I'm not an engineer

But I do understand basic physics and the laws of motion.
So I don't understand how this-
Changes to the rules this year have forced engineers to lower the front of the cars in an effort to improve safety. The regulations are intended to keep one vehicle from intruding upon the cockpit area of another in the event of a T-bone-type collision.
Would make designers choose this to accomplish that idea
Unless they made the weak spot right in front of the tires, because otherwise I can see the first thing to break off would be those vertical pylons under that sharp nose.

  1. "Lowering the nose" - really? They all look like spears that would aim right at the center of mass of the driver, with a wing precariously hung beneath.
