Red Bull RB13 TAG Heuer

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.

Red Bull RB13 TAG Heuer

Post

This the official car topic about the 2017 Red Bull contender, the RB13. This thread will handle more stringent rules:

-Absolutely no livery talk in the car topic. Liveries are by nature topics assigned to the team thread, and should be discussed there. Posts about liveries in the car thread will be removed. Livery, sponsoring and any other none-performance hardware features of the car go to the team thread.

-Discussion about the car's hardware only. No discussion about the laptimes (should be discussed in the testing or race threads; test thread is here: http://www.f1technical.net/forum/viewto ... =1&t=25963). No speculation or rumors towards future features of the car; no speculation about the competitive performance (car beats car B but car C, etc.). Such discussions will be removed as well.

-Discussion about the Power Unit should belong in its respective PU topic. How the car's chassis and bodywork is adapted to it remains in the car thread, but pure features of the PU don't go there. Since this is quite a grey area, we will not remove transgressions on that front, but will move them when appropiate.

That might sound strict and is infact so, but this is done to safeguard the topic quality. A fair warning that we will be extremely strict this year! If you don't find anything worthwhile to post, please resist the urge and do not post. There is nothing wrong with that and is infact the better option when there's nothing new.

Topic will be opened once the car has been officially launched, which is February the 26th.

Locked because the car is still several months from the launch; will be reopened upon launch. Speculation topics will be opened after the season ends.

Speculation thread has been made and will be opened after the Abu Dhabi Weekend. This topic will be opened once the car is revealed.

That doesn't look like a super long wheelbase to me

Also, shark fin/sail

There is always a way, and it usually doesn't work.

Interesting nose, looks like the entire front of it is hollow, or a trick of the light. Also, tiny sidepod openings

If it's not pounding round a track, it's not a 2017 car but a launch mule. Good rule of thumb.

The exposed floor looks to be almost entirely smooth, frinstance.

What is this crap?? So much hype around it...! That has to be just a mule of the 2016 car with 2017 wings...they must be hiding something!!
