Are both considered beam wings? Or do they have different names
Well my friend ...That's a 'double Ferrari beam wing . Red Bull ran with it in the 2023 Japanese GP (Suzuka)

and knowing from personal friends who compete in the euro karting championship, i truly believe what they say.
Comparing kart times from Max 12-15 years ago to ones now means very little. Tires, engine tech all make newer faster - plus track themselved get faster. That's like me saying a 2016 M4 GTS is as fast as a 2004 Carrera GT on the N'Ring since the times are the same. Well, the CGT was on a basic summer tire and the GTS a Cup2 tire, plus tire tech has exponentially gotten better in that time frame where a CGT on Cup tires today would likely be 20 seconds faster when the tire variable is negated and the N'Ring has been paved making it faster and smoother.
I'm not saying there arent good drivers, but until one actiually beats Max, same day, same car, I have a hard time believing it due to the above. I have a friend with two sons who competed and only lost to Geoge Russel but I wouldnt say they were faster than half of the F1 grid.
Drivers like Max come around once a century. I doubt there is a cohort of Max-like talent, otherwise someone would sponsor them and get them to F1.
