Renault R27

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.

Those mirrors are strange but I like it especially after the toyota hasn't changed

How can somebody be that close but take such average photos?

I'd imagine that whoever took the photos was probably trying to be discreet about it.

I find the roll hoop-mounted camera interesting... why is it looking down at the rear wing? Checking for flex? :)

Or it could simply be looking at the rear suspension... but there are better vantage points.

Some reshaping of the sidepods (a little in the style of the mp4-21)?
Sticking to the v-keel to no one's suprise.
Kinda smallish looking chimneys (as far as I can tell anyway).

Looks like a beautiful car, let's hope they don't screw up on the livery :).

If I was renault... I be seriously pissed that those pictures were out. The way that they did the mirrors is pretty ingenious (as they are in the sidepod shields). Somebody is going to be in trouble... I would have not showed those mirrors..keep it as a advantage until the start of the australian race.

Simon: [on the phone] John... in the back of the truck you're driving, there's $13 billon dollars worth in gold bullion. I wonder would a deal be out of the question?

And that’s my latest rendering made couple of days ago.

I think Renault didn't want to hide a thing. If they wanted they would run unpainted car (CF black) with no stickers on it at all. I think this is intentional "leak" Flavio came up with to cause more publicity.

Car looks sexy - now compare how many changes Renault made to a WCC & WDC car with how many changes Toyota made to their car that was underachiever.

They already sponsored Renault last year Jason!!

As you can see on this picture!

The car looks good, but I got the feeling that he's smaller than last year. Can be just my eyes as well :P
The mirrors look kind of cool, but maybe it's not practical for the drivers.

Credit where credit is due.
(BAR)Honda were the first to adopt the twin support for the rear wing.
