Red Bull RB10 Renault

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.

A quick reminder that the car threads are a haven for exploring the actual features of the actual car.

We have other threads for team & race conversations.


______________________________________________________________________________________________


Time for the annual reminder that the car threads are for examining the actual features of the car. If the comment doesn’t relate to an observation of an actual detail on the car then it doesn’t belong in this thread.

For the avoidance of doubt, here are some examples:

  • Whitmarsh, Vettel, and Boullier are not features on any car.
  • References to laptimes belong in the relevant test or race thread.
  • Seriously, there is nothing new to say about genitals, gaping fish, or monkeys with big noses. It’s all been said already. We don’t need endless reminders.
  • Soft focus effects belong in wedding albums, not technical posts.
  • “I love this team” or “the TP must be sacked” are fanboy posts
  • Links to a blog are OK as long if you make constructive objective posts here. Otherwise its just spam.

Finally, if you do see posts that are out of order then please report them so they can be dealt with appropriately.

The front of the nose looks almost... Flat?

Wow, it's kind of a keel type device!
The impossible often has a kind of integrity which the merely improbable lacks.

Interesting... Funny how they made the nose-tip matte black so it's hard to see the actual shape on pictures. I hope Scarbs makes some nice drawings :)

Vettel was not lying when he said their car looks better than anything seen so far from the other teams. At first I thought the Mercedes W05 was beautiful, but the RB10 is just a stunner!

my god, what a stunning car.

Trust Newey to pull something this sexy out when we all thought we were destined for a grid of ugliness.
