Renault F1 R.S. 20 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.

These are a bit higher res.
The cape looks really long.
-Slim nose
-Cape
-High mounted front suspension
-Matte color

These for now!

But why so much secrecy?? Nothing that innovative on it for the others to copy i think...
Excuses because they're not ready. They need to fire Abiteboul

To my eye nothing special compared to others for 2020. I am pretty sure they will finnish around 1.7s behind Merc or Ferrari at testing.

Honestly, the nose job, although it is new doesn't look quite like a good finish to me.

Scarbs speculated the secrecy is meant to hide that huge cape that runs for longer than we see on other cars

Some more photos on track



Not sure if I’m not lookng closely enough, but apart from the new nose I’m struggling to make out any difference between this car and the RS19 :|

I think the sidepods are actually fairly significantly shrunk vs last year’s car.

Overall it’s quite a pretty car, I think; the changes seem logical, although obviously how well they come together is anyone’s guess.
