So here we go with 2019. (copied over from the old forum)
Bad news first for UK only: C4 & Sky have gone into a collaborative deal which means that Free to Air TV remains on C4 but is only “highlights” for all the races, with just the one exception of the British GP.
Sky have all the races live on Sky Sports F1 channel.
Changes to some of the more “interesting” spec’s & regulations for 2019 are; Simplified wing configurations with the aim of reducing front wing sensitivity in turbulent air & minimising the difficulty of following another car closely, also associated with the wing changes are simplified brake duct & barge-boards. One other change that affects race performance is fuel allowance is increased to allow races to be run at full power at all times.
However, I’m reading that the predicted improvement in racing with the new wing(s) - close following & better overtaking - are not giving the expected results in testing. Ferrari tested the front wing during practice at Abu Dhabi & the other teams testing all indicate that its does not meet expectations, forecasting only a small, maybe no effect.
Oh well, we shall see when pre-season testing kicks off.
