Red Bull RB8 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.

Red Bull RB8 Renault

Post

Given the stuff that already has showed up in the RB8 speculation thread; I thought it was better that a la Ferrari/McLaren, we separated the post-launch talk from the speculation.

Stepped nose looks like there is a small "bridge" between the ridges where the air goes below.....or are my eyes playing tricks on me?

I'm not sure that is it "not as ugly as the Ferrari" :?

The nose step seems vertical almost, maybe even a slight pocket shaped?

Yep, thats actually pretty ugly!

The back end looks good, nice and tight.
I was expecting the nose to look a bit like last years, maybe a bit like Lotuses, but thats ugly! Very pronounced step there.

Is the step nose an intake, or is it a bar above the nose?

Edit: Or a vertical step?
