Hi everyone,

                      I've sat here from the start of the year watching the new design F1 cars on track, ALL of them are suffering from the "Porpoise" problem, my personal opinion on this is that its the New Wheel and Tire designs which have a lower sidewall than the Wheels and Tires of the past,  most will know that if you have a larger wheel with a smaller sidewall tire you get a much harder ride and less flexing compression of the sidewall which in turn will translate into faster reactions from the suspension component's, it may well be that coupled with the chassis length it may result in a chain reaction expanding the problem...!!!   However, this is just my view on the problem ????

Pretty sure it's not that.


Firstly the non ground effect cars didn't do it when they tested these tyres.


F2 has run similar tyres for a few years and doesn't suffer from it.


And the likes of Red Bull and McLaren don't really have noticeable porposing.
