Didn't the US F1 nose cone pass the crash test maybe they could graft it onto the front of their car. That nose was designed by the latest CFD technology so it was bound to be slippery

What worries me is that in the past inexperienced teams would usually over engineer everything resulting in overweight cars that past the tests without issue. HRT seem to be pushing the margins too far, something they dont have the experience to get away with.

I guess one way of looking at it is that at least they are trying to be serious, and not just playing it safe with an overweight dinosaur?
