Toro Rosso have shared in the problems that have surfaced during testing with the Renault powerunits but like usual the boys from Faenza seem to have gone about their business quietly. Furthermore, looking for more aerodynamic performance they arrived at the last test with a new nose. Their ungainly 'finger' nose is never going to win them any style awards and the latest incarnation does little to improve matters. 

The new nose (old one inset) features a concave upper surface just aft of the finger extension reducing the chances of the airflow spilling off the side, isolating the airflow. This has also led to the arc'd sections beside the finger extension to be extruded upward, further extending the passage of airflow to the chassis/splitter/floor etc aft of it.

  1. I just came to your post and reading above thing it is very impressive me and it is very nice blog. Thanks a lot for sharing this.


Whilst I'm trying to keep atop of the blog you may have noticed of late that there is less content appearing. For those of you that haven't realised, most of my work has now been moved over to where I'm working with Giorgio Piola.

As some of you may have found out already I'm also working with the Missed Apex crew on their podcast from time-to-time, either doing race reviews or dedicated 'Tech Time' shows.

I've embedded the latest version of the podcast below and will update this a frequently as I appear. However, please head over to Itunes if you want it to appear in your player when episodes are available. The show is great to work on and has a great lineup of 'regulars' but has also enticed some bigger names recently too, with Will Buxton and Bradley Philpot on shows during the summer break.
