Red Bull Racing have pulled back the covers on their 2014 Championship contender, and to the relief of many, its nose won’t make you blush.
Throughout the week we have seen snippets of some, and official launches of others, yet with each Formula 1 car revealed, a touch of disappointment could be felt.
Though the fans of motor sport revel in the technicalities of mechanics and regulations that the sport provides, there is also a sense of bitterness when a car is not aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
Designers and engineers are paid bucket loads of cash to do what others cannot. Yet when you see the results of their efforts after months of waiting and you say to yourself, “what were they thinking?”, you are forgiven if you feel a tad frustrated.
Adrian Newey, Red Bull Racing’s chief technical officer, is considered to be the best in his profession.
He has designed multiple championship winning cars and when faced with ridiculous technical and bodywork regulations, he has continued to make his cars look good.
The RB10 is no exception to this.
Whilst other teams have tried to be ‘clever’ with their front wing designs, Newey has employed simplicity to come to his aid and in turn, produce a visually pleasing and appealing piece of machinery.
