The Milton Keynes-based squad hopes the Adrian Newey-designed machine will continue their ultra successful title winning run in 2012 with the Renault-powered RB8.
Having taken Sebastian Vettel to the last two drivers’ titles alongside its 2010 and 2011 constructors’ crowns, Red Bull Racing’s latest design is the most eagerly awaited of the new season contenders.
Adrian Newey, the man generally regarded as the key to Red Bull’s recent domination, is again responsible for leading the RB8 design.
The car appears outwardly similar to last year’s all-conquering RB7, which won 12 out of 19 races, but features a revised nose layout and a different exhaust to accommodate this season’s rule changes.
Attention has been focused on the stepped nose design on RB8 and close inspection reveals a possible f-duct system could be in place… Does Newey have an aero secret up his sleeve with the now dubbed ‘Bull-duct‘?
