Red Bull RB9 - hidden brake fluid cylinders 17 March 2013

For the first time in Formula One racing, the two brake fluid cylinders (shown in the inset picture) have disappeared from view in the Red Bull RB9. This is because the team needed to save space in order to run the vertical ramp and slotted hole that feature on the top of the nose section. As you can see in the main picture, the brake fluid cylinders are now hidden by an S-shaped carbon fibre cover at the top of the chassis.
