@107SS2009, Reg no. 20.4 uses the "the front wing is level with the rear wheels of the car infront" to define what constitutes a significant portion of the following car only in relationship to how far the leading car may maneuver during it's 1st defensive move. This doesn't apply to the leading car taking it's line turning into a corner. A gray area to be sure. Historically, a car had not won the corner until it's front tires were level with the front tires of the leading car. In recent times, because of the increasing difficultly in passing for aerodynamic reasons this sound understanding has been relaxed. Today with the high cockpit surrounds and tiny mirrors it is almost impossible for the drivers to see anything beside them. It's a paradox of safety regs but all the drivers know this is a problem.
