Formula 1 governing body promised to address the subject of 2014 F1 cars’ ugly noses for 2015 season.
FIA made changes in the nose for more safety and it does avoid cars flying over one another or, in the case of a side collision, despite passing all the mandatory crash tests. Also FIA is satisfied that the current designs are safe enough.
“A lot of teams have come up with a solution which is not quite what we intended. F1 race director Charlie Whiting said.
“The [nose tip] bits are less structural than we would have liked, but the fully structural part of the noses is significantly lower than it was last year.
“I think on average it would be 200mm lower than it was last year. OK it has not worked exactly as we had hoped it might, but it will be a significant improvement over last year and it will be addressed for next year.”
