Just behind Jean-Eric Vergne's head. I somehow manage not to be visible in any of the pictures :lol:

I might be in one by Lotus though, they were taking pictures just in front of me while López was talking inside his motorhome.

They can easily change that if it turns out to be bad. I would be more concerned about pull rod suspension. It leaves less space under the nose of the car, and it can worsen aerodynamics or the suspension is not efficient enough :confused: Could be that they have some secret innovations in suspension.

They're running the 2011 car. They won't be bringing the new one out until the 21st.
HRT are running the '11 car as well.

The new FW34 uses less than 5% of the parts of the last season´s car. (According to a brazilian source [http://tinyurl.com/74sum6b])

Mika Salo does not believe Newey's explanation about the "letter box"

Newey gave unbelievable explanation

07.02.2012 15:44

Red Bull technical director Adrian Newey claims the opening in new car's nose step is to keep driver cool.

In Jerez paddock there has been wonders about the hole on the nose of Red Bull's car.

- It is simply to keep the driver cool. Traditionally, the hole to cool the driver has been at the tip of the nose, but now with new looks we changed it, so we can get better aesthetics to the step, caused by the rules, Newey said in Jerez on Tuesday.

MTV3's F1 expert Mika Salo did not completely swallow Neweyn explanation.

- The holes are really big compared to what they have been. Surely the cooling air goes somewhere else, such as cooling Kers. Driver does not need so much air, and this would be the first time in history of F1, when I hear somebody thinking of cooling the driver, Salo says.

MTV3, Jani Merimaa, Jerez
