2012 brand new Red Bull RB8, the new car characteristics with a very much revised exhaust, the new RB8 done its first some laps at Barcelona on third day with Australian Mark Webber.
New RB8 chassis specially features revised exhaust and a new front wing to name just two remarkable differences.
“We’ve had our first glimpse of the new parts on the Red Bull and it’s effectively a completely new car,” technical analyst Gary Anderson told BBC Sport. The chassis is the same, I’m sure, but there’s a new front wing and a completely redesigned underfloor and coke-bottle area at the back.
“The exhaust exits are fairly far forward but there is a down-feeding duct behind them and an inlet on the top of the floor. It seems they’re trying to get the exhaust flow down into that inlet to feed the diffuser.
“The first impressions are that the Red Bull is a really nicely detailed car – there are ducts and bits and pieces everywhere. It’s a very complicated bodywork set-up and it will take some more looking at to understand what’s going on.”
