Red Bull RB4 - nosecone delta winglets 26 September 2008

When BMW Sauber introduced this solution at the start of the season it looked very radical. It now seems less so, having inspired similar, if slightly differently shaped designs from Honda and McLaren. In Singapore, Red Bull have introduced an almost exact copy to help cope with the track's specific demands in terms of grip and balance. The revised nose provides a better quality of airflow to the car's sidepod inlets, which are particularly small on the RB4. It also helps improve airflow to the rear of the car, even if it doesn't generate a significant amount of additional downforce.
