"The F1 Commission has voted through last-minute changes to the 2019
Formula 1 aerodynamic package to aid overtaking, despite opposition from
several teams.

"A proposal to change front wing endplates to help cars follow each
other, along with a bigger rear wing flap and therefore a stronger DRS
effect, has been passed.

An extra package involving bargeboards was not agreed to."

It appears as many as six teams were opposed, but the various other
representatives held the balance. Not official until the fat WMSC sings.

It's a joke. Farting around with end plates and even larger wings. Are
those the huge changes Ross Brawn has been promising?

I haven't seen a comparison, but there seems to be more passing this year. Probably because Renault and Ferrari seem to have finally closed most of the gap to Merc.

Thank you for that anecdotal evidence.
Oh. Throw that apple in the garbage.

It's the fans who want more passing not F1.

Yes; aerodynamicists have work hard to produce an airflow that HINDERS cars following and overtaking. Common sense.
