CaterhamF1 CT-01 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.

Yeah! I suposed that is right side of upper wing element! I also think wing is some mixture of previous Lotus and red Bull wing (nice curved). I also think that it is two cascade wing.

But the most strange thing on it is that, this wing upper element looks like they have very low angeled? (Very similar angle like those crossectioned little wings with low agle of atack in 2008...)

Looks like its a flexi wing too. should make about 100kg of Downforce at 100mph. I agree, that should assist them in making their first foray into Q3.

Trolling is a art people nevar forget.

Nice to see a piece of 2012, wouldn't mind if they'd all just be able to hurry up and run the darn things!

THIS IS THE GP2/11 CAR BUILT BY DALLARA, NOT THE CT-01. MY BAD
Check here http://www.autoblog.com/photos/dallara-gp2-11/

Pictures taken from their Caterham Racing page. Surprisingly the blade-type roll hoop is replaced with the normal roll hoop. The front look like RB6

I've got exactly the same impression. It's giving us hints, that it might be similar to late RB7 wing.

Yes; but when was the last time a team launched a car with a new-spec front wing? Most launch with end-of-last-year spec wings

true...so can we assume that they found the lost downforce from the EBD so they can use last year's front wing (or even a new, better one) without upsetting the balance?

They don't really need a new wing for less downforce, it's easier to adjust the current one.

maybe a new front wing with less downforce that better optimises the airflow :P
