Would a four wheel drive Formula 1 car be faster?
If a Formula 1 car would be four wheel drive. Would it be faster because if increased traction, slower because of the extra weight or something else?
In the rain it would probably be faster, while slower in the dry.
The technology would weigh quite a bit because you would need an axle to transfer the power to the front. It would also be an aerodynamic dilemma. The adding of a gearbox would increase friction that would waste engine power.
In the rain in Monaco four wheel drive would likely be faster, but on a fast track like Monza it would only slow the car down.
