The key words there are: Red Bull and new. This forum has turned into Newey love fest lately. On this forum,if Red Bull uses a solution then it's automatically optimized to be the best anything can possibly be in these regs and impossible to improve upon.... Until it changes.radosav wrote:i remember that red bull's first exhaust solution was considered the best when we saw it first time.it was something that everyone should copy. and then 4 weeks later red bull showed new exhaust that was copy from another team exhaust systems. this set of rules doesn't leave you much space for manipulation.Jimi_Hendrix_1967 wrote:http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/97958
No development on the exhaust until may at the earliest.
"Ferrari has said that a change of exhaust layout mid-way through testing was the main cause of its tough winter. Domenicali said a new version of the F2012's original exhaust would not be ready until the May test at Mugello.
"The process is long because we need to modify the bodywork," he said. "Our technicians need to understand how to intervene with the CFD, then analyse temperatures, prepare the parts and test them. We'll be able to do that only at Mugello testing in May."
Painfull and if they gonna copy red bulls concept, a huge embarrassment imo.
I wonder if Ferrari shouldnt just copy the entire Reb Bull car and take it from there. Newey seems to be a lot better in finding the gains in the curent rules.
No need to plodder for years in own concepts, if the end result is copying red bullsystems anyway. Just look at the rear pull rod suspension everybody thought would be on the Ferrari since 2010, but only got adapted on this f2012.
I think the sidepods,exhaust and FW will be different come Melbourne.
