Renault Sport F1 R.S.17 Speculation Thread

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.

Frankenrendering.

but the design looks like something that would work. Maybe they show their real philosophy here...
Finishing races is important, but racing is more important.

It looks like a photoshop or a 3d render to me but it seems to be a logical evolution of the late2015-2016 nose: it looks like an optimised-shorteneded/swept back-raised version of the RS16 nose, similar to what many teams did with their nose since 2015, like Red Bull

But the vertical mounts of the nose/FW seem to have an odd shape IMO. They would look like this seen from the side, similar to the austin 2014 prototype nose on the left) Am I right? (sorry for the shitty drawing)

A fair warning that we will not tolerate any complaints anymore about these noses in the official car threads. Those threads are not for discussing aesthetics.

I miss the times of Engine and Development war. I hope this Renault is going to be a winner and an innovation. It's only a wish...

Kinda takes the sting out for the launch when your super secret cover for the car is see through. Now it looks like they already showed us the nose shape ages ago.
