Red Bull RB13 TAG Heuer

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.

As predicted from last year. Copying of mercedes serated floor ideas is the way forward.
What serrations are you talking about? I see nothing copied from Mercedes and I certainly don't see serrations.
He means the slots in the floor.
Why are people discussing the squirt slots?

Check out the lower arrow in this pic :

Leading edge of the floor beneath the sidepod ... it was discussed endlessly when Merc first put it on their car ("draggy looking design", etc)

I think the Renault engine by this point is a lot more competitive that people give it credit for, they certainly don't end up in fuel saving modes much any more, no more so than the Merc and Ferrari anyway, and it doesn't lack much for straightline speed any more either, DRS overtakes on the Merc and Ferrari are no issue any longer.
I disagree. If Renault was anywhere near Ferrari or Mercedes on power then Red Bull should have been on pole in Hungary. The main issue is reliability and every time that either Daniel or Max want to push the RB13 it lets them down. While in performance the Renault might be able to get past customer Mercedes it certainly isn't anywhere near the factory Mercedes performance, especially when Mercedes have the dial turned to 11.
I disagree
Hungary one of less power sensitive track.Last year(2016) redbull +0.3 from poll.Ferrari +0.9 from poll.
2016 mercedes PU => 2016 Ferrari > 2016 Renault PU

I think PU factor (mercedes between renault) maxium is 0.2 sec. in this track. So this is not enough Redbull get pole
I beleive that Mclaren 2017 car better than Redbull 2017 car

imo they are trying to turn the front of the floor into a ground effects tunnel intake to feed more air under the floor - just like the ground effects cars from the golden era of Champ Car.

You can see the entry to the tunnels in this pic:

and here's a pic of a Champ Car floor:
