Red Bull RB13 TAG Heuer

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.

This picture does not match other photos from Japan so imo it's from a much earlier race. Surely they wouldn't ditch successful updates from the past two races?

This is not old. It's new. The lower part (mounting) is redesigned.

Old design (w.o. Ferrari elements):

The Ferrari-esque flow conditioner is back on the chassis for FP1:

What might be in the guitar-body shaped box? Simply intake manifold related? It is above the oil tank, forward of and above the main manifold.

Could anyone possibly confirm if VER already had the engine in FP3?

It looks like it has pipes coming out of the back, might be an air-to-water intercooler.

Renault engine has a straight intake pipes slanted forward, hence occupying space above oil tank.

The pipe seen is the intake to the manifold from the sidepod intercooler. That pipe is also seen

The more I look at it, the more Ferrari-esqe the RBR is looking like. At first, it was the sidepod deflector, now FW endplate.
