Renault Sport F1 R.S. 18

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.

The fourth 'exhaust' pipe. This is the crankcase vent?

from Hungaroring test, look how close the exhaust to the rear wing, also wastegate pipes move to the side

Radiator exit also very high. Seems to be above lower wishbone.

It's not allowed to put internal elements to the end of the exhaust pipe? Those could be used to direct the flow a bit more to the desired location.

Only the last ~150mm. In the photo below, notice the straight shiny section of the tailpipe. That section has to be perfectly thin-wall cylindrical. But ahead of that there are no geometry restrictions, attested to by the presence of the rear wing support passing through the exhaust pipe.

Very Red bull like.
Indeed. Massive in-season change of design philosophy. Probably expected to harness significant gains.
