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.

Packaging is not bad, but to be honest, I expected a little more considering that they still use the airbox intake for cooling/have cooler(s) in the roll hoop, I mean, Ferrari doesn't do that, and they still have more aggressively slanted sidepods and a more pinched-in "coke bottle", just from eye-balling it.... It could be that Honda's continually increasing power output comes with greater compromises than their rival's advancements...
The location and styling of the exhaust manifolds (I'm assuming they layout is very similar to the 2019 PU) restricts anymore of a 'coke bottle' from the side-pods.

Might be utilizing this NACA duct as feeder to the S duct

Quite a difference on the rear suspension. The green line is the aproximate position of the lower wishbone in rb15. It was underneath the pullrod.
Not correct. The green line is just a winglet on rear brake ducts. The rear wishbone connection is where the driveshaft is, in its usual position.

It seems that they have lowered the rake angle quite significantly.

Depends on the picture and possibly curve/straight. Look at the picture on page 3 of this thread.

Much smaller nose tip. McLaren inspired.

the nose looks quite slim...
You need to make it slim in order to have a decent size of cape - the width of the cape has to be inside the bodywork "box" created by the rules.

The green line indicates where the lower wishbone USED to be in RB15. That is last years car. The actual photo is of the RB16 where we can clearly see the new position of the wishbone as indicated by the green arrow.

Whoa, those sidepods are TINY. The airbox seems massive compared to the sidepods.
