Red Bull RB6 - front brake-rim attachment 03 April 2010

In both the first two races Red Bull suffered problems with their front wheel upright's brake-rim attachment - on Friday morning in Bahrain on Vettel's car, and on his again in Melbourne when the front-left wheel came loose. For Malaysia the team have worked hard to avoid the problem, checking the assembly of the components (hub, wheel nut and rim) after nearly every run. As you can see in the drawing, Red Bull don't have the locking pins (arrow) in the hub plate but instead in the inside of the rim.
