HRT F112 – A Two year step back on development for bargeboard at Spain


         F112 launch version lacked any bargeboards but soon a set of 2011 (F111) alike flow conditioners added on the car before Melbourne . At Spain the team moved not a year back but two instead by placing a 2010 (F110) alike set ! The two years dated  bargeboard has a saw tooth upper profile and does not extend behind the sidepod panel (no1 in the image below) but ends exactly where the floor surface starts . That itself proves that old parts could sometimes be more effective than newer ones and should never be forgotten  .Worth’s remembering though that F112 chassis is based on the same 2010 Dallara chassis opted to regulation changes .

 

        The new bargeboards dictated the sidepod panel’s  vertical slot to move slightly to the rear (no 3) , some changes to the rear zone and finally  the floor vanes become thicker , longer and more aerodynamic (no 2) to cope better with the new set .
