In recent years, we have seen a couple of times where a car lost significant parts of its front wing and continued to race, seemingly undisturbed. I am wondering what the sense of all the complicated front wing structure is when it seems that it would be possible to drive with a much simpler structure. I wonder why doesn't FIA ban such constructions? Allow a simple front wing, single component, no endplates, and no additional structures. Surely this would also save some cost, reduce on-track debris, and let the teams concentrate on things that would end up making a difference.
