victor. i dont know about sunny, but i referred to their exhaust several days ago, but was shot down by another poster! the bull is concentrating on blowing their unsprung mass with the exhaust. that is what i have found out so far, but i am sure that there is more under the bodywork. i am leaning towards air being directed around the exhaust, by the bodywork, creating almost a jet effect from the exhaust. fed either from the upper nose intake, or the sharks mouth intake below the nose.
it is early days yet, so news is sparse.

Richard, for me you wasn't shoot down over your post “blowing the exhaust on the brake duct” as I could tell from what he said that he is not up to date with the latest going's on, only somebody that knows what he is talking about can shoot somebody down over a subject.
You was right, directing the exhaust to blow on the vanes around the rear brake duct fins is one of several solutions and is considered by some to be better than blowing under the rear wing, this for the simple reason that it will be producing down force directly at the wheel which is an un sprung part of the car “un effecting the ride height” the problem with this is the sensitivity to throttle position, I was talking about this sensitivity (found out by FERRARI) sometime ago which forced them to come out with the periscope exhaust.

@@@ Hulkenberg only-0,17 but what this article does not tell you is that :

SEb was on HARD

Hulkenberg was on SOFT. (From Italian sport news).

You will have to change name, GM(Global office) announced they are dropping the Iconic model in Australia for a smaller vehicle in line with the market demand.

How shall we call you from now on??!! CRUZE,,,BARINA,,,CAPTIVA .

Just joking Mate , but about" Commodore",it s true,i heard it now in the news.

@ Dan - Check me on this, but Isn't getting the most out of the car and winning races etc... what Red Bull pays Vettel to do? I suppose he could slow down just to make the other drivers and teams feel better about themselves. Would that make you happy ?

I'm just asking.
