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.

Fine job on the "shrinkage", interesting nose and finally going cape.

Seems like it's using the brazilian FP FW on track too.

The nose looks smaller in width than last year...probably to accommodate the cape underneath! Why not narrow it down even more like the Mercedes one, to exploit even more of that cape concept?

Something like that...i made the nose a bit slimmer!

Red Bull chooses to exploit airflow through the nose with the nostrils in the front through cavities in the nose, where Mercedes goes for a cleaner frontal area instead.

The nose looks pretty ugly now tbh.... they took design cues from the arrows A1...

Did we not once have rules banning holes in the bodywork? seems there are more of them on and around that nose than than you would find on the average tea-bag
Those rules only apply to the outboard part of the sidepod don't they? Hence why any vents on the tops of the sidepod are only on the inner part next to the driver's compartment.

Sidepods have been reworked and made even narrower it seems! Nice evolution of last year's car.

Front and Rear wings will be changed come Barcelona i believe...they have to. The car in general looks promising in terms of how much developed it looks!

Also the cape there can make a big difference it seems...since the Ferrari used it in Singapore the car transformed and worked much better as the results suggested (qualifying at least)!

From that angle you can really see that they are finally back to their 2013 level of narrow, teardrop sidepod - can't even read the Red Bull there.
There is a claim of V8-like sidepod packaging, despite the use of a hybrid V6 turbo powerunit with myriad coolers. If bosyber's claim is accurate, that is very impressive. =D>
