Red Bull RB2 - rear end detail 05 January 2006

The transmission area is a development of last year's design concept, with the bodywork wrapped closely around the mechanical components, so as to reduce aerodynamic disruption and increase the efficiency of the bottom of the car, which is effectively sucked towards the ground as air exits the rear diffuser. The drive shaft and toe-in link are combined in one aerodynamically shaped wishbone, as on the RB1, a feature likely to be seen on other cars this year, possibly even the Ferrari, which adopted a similar solution last year. On its test launch the RB2 sported a rear wing from its predecessor, but this will almost certainly change before the start of the season.
