Now seen on Channel 4's F1 coverage, how is Mercedes cheat steering
system not illegal, changing the toe angle and hence contact patch is an
aero aid, and other than DRS, the driver is not allowed to change the
aero on a car.
No wonder the cheats are so far in front of everyone in the Austrian GP
1. How is changing the contact patch an AERO change?
2. Steering ALWAYS changes the angles of the wheels: that's its purpose.
3. Steering the wheels ALWAYS changes the aerodynamics of the car. It's
not its purpose directly, but I can guarantee you that if there is a way
to get a positive interaction from steering the front tires and the
downforce the car generates, teams are already doing it.
