Red Bull RB8 - revised rear bodywork 24 June 2012

Red Bull introduced an almost new car in Valencia, with a heavily modified aerodynamic package.The sidepods no longer end in a cola-bottle shape, but instead with a wider, low section, going back to the original shape as introduced by Sauber. More importantly, it has radically changed the tunnel that goes underneath the exhaust ramp. It has a much larger inlet (blue arrows), divided into two sections: one blows into the starter hole; the second on top of the central section of the diffuser that has also been modified. Also new but not seen here are the rear-wing endplates.
