    While simple solution (if they don't need to change the shape as was also rumored).

    It is really weird they would do this for Germany when they only have to do it from Turkey. Even if the generated downforce is similar it gets generated 3 cm more forward. So multipllied by the arm there will be a difference. Maybe they will just use it on one car on SD and then change back?

    I went back to the vids from Turkey test and it seems the wing is in the new position there as well (I only checked two Tnak vids.).

    Seems needless to change it before they have to.

    Looks like they are using this on other cars as well.
    I went back to testing vids from Greece last week and it seems Latvala (at least on first runs) didn't use this but later Tanak used it on all runs that I saw. In testing for Germany (which was before Finland) the used the old position.

    Also it might be that the "plan" by FIA that all teams need to be compliant by Turkey is multi-step and requires some changes already in Germany?

    or that 3cm makes no difference in performance so TGR is using it now.

    If it makes no difference for downforce and drag then why were they using the position 3cm further back before? It seemingly only has disadvantages otherwise:
    - higher polar moment (more weight further away from center of the car)
    - (attachment) need to be stiffer/stronger/heavier cause it experiences higher forces and is more likely to break off

    But off course it's an option that the diference is not very big, since the times of Lancer WRC 04 (http://m.webwombat.com.au/motoring/n...rally2-big.JPG), just about anything is possible
