Can anyone shed some light on this?
As per the article 3.8.5 and 4, ( as what i understand) no pipes (or any material) can extend over the surface of the restricted apertures in the bodywork. Thus no conventional exhaust pipes. That means F60 side pods are to be redesigned in that area before they race in Australia.

For sure the exhaust design is illegal going by the rule books of 2009. It is wrong by the way it is exposed.

Ferrari has initially announced during their launch that the F60 which will sport at Melbourne this year would be compeletely different from what they have launched. The F60 development is still in progress.

It is too early to call it illegal though and its not a surprise when Haug opens up against a Ferrari being illegal!

Default Renault

Hi can some help why renault have gone such a wide nose when most of them have gone for much sharper and longer( at least in looks) is it to carry extra ballast or is it void from below so it can generate some negative pressure below the wings if by doing so will down force be increased

Default gp in INDIA in 2011

It is off topic but felt sad that it is moved away by a year again

We thought the GP in India was 2010 but the latest news says 2011

The advantage of a wide nose section is related to the potential increase in downforce generated by the larger surface area.

Cars look ugly this year thanks to the changes in front and rear wings.Lesser downforce will lead to closer racing and more overtaking.Hmmm.Where have I heard that before? Every year I guess.
My prediction for this year would be a very close tussle between Kimi and Hamilton,with Alonso possibly throwing the occasional spanner in the works.
F1 to me has lost the emotional quotient ever since Schumi retired

Hi guys, I'm unable to find anything relating to exposed piping or exhausts in the technical regulations. Here are the relevant sections...

Quote:
3.8.4 Any vertical cross section of bodywork normal to the car centre line situated in the volumes defined below must form one tangent continuous curve on its external surface. This tangent continuous curve may not contain any radius less than 75mm:

- the volume between 50mm forward of the rear wheel centre line and 300mm rearward of the rear face of the cockpit entry template, which is more than 25mm from the car centre line and more than 100mm above the reference plane;

- the volume between 300mm rearward of the rear face of the cockpit entry template and the rear face of the cockpit entry template, which is more than 125mm from the car centre line and more than 100mm above the reference plane;

- the volume between the rear face of the cockpit entry template and 450mm forward of the rear face of the cockpit entry template, which is more than 350mm from the car centre line and more than 100mm above the reference plane.

The surfaces lying within these volumes, which are situated more than 55mm forward of the rear wheel centre line, must not contain any apertures (other than those permitted by Article 3.8.5) or contain any vertical surfaces which lie normal to the centre line of the car.

3.8.5 Once the relevant bodywork surfaces are defined in accordance with Article 3.8.4, apertures may be added for the following purposes only:

- single apertures either side of the car centre line for the sole purpose of exhaust exits. These apertures may have a combined area of no more than 50,000 sq.mm when projected onto the surface itself.

- apertures either side of the car centre line for the sole purpose of allowing suspension members and driveshafts to protrude through the bodywork. No such aperture may have an area greater than 12,000 sq. mm when projected onto the surface itself.
Exposed exhausts do not seem to be outlawed, I'm guessing it's got more to do with the shape of the rear-bodywork & what is meant by "must form one tangent continuous curve on its external surface". The other controversial element appears to be the rear-view mirrors which are now held up by what is essentially an aero element.

Anything very obvious, the other teams would've caught on considering this is F1. I'm, guessing Renault are running or testing an aerodynamic mod which is being covered up by the bulbous nose.

As per this article and what i can understand is aperture means an opening only and not the pipe jetting out, that seems to be the problem

Default how williams SURVIVED 2009 AND 2010 SEASON

"Ecclestone brokers deal to keep team racing
Published: January 23 2009 23:20 | Last updated: January 23 2009 23:20
Bernie Ecclestone, Formula One commercial director, has revealed that he advanced the struggling Williams team £14.5m after it committed to stay in the sport, write Christian Sylt and Caroline Reid.

Williams has made a loss of £50m over the past two years but the boost from Mr Ecclestone has helped the team get its budget in place until the end of 2010.

A total of £130m has been set aside as an incentive for F1’s nine teams to sign the Concorde Agreement, the contract that binds them to race in F1 but which expired at the end of 2007.

The teams now race in F1 under a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) agreed in 2006 with CVC, the private equity group that has majority control of F1, but this is not legally binding.

The MOU increased the teams’ annual prize money from 25 per cent to 50 per cent of the sport’s underlying profits and these payments began last year. But the teams have not signed a new contract, prompting Mr Ecclestone to say: “We have no contract and no invoice so why are we paying them?”

CVC offered the teams a signing bonus, comprising the difference between the old and the increased prize money backdated from 2004-07 and estimated at £130m, subject to the signing of a new Concorde Agreement, which CVC needs if it wants to withdraw from the business.

Williams, however, has already received its share of the money from 2006 and 2007. “It’s a prepayment,” says Mr Ecclestone. “They are entitled to some back-payments only due for payment when they sign the Concorde . . . we said to them we will pay you now.”

The back-dated payments represent about 20 per cent of Williams’ revenues and will have helped the team get its budget in place in spite of losing sponsors."

Hope they perform well this season or i really pity them as they can be termed as legend team in F1
