Red Bull RB15

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.

I wish they go back to those wider ''nostrils'' nosecones from last year. They suit the car aesthetically much better...
how cares about aesthetical? the car needs to be fast, that's all that matters and if a ugly nosecone helps with becoming fast ..... i take it :D

I think that principle lasts until unnatural boundary conditions (technical rules...) come into play.

Still striking to me how much bigger their front wing is than most of the other teams.
So I think Mercedes (Toto) said it would be pursuing a Ferrari style concept for updates later in the year (Spainish GP), but if this is the china upgrade from Red bull do we think they are still pursuing a different concept from the outwash front wing. Or are they clearing all the upgrades in the queue for this concept in order to focus on a more outwash style front wing concept like Ferrari later in the year.

Will be really interesting to see how this car performs vs everyone else this weekend. I would imagine they'll have alot more front downforce than most and as such more drag?
No one from Merc said that

Still don't see any proof of a "big aerodynamic update". The car is the same as in pre season.

which, claimed by RB, was planned before this weekend has started, my guess is that they wanna compare chassis, old v new, and see if this really brings the preformance they expected.
