One can say history does sometimes repeat itself! Pat Symonds was crucial in the design of the 80’s Toleman of which Senna drove a spectacular race back in 1984. The Toleman had exploited a loophole in the regs allowing a double deck rear wing to sit with the main wing.
Today Williams rolled out a new rear wing that looks remarkably similar in concept, perhaps a loophole in the regs again? Unlikely but it’s nice to think that some creative minds are still at work in F1.
Alex Lynn took to the track with the pieces fitted and is likely that Williams are trying to generate the extra downforce 2017 regs will allow in order to understand the tyres and chassis.
