I was intrigued by the Williams Teams discovery at the weekend that removing the Coanda exhaust system on the car whilst testing actually improved the cars handling/feel.
I’d love to see the opinions of those in the know on this – do designers and teams feel obliged to have the latest and greatest design quirk on the car and does it actually cause more problems than it solves in terms of driveability.
I remember in the early days of blowing exhaust gases into the diffuser how some teams experienced big driveability issues.
I wonder therefore quite how many bells and whistles on cars don’t actually improve the car. Controversial?…….
