Red Bull RB5 - front suspension pickup points 05 April 2009

The RB5 is almost certainly the most innovative and extreme car on the 2009 grid. Its chassis is very high at the front, with its unique U-shape meaning the front suspension's lower wishbones share almost a single pickup point, with just a small separation in between (red arrow). This solution has the benefit of allowing a large volume of air to pass under the chassis and feed the (conventional) rear diffuser.
