Symonds: Not too advantages from Lotus new twin tusk nose

Published

on

Lotus-E22-7Hot talks appeared on the F1 paddock after Lotus F1 revealed their new E22 via ‘Twitter’, all eyes many could not believe their eyes, the challenger had two noses , which are still to different lengths.

The unique design gives a better look at the front end, and experts expressed that, this concept nose will generate more down-force.

‘Twin tusk nose’, between the two prongs left and right leads to the air to the under body and as a result generates more down- force – an intelligent concept.

Speculation raised at Jerez that rivals externally protest against Lotus nose design, but FIA’s green flag shutdown the rumours.

“They [Lotus] have presented the concept in the summer, and we could find nothing wrong,” said FIA race director Charlie Whiting. “It’s a very clever interpretation of the rules, and declared new twin tusk nose design is legal”

“Everyone knew what makes Lotus, and maybe we have the design already on CFD (Computer Fluid Dynamics) tried,” Ex – Lotus employees Pat Symonds

“We will look at some interpretation, but some we have already looked at, have proven to us as a not too favourable.”

Williams is the way to a sharp ironing nose, the shape is compared to Caterham or Force India but relatively conservative. “Our philosophy is to get the air under the car,” added Symonds.

Which variant is the most effective, but is not as easy to answer as it depends also on the general concept of the car:

“Maybe we end up back at the debate on whether a high or a low nose is ideal, as some years ago the case was “predicted the former Renault man.

“It always depends on what the car is optimized. The McLaren worked for example with the low nose. , You have invested a lot of work, and I must say that the concept was particularly effective. ”
