Renault Sport F1 R.S.17

A place to discuss the characteristics of the cars in Formula One, both current as well as historical. Laptimes, driver worshipping and team chatter does not belong here.

Why would it be?

The pillar seems to be roughly in the same position that it would be on their previous wing.

As with most teams, the front axle is hollow and houses a inner duct that blows air straight out, this helps with the front wing in creating the outwash around the front tyre.

Image
Rear wing angle is adjusted by changing these spacers for ones with a different offset.

Steering wheel, six paddles are for gear shifts, clutch and compound functions (i.e. DRS, overtake settings etc)

New BB today with new horizontal elements at their base with bigger openings and vanes a la Ferrari/Haas...
Didnt spot many changes on the "new" floor. Only the metallic vane near the rear tires look different...

You've rumbled them. They were hoping nobody would notice :)
I think they've been running the same support all year.
