Renault F1 R.S. 19

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.

Would that be vapor from a hydraulics leak?

Renault said it's down to the floor skid plate rubbing over the track. Don't know how that would bring smoke inside the cockpit though.

Maybe a friction heated metallic component caused smoldering on the opposite side of a shared bulkhead.

I guess the small squashed pipe below the exhaust is the crankcase breather.

Wire mesh springs are being used in the heave element.

wow, these really are a thing. I was pretty convinced that these are just a joke.
So it seems, these springs have particularly high damping but I haven't found any exhaustive source. Only Kinetic Structures, but they also provide no data about their properties.

And that's the modified floor they brought to France with an additional slit in front of the wheel.

Lovely shot!

These sensor mounts seem a rather liberal interpretation of the rules don't they? :roll: :lol: "We swear they aren't guiding any air!" :roll: :lol:

Why is the cooling outlet so huge compared to other teams? Does the Renault PU run unusually hot!? :wtf:

Image

Compare to Racing Point...
