^Hope it performs as bad as it looks
That's exactly what they did. Red Bull had a high nose on the RB6 but will in 2012 continue with the low nose from the RB7 which is bound to be lower. Whether it will stepped like on the Ferrari or curve like the Mclaren will be seen next week. The Ferrari is interestingly tight and compact at the back. They've done a decent job packing the engine and cooling well though not entirely level with the RB7.
Where differences in opinion will be seen is at the rear. Exhaust pipes are rather restricted in their positioning and my be between 10-30 degrees in angle from the reference plane. However there is a bit of flexibility in the outward or inward direction. Either teams can direct them towards the rear wing or down below to the beam wing. What we've seen on this week's cars isn't neccessarily the final exhaust positioning as I am sure teams will explore and fine tune during testing.
The Force India looks more than decent.

Really interesting... Macca and Ferrari are so different now...
Can't wait to see what Redbull's hiding in their garage
Is that the Ferrari branded snow shovel?
BTW. Did something change in rules that every one is sporting these platypus noses?
Yes, the new regulation limit the height of the nose cone for safety reasons.

Thanks for that awesome website. :t-cheers:
No problem mate, there are many hours worth of high quality articles to read on there.
The season has barely started and someone at Ferrari probably has already started running their mouth to Charlie Whiting about the legality of the Maclaren.

And so the F1 Circus resumes.
Lotus Renault launched their new 2012 car, called the E20 by releasing a pre recorded video which is now on youtube. How boring.
You don't get to see that much of the car at all.
