It seems as if at that moment they decided to make a 180 degree change in their current design paradigm and design the F2012. Now they have built this car, but it seems like a half-thought plan. I find my self wondering now if F150 were further evolved what they would have come up with.
Regardless, I believe we will find out of Mclaren, Ferrari, and probably MB's exhaust ideas were the way to go or if Red Bull's simple method is shown to be the way. Ferrari's plan strikes me as the most odd for sure. I'd love to see what it proved in the wind tunnel.....
I see the shape of the Ferrari sidepods of course moves downward to the back end, but is the purpose to attempt a redirect of the exhaust gases? I don't see how it's possible considering their velocity.
"Fernando Alonso says he has already seen positive signs from the new F2012 that it is able to generate heat into its tyres more quickly than was the case with its predecessor – a key aim for the team this year."
Maybe they are blowing the hot exhaust onto the tires to warm them up!
This is my first post, hi evryone
I'm sorry form my English but i'm italian
I don't think the exhoust are blowing for heating the tires because gas exhaust are too hot (700C) for this.
More this is not their appropriate use, simply i think that they want generate more downforce like the other teams
If they don't have the problem to bring in temperature the tyres maybe, it is for the pull rod suspension.
