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.

Good to see you korzeniow. Where are you in the Autosport forum?
So they added these to the diffuser. http://i.imgur.com/M1wjNSA.png RB introduced them in 2014 and Lotus used them that year.
But it seems Renault is testing three different variations of the new diffuser. That 'gurney'less version, a 2nd version with double pseudo-gurney-flaps, and a 3rd version with a single old school gurney.

Interesting direction of development for Renault, they've extended their barge boards inward, thus reducing the amount of air that goes from under the tub to under the floor. Geometry of these extended horizontal pieces now looks like it could produce some downforce just a bit rearward of the leading edge...
And they call it a stall. A STALL!
