Default Re: 2015 Austrian F1 GP - Race Thread

Force India's parts tested at Austria included a new front wing, turning vanes and sidepods.
The front wing looks more like a Red Bull design in both its wing shape, endplates and the winglet mounted above it.

The sidepods are narrower toward the rear compared to the present car with the hot air outlets forming the Coke bottle tail shape like the Toro Rosso, while the neatly faired-in exhaust tailpipe follows a Lotus design.
Obviously there are more to come at the Silverstone weekend.
One thing that caught everyone's attention was the "nostrils" in the nose.

The rules dont allow vented noses as a response to Ferrari's ducted design of 2008. The nose has to form a single open section, which effectively prevents open ducts. However, closer inspection of the rules shows this is only applied to the middle section of nose, not the front and rear 150mm lengths.
It's possible these exclusion zones could allow a multiple section nose with the one-piece nose tip reconnecting the open sections. That means Force India can retain the structure of the old nose and create a new airflow regime over it with these ducts. If it's deemed legal after the inevitable protest & scrutiny at Silverstone if they introduce it Force India would have done a great job as its a cost-effective route, because it may not necessarily require recertification via crash tests.

Hopefully from next year the conspiracy theories will not appear if F1 decides to implement the proposals from F1 Commission for changes to the 2016 F1 Sporting Regulations

27.2 Accident data recording :

a) Each car must be fitted with an FIA accident data recorder during each Event and during all tests which are attended by more than one team. Teams must use their best endeavours to ensure that the recorder is in working order at all times. The only purpose of these units is to monitor, record or control one or more of the following:
i) Data relevant to an accident or incident.
ii) A deceleration warning light on board the car.
iii) A lap trigger.
iv) The driver input signal used to initiate the propulsion of the car at the start of a race.

b) For the purpose of accident analysis, each car must be fitted with a high speed camera which has been manufactured by the FIA designated supplier to a specification determined by the FIA. This should be fitted to the car during each Event and all tests which are attended by more than one team, teams must use their best endeavours to ensure that it is in working order at
all times. The camera must be fitted in accordance with the instructions of the FIA.

c) For the purpose of accident analysis, each driver must wear in-ear accelerometers which have been manufactured by the FIA designated supplier to a specification determined by the FIA. These should be worn by the driver during each Event and all tests which are attended by more than one team, teams must use their best endeavours to ensure that they are in working order at all times.

d) At any time following an accident or incident competitors must make the data recorder available and accessible to the FIA. A representative of the team concerned may be present when data relevant to an accident or incident is being uploaded from the recorder. A copy of the data will be made available to the team.

e) Any conclusions as to the cause of an accident, or any data relevant to an accident, may only be published in the form of a report which has been agreed between the team concerned and the FIA.
