Red Bull RB7 Renault

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.

And you "keep it that way" by adding a comment! :lol:
And of course I'm now guilty of same.

But while I agree that we're discussing something which none of us know anything much about (for the moment), so it's important that we don't fill umpteen pages with twaddle (again, guilty as charged!), I don't think that's a fair accusation about the McLaren thread.

If you cast your eye over the MP4-25 thread (which I assume you mean), you'll actually find some very clever analysis of what the F-Duct was before anyone really knew what it was all about. I therefore don't think it's really fair to cite the McLaren MP4-25 thread as an example of a thread "gone bad".

(Also guilty by posting this)

I suspect he means the MP4-26 thread which is already well over 20 pages...
Favourite driver: Lando Norris
Favourite team: McLaren

Turned down the chance to meet Vettel at Silverstone in 2007. He was a test driver at the time and I didn't think it was worth queuing!! 🤦🏻‍♂️

Hopefully this isnt too off topic. An interesting review of the design process of the RB6. Looking at the computer technology involved. I know this is the RB7 thread but RedBull would have gone through the same processes this year.

The wait for RB7 is far worse now than it was prior to most everyone else showing their hands.

I believe RB7 to be a further evolution of RB6 and to look very much like W02.

That's certainly what I'm expecting, although I very much doubt that image gives us any perspective on the car at all.

Let's try and keep the speculation about the car reasonable until tomorrow morning. I do find these car threads reasonably interesting to keep up on things at times. This is not about GT5, and other car threads have already been wrecked unfortunately.

I also look forward to a game of "Where's Red Bull's exhausts?" being played tomorrow, or today as it happens.

The wait is killing me now. Renault and Lotus have both released their renault-powered, pullrod-endowed (we think, for 1malaysia) solutions for the year. Makes me wanna see how Red Bull have dealt with the regulations for 2011. It's a stretch to say Lotus will be anywhere near Red Bull this year, but Renault could put up a good fight.

It begins. Looks like a conservative evolution at first glance, but there's no detail yet...

They've kept as much of the shark's fin as they could, so they didn't have to cut the bulls tail!

Looks absolutely amazing from that top view.

DCS solution looks similar to R31 - no central pylon...
