While Renault has been the trend setter for aerodynamics in so far this season, for once the French team has adopted something seen at another team already. As early as last year, Toyota introduced the air guiding panels at the front top of the sidepods. Renault have now developed an element similar to that of Honda. It functions by reducing turbulence from the front wheel and guiding air properly around the sidepod. As for Renault, that means downward, in a bend towards the flip-ups positioned in front of the rear wheels.
I was always think that Renaults solutions are always much neater and better intergrated than other teams.
