  • 2012 Formula 1 - Force India





    Think they will have room to mount cameras right on the tip of the nose.

        Agreed.

        The wing on the nose is rather interesting

          It's not a wing though, they're camera pods. I think they're required to be in certain spots on the car, and well, it appears they've run out of room haha.

            I think it looks a lot better on track.

                The best of the new noses for sure IMO. I like it.

                    I realize that this is probably a very stupid question, but I don't follow F1, and am not familiar with the rules at all

                    Are F1 teams allowed to design their own bodies? Or do they have some guidlines to conform to? I keep seeing cars that look the same from the front wheels back, but each nose looks different.

                    Pardon my noobism.

                      They must conform to FIA/F1 rules and regulations, but the teams, or constructors are allowed to design whatever they please as long as it falls within the guidelines. Most cars have a similar design, simply because that is whats known to be the most effective at the time (Ferrari for example used a front wing based heavily off of the RB design, as at the time, that was highly effective)

                        There are very strict bounding boxes for most portions of a Formula 1 car, but there is also a lot of freedom for designs. The other major thing is almost all constructors have a team of lawyers on staff to interpret the rules and try to help the designers exploit loopholes in the rules (double-deck diffuser from 2009, F-duct system from 2010, exhaust blown diffuser from 2011). The rules can be found on the FIA's website, but be forewarned - they are very confusing.
