Red Bull RB16

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.

Pushes the wake out and around the car so it doesnt influence the floor.

It’s Seems not only does Merc have the narrowest nosecone, but the front of the monocoque seems narrower all along its length too

RBs monocoque seems the same width as McLaren around the cockpit but then tapers in towards where the nose connects

Of course it may just be misleading pictures

SF1000 has similarly big brake ducts (probably for blown wheel hub)... Another point of view could be (as is posted in Mercedes therad) that Mercedes has them smaller as they expect to be more time in front :)

The brake ducts of RB16 are 3 times the size of the ones of Alpha Tauri. I doubt that the sister team of RBR will expect to be more in front. :)
