First wind tunnel test of 2021 F1 rules produced ‘exceptional results’ | 2021 F1 season

The first wind tunnel test of Formula 1’s new regulations for the 2021 season have produced “exceptional” results, according to the sport’s chief technical officer Pat Symonds.
F1 and the FIA tested a 50% scale model of a car based on the new rules at the wind tunnel operated by Sauber, which runs the Alfa Romeo F1 team.
While Formula 1 teams are limited by regulations to a maximum wind tunnel model size of 60%, F1 used a 50% model in order to gain more useful data on the aerodynamic wake behind a moving car.
