So the main problem I had with that post was the idea that no wings would prevent closer racing. While its the exact opposite, as the relative lack of wake/dirty air would allow cars to follow eachother more closely in cornering.



No wing would be "pouring the wake onto the car"??? It just made no sense at all.

As air passes over a Formula 1 car’s surfaces it produces a wake of turbulent air that hampers the aerodynamic flow of cars directly behind it. This wake – nicknamed ‘dirty air’ – can be of benefit to a following car on the straight, as the car in front is effectively punching a hole in the air and doing more work.

Dirty air does, however, hamper the efficiency of the following car’s own aerodynamic surfaces, reducing downforce, making it slower in the turns, and limiting the effectiveness of the cooling system.
Thanks for that.

Back on topic, I hope the Turkish GP is included in next year's calendar, as it is probably the best Tilkedrome and does produce a good race.
