F1 eyes diffuser solution to help cure wet weather visibility problem
A recent series of rainy races has shed light on a major issue with current generation ground effect F1 cars, which is the excessive spray they generate, significantly reducing visibility compared to previous years. The FIA has been conducting tests using wheel arches to minimize the spray, but a recent test at Silverstone showed that it was not effective enough, as water was still being thrown up by the diffuser. In response to the increased frequency of wet races, Formula 1 CEO Stefano Domenicali has emphasized the importance of addressing the visibility problem and suggested potential solutions such as using only one type of wet tire in the future and considering mudguards or modifying the diffuser outlet. Although the initial wheel arch test did not yield the desired results, the FIA remains committed to finding a solution and considers it a valuable learning experience.
