+cfd+front+wing&tbm=isch&imgil=eQ0GI1dWzsTnvM%253A%253BDTAT49QdsYJ6TM%253Bhttp%25253A%25252F%25252Fwww.totalsimulation.co.uk%25252Fwp%25252Fsecrets-formula-1-front-wing%25252F&source=iu&pf=m&fir=eQ0GI1dWzsTnvM%253A%252CDTAT49QdsYJ6TM%252C_&usg=__ks5tNN6GcLR4CTN5Vufi85kh9wc%3D&biw=1366&bih=638&ved=0ahUKEwia–OjtprRAhWDe1AKHfu2AdkQyjcINA&ei=fYplWNrIPIP3wQL77YbIDQ#imgrc=eQ0GI1dWzsTnvM%3A
