F 1 cars will have simplified front wings and bargeboards, along with other smaller changes, this year in a bid to decrease their sensitivity in filthy atmosphere and make the standard of hurrying better.
The fluctuations are a precursor to a much bigger car design revamp that is planned for 2021 as a portion of a larger overhaul of F1.
Tost told Motorsport.com the F1, that introduced an upgraded set of higher-downforce rules in 20 17 to create the speediest grandprix cars , should take the opportunity to eliminate the reliance upon down force.
“We’ve got as much down force, which means high corner speeds, no one can follow due to the dirty air behind and we have hardly braking zones,” said Tost. “How should you overtake?
“which means the FIA, FOM — also there really are the experienced people over there, like Ross Brawn, like Pat Symonds — they all understand exactly what you should do: to come down with aero sidetogether with the down force.
“I’d cut minimum 40 50 % of the present down-force, to produce the car much more unstable from the corners.
“Then people find that drivers have to struggle the auto.
“Automobiles will soon be faster on the straight, you might have opportunities to overtake some body — as of [raised ] braking — also you’ll be able to follow at the corners.
“This law might be an easy task to become realised. They just have to want it.”
Tost reported the drivers are the only individuals who”texture and recognise” the functioning of the present cars.
He argued that this renders the higher cornering speeds redundant with regard to exactly what buffs experience and only contributes to a scene that is negative.
However, Tost fears that far like a mooted cost cap — that he is in favour of, but bigger teams are showing signs of immunity towards — lowering down-force levels substantially could be blocked.
Whoever is contrary to his proposition, Tost said:”The teams! Never ask the teams.
“[The rule-makers need to] come with the regulations[say]’accept or go’. However, they ask the teams.
“They come to the Technical Working Group. Engineers. Never ask the engineers!”
