F1: 2009 Aero Changes

So there are going to be ALOT of changes to F1 cars for the 2009 season. Some of them include the aero bits of the car. Most people will be happy that all the stick on winglettes will be BANNED.

But... everybody may not be happy about the other parts of the car. The rear wing will be much narrower... and will be mounted higher up in the air. The front wing will also be much simpler... and will have an ADJUSTABLE WING ELEMENT that the driver can move up adn down in the race.

Here's a picture of Williams testing the 2009 rear wing on their 2008 car... prepare to be SHOCKED!

That just looks wrong! Isn't just using a one plane wing as effective as making one that narrow?
