This is Force India’s Tripe T-wing Design

At the start of the 2017 F1 season, the T-wing design emerged as the solution most F1 teams adapted to smooth the air towards the rear wing. A simple T-wing design was followed by double element, more complex T-wings being introduced at races.

McLaren took it further when they introduced an oval design, which was also snapped up by a few other teams.

Here at the Monaco GP this weekend, Force India have taken the oval concept up a notch and introduced a triple element T-wing design, having not run any sort of a T-wing thus far.

It remains to be seen if Force India will actually run it for the entire weekend, and I know it isn’t the most aesthetically pleasing design. Yes, I am aware it looks like someone left a coat hanger on the back of an F1 car, I’ve heard all the jokes.

But when a team brings in an update, it is crucial to push designs and determine the performance extracted from it. I’m all for new designs and I’d love to hear what Force India got out of this experiment.
