However on Thursday, Honda moved along to Aldridge to gain approval to conduct a deflector much like this one used by Ducati at Qatar, which resisted the controversy that’s violated the stability over the Manufacturers Association (MSMA).
Aldridge did not homologate Honda’s winglet because he believed that the explanations written by Honda in regards to the most important use of the element violated the current regulations, a collapse that japan constructor clearly expected.
On Friday, Honda made a second try to homologate the piece and presented itself again to Aldridge, yet this time around with a different explanation on the functionality of the winglet. It would appear that Honda’s manoeuvre is aimed at embracing the flaws inherent in the present technological regulations.
Ducati’s defence was the component was used specifically to cool the back tyre, rather than for an aerodynamic gain — that will be illegal in that region.
