This is an interesting point regarding the Williams nose. However this may shed some light on the Renault's nose cone, which appears to be lower. To the extent that this nose holds balast (which I read somewhere that it does) it seems unlikely that it is a decoy, as you would think that a car is developed around its weight distribution.Quote xpensive
I doubt if the high nose in front of the wheel centerline would be the preferable location for ballast.
The animated picture of the Renault with a sleek nose is how the R28 would look if it was under the 2009 rules. They made it just to show their fans the general shape of the cars next year.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...
