Red Bull RB2 - front suspension and bodywork 05 January 2006

From the tip of its nose to its front suspension mountings, the new Red Bull shows clear signs of a Ferrari design philosophy influence. The two small round protuberances (1) on the top of the chassis, housing the suspension rockers and torsion bars, are very similar, while the position of the push rod link, inclined slightly backwards (2), and the assembly of this element, with a very slim metal head (3), are almost exactly the same as on the Italian car. This suggests that the RB2's whole suspension geometry follows a very similar principle to the Ferrari's - perhaps not surprising given that both machines use the same V8 engine.
