Renault Sport F1 R.S.17

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.

Nice aero push from Renault. Nico has very positive feedback after Bahrein test.
But, I am much interested in, how 2017. MGU-H updates have shown in test, and will we see full 17' PU configuration in Sochi.

It's not sure that they tested new MGU-H.
At least they don't speak about it :

I read before test,some news article about them planning to test newest upgrade of problematic 2017 MGU-H and that will be up to customer teams if they want or not test it.

Is the new one just the old one with a low-drag end-plate?

Yeah.
IMO, the only parts that didnt really change are the parts colored red here.
So this FW is an evolution but it seems to be a 90% new wing

Upper flaps are obviously new, as is the flap adjuster pod to accommodate the new flaps, but nothing more than that...
