Isn't that already clear? It's the exhaust who's doing it

Possible! but from my limited knowledge it seems this stuff can't give the advantage RBR possess. Best Downforce ..so that might either aero or suspension+wheelbase(i.e. mechanical grip).

That's exactly what I mean Zack! It has something to do with the flow of hot air (from the exhaust) and cold air around the car. At least that's what Olav Mol has told the Netherlands :O He told that that is their 'little secret'

You know such little secret never remain secret if they were real secret. What i mean is, if that was it .. Teams and F1 circus would be busy in talks about it .. for instance 'f-duct'. :O

This feature helps, but I think Red Bull Racing have built a car that is great overall. Not due to one thing. They just go great downforce. And they are fast on all tracks. I'm curious to see how fast they are in Monza, where downforce doesn't realy count. In Monza it comes down on engine power. And I think the Renault is slightly down in power on the Mercedes or Ferrari.
