Redbull RB2 - V keel 11 March 2006

After proving its worth on the Renault R25 last year, Red Bull have adopted a V keel solution for 2006. The solution is particularly good - when coupled with the RB2's high nose - at improving aero efficiency in the area under the chassis close to the splitter. The airflow encounters less interference with the V keel, even if it is not quite as efficient as the no-keel concept introduced by McLaren last year and now seen on several 2006 cars.
