    The story talks about blown diffusers as if they had been legal recently. Weren't the blow diffusers outlawed a while ago? I'm thinking end of 2010 or beginning of 2011.

    The FIA made an effective ban on blown diffusers from 2012 onward.

    Certainly looks better than Caterham's 2012 car. Damn that thing is ugly.

    I am not sure what a "blown diffuser" is, but is sounds like a good noun for my wallet after a long race weekend.
    To the right of The Sheriff. Isn't everyone?

    Looks like someone forgot to pay the aerodynamicist. That hump by the suspension can't be good for aero.
    If nothing happens and there is no one around why did it not happen?

    So sexy! Especially like this quote.


    "Hamilton, who was involved in a number of accidents with Ferrari's Felipe Massa last year, also said he was happy the car had new wing mirrors."

    Thank god they didn't go the stepped nose route, however I would imagine alot of teams will for the various reasons mentioned in this article (2012: Nose height Regulations, 2012: Nose height Regulations | Scarbsf1's Blog).
