i know they know more than i do but whay are they placing the wing so far forward when other teams are hanging it as far off the back of the car as possible. do they want as much downforce over the rear wheels as possible? it wure is odd looking. what do they know that everyone else doesnt. wasnt too long ago that wings on race cars were veiwed as cheating and funny looking so who knows. it seems mr. pannizzi likes it though.

Actually if you look at the locaton of the wing relative to a vertical line through the center of the rear wheel, it's not that much different than the Peugeot or the Ford. Basically it's similar to the competition, it's just mitsubishi has more car behind the rear wheel than the others do.

My wager on this choice of location has to do with flow seperation as the air goes over the top of the car. At the transition from the roof, to the rear glass, to the decklid there's a huge pressure drop. And the spoiler at the forward side of the trunk would interact with more dense air, than one would at the back end of the trunk. Thus being more effective. That said I still don't think it's visually pleasing at all.

It does look like they have done a lot of wind tunnel testing though.

Look at the roof vent - it looks like a "pod" that has been put on - most likely to gain better air flow over the roof. or at least that's my 2¢

It's just good to have them back! Good luck Mitsubishi!
