Red Bull RB11 - new nose

10 May 2015

After needing no less than four FIA crash tests to homologate it, Red Bull finally introduced their new, shorter nose on the RB11 in Spain...

It’s not dissimilar to the Toro Rosso’s and is easily spotted by the much steeper angle of the front wing pillars compared to the old, long nose (inset). Note that the central section of the nose no longer interferes with the main profile. This new nose also moves the centre of pressure backwards and gives more downforce to the diffuser.
