https://www.ineosteamuk.com/en/articles/299_Pushing-to-the-leading-edge-of-design-with-Mercedes-F1-Applied-Science.htmlThe only problem with this statement is that I know Ken Read and he is not stupid.
So then I examined the two posts to try and understand what it was you are disagreeing or agreeing with.
4 selves: " Ineos was reminiscent of Formula 1....foils were designed by Mercedes"
Dg : "Stupid...without help of Mercedes ITUK would not have made the Prada Final"
Let me see if I have this right.
4 Selves is arguing that Mercedes had a significant impact on the design of Ineos.
Dg , strongly disagrees and argues instead that Mercedes had a significant impact on the design of Ineos
Most disagree with both of you, because they believe that Mercedes had a significant impact on the design of Ineos.
Personally I would say that we dont know how much impact Mercedes had on the design of Ineos but in parts I suspect it was meaningful.
