Renault R30 - low blowing exhausts 27 June 2010

Renault are another team to introduce a Red Bull-style low blowing exhaust configuration in Valencia, joining Mercedes and Ferrari (Force India and McLaren are expected to follow at the next round at Silverstone). The exhaust exit is covered (red arrow) and has some thermal protection against the high temperatures. Renault have also introduced a new gearbox casing to allow for the higher suspension pick-up points that are needed to accommodate the revised configuration.
