Write the book correctly and there's no need to worry. Just ensure you know the difference between a comma and a semi-colon.
Then the book wasn't written correctly, they're still winglets enclosed or not.

Properly speaking they are shrouds.

No less dangerous than winglets imo , Dani even referred to getting his handlebar getting caught in them.

Someone has got to be talking Rossi tire conspiracy, no? The old fart is a crotch hair from pole. So much for crappy '17 Yamahas. Which if you look at the season so far is a silly concept. The Yamahas are doing pretty damn good when it isn't raining, and even that might not be all the bike's fault.

Well I think the rules were written okay. BUT, the safety sheriff has the last word and I believe Ducati did submitted this form before. I sort of remember it. Since the main concern was safety, it looks like they are allowing it in the "spirit of the fucking rules." Read the following. I don't think the Ducati things should be allowed by how I read the wording. What do you think?

Quote:
2.4.4.7
1. The windscreen edge and the edges of all other exposed parts of the streamlining must be rounded.

2. The maximum width of bodywork must not exceed 600 mm.

8. Devices or shapes protruding from the fairing or bodywork and not integrated in the body streamlining (eg. wings, ns, bulges, etc.) that may provide an aerodynamic effect (eg. providing downforce, disrupting aerodynamic wake, etc.) are not allowed.

The Technical Director will be the sole judge of whether a device or fairing design falls into the above de nition.

Moving aerodynamic devices are prohibited.

The new fairing is affecting the top speed by a substantial amount. I wonder if it's within the rules to make them retractable

Yamaha and honda have been using their own version of the shroud for a while now so this isn't that much of a surprise. I'm shit at posting photos, calling on gaz to post evidence.

Actually - it fits all the requirements. No sharp edges, integrated into the forum, no moving parts.
