It's quite interesting that other teams (especially Renault) rather try to get the air to go inside and over the front wheels. Compare:PNSD wrote:Seems like a small compramise to get the air around the wheel rather than a larger wing.
I don't think it is obviously anything. Unless you have insider knowledge, or an authoratative source that declares it a decoy, what you are stating as fact is really just your speculation.xpensive wrote:At this stage I wouldn't take much to the bank though, the Renault nose is obviously some sort of decoy, while the front end on BMWs official pic's looks stangely animated.
Right on point... and to add, Renault have no time for games after those last two seasons.... especially after what happened with Honda.DaveKillens wrote:I cannot see this radical nose concept as anything but a genuine effort by Renault to make it work.
There's a time to play deceptive games, and there's a time for serious work. Testing time is limited, and throwing away a huge chunk of very valuable development time for childish games just does not appear logical.
Ever think that the sleek nose pic was the decoy? so other teams wouldnt look into the box nose which Renault may think is an effective innovation?xpensive wrote:Guess I forgot the magic word in all this excitement, what I ment to say was of course that I THINK the boxy-nose is a decoy, sorry about that gentlemen.
But I believe there is something more to this anyway, certainly after a posting on another thread of a Renault with a much sleeker nose. The box-job could also be a temporary result of the failed crash-test or whatever, but on the grid in March? Näää...
