Thanks for the information. Under the current F1 regulations the floor creates only about 60% of the downforce. Increasing the amount of downforce created by the floor by 25% would be a massive improvement.

On the subject of Gordon Murray's Fan Car...it's funny, we were actually discussing this over the weekend with a friend of mine who is getting a T50 (name?) and has a follow-up meeting with Mr. Murray this month.

I also thought the car was banned but it was actually voluntarily withdrawn by Mr. Ecclestone. The teams all got together and told him that if he ran the car in the next race, they would all withdraw and they'd be left alone to drive in in circles on an empty track. Good ole' F1 history from the horses mouth, once removed.

Great post!!
