From Autosport:

"I was worried though and said: 'No, the car is so perfect and so well balanced. Don't touch the car because I feel the car is very competitive.'
"But Gustav insisted and we came to a very funny compromise. We put only one degree more flap just on the inside section, on the right of the front wing.
"We left the outside of the front wing the same. So it had an asymmetric set-up and this, in the end, was a very good solution."

Love the power of small numbers :)  Bob

Have to figure the wind was coming from the right?

Awhile back had an E150 van. Out on the Interstate in a strong crosswind it was a miserable thing.
Found it helped a bunch to take a couple pounds of air out of the front tires.

Now thinking only had to lower pressure on the windward side.

I remember at Silverstone once. It was British GT'S. It was damp, but drying. Being mostly right hand corners, Chris Hodgetts got fastest lap in the Marcos with a wet tyre on the nearside front and dry tyres on the rest of the car.

I used to do a bit of autocrossing. On bright sunny days I would park the car so that full sun was on the most loaded side of the car for whatever track I was at. Of course I never mentioned to other competitors why I was parking so oddly. I have more then one trophy.
As an example, at Monza, all my setups run zero camber on the right side. There's only one left turn. File this under "whatever works".
