BAR Honda CEO on CFD Technology

News Motorsport.com has an interview with BAR chief executive Nick Fry discussing the recently completed season and looking ahead to next year. When questioned about a possible new F1 regulation requiring a Centreline Downwash Generating (CDG) rear wing, Mr. Fry had this to say:
On the new CDG wing, I think a lot more work needs to be done to ensure it is the right answer. We're one of the biggest proponents of CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) technology but it only gives you a good guide for what you should be doing, it doesn't have the resolution to give you all the answers. I feel more work, more modelling and more wind tunnel tests need to be done to make sure that this new rear wing proposal really is the way to go.
