I think that little pin or winglet w/e is attacked to a lid right there, ive seen on tv when they film the car and then you see the outlines of a lid.amc wrote:So when 'you' identified something your mysterious source who has been telling you about McLaren high noses disappears...n smikle wrote:Last year I deciphered the Mclaren fan tail exhaust first in March 2011 on this website...

Couple of things here: Firstly, it looks like the Red Bull now has plenty of rear grip - at least compared to the Mclaren - based on the rear tyre deflection. But maybe it's the angle of the pictures that causes this. Both pictures were taken at the first apex of Club, I think.
And what is the little winglet between the wing mirror and the sidepod fins on the RB8, as it is only on the right of the car? It's very small so probably doesn't affect much, but it wouldn't be there if it didn't serve a purpose. Other photos prove it is probably 40-50mm long which doesn't come out on this photo.
