I noticed something odd in RACE. The caterhams have a huge colums of air behind the car where you can dive it to slipstream (for ex Monza) but the WTCC cars don't.
Looks to me that in real life the wtcc with their wings should give slipsteam opportunities as well?

Yeah normally they have. Tom Coronel said you really feel the slipstream in these cars and you easily drive to the back of your opponent.

I do feel the slipstream... Maybe it's because you've got a wrong imagination of it. It's about 3-7 km/h more topspeed.

When you watch the WTCC quali sessions you always see the cars of the teammates driving behind each other, to get slipstream.

It's also in the game, but maybe not as much as in reality.
