    There are definitely male and female cars.

    Also mclaren lineup looks like Jensen taking his prepubescent kids for a walk around his new toy. I know it's all the rage to have young drivers but it just looks retarded.

    It's always the teams out smarting the FIA

    about 500 engineers vs 5 is never going to be be a fair fight!

    im guessing considering whitmarsh isn't in a single one of the launch videos and Sam Michael is in the main ones that he is taking over - no announcement though yet? Or did I miss that?

    Just looked again at the press release, first listed is Neale (as MD) and then Michael (as SD), maybe the rumours about Boulier are true and he is going to be TP?

    by round 3 you wont even notice the noses anymore. they're better looking than that stepped style anyway.
    That's something I love about F1 in-particular. Going to be great to see what the boffins at RB have done and how they've worked the new rules.

    Why are the sides (labia majora?) of the lotus nose different lengths?

    They have Newy'ed the rules.

    Of the two tusks, the longer of the two is considered the nose, the shorter is just consider part of the crash structure. This allows premium airflow.




    When Lotus released the first digital render of its new E22, it wasn't so obvious, but under closer scrutiny and then with the arrival of a second, aerial shot, Lotus's rather unusual nose becomes more apparent.

    The idea of using a twin-nose was likely considered by many teams, as it leaves an opening for airflow where it's most important. However the rules don't allow it.

    "It [the nose] must have a single external cross section, in horizontal projection, of more than 9000mm˛," read the 2014 technical regulations.

    Lotus have obviously interpreted the rules differently and the answer can be found in the length of each individual 'tusk'. As the image above shows, the right 'tusk' is longer. This alone is deemed part of the nose as it meets the 9000mm˛ measurement.

    The left 'tusk' isn't deemed part of the nose as it's slightly shorter. It simply forms part of the crash structure - an area which caused Lotus some problems and is the reason behind their testing delay.

    The benefit of the 'double-tusk' is that it places the nose in the most beneficial area compared to the 'ant-eater' solution used by both McLaren and Williams so far.

    It creates a channel for the airflow to pass under the nose, toward the turning vanes underneath and is therefore spread more equally and less turbulently along the cars sidepods.

    The bigger question for Lotus now is, if they have a trick like this, which could be an early advantage (nee.. Brawn DDDF) then why did Boullier leave ? And could Romain, do a Button in '14.

    Can't they just write the rule where it says the nose must look exactly like a Jordan 191 and be done with it? That Lotus looks retarded, who cares if it works better than the McLaren (which looks better but not by much)

    That would be good.

    "Despite any actual wording in the rules or loopholes you may find, our aim is for the car to look like image xyz in the location in question under clause abc.12.34. Resemblance will be judged by the current season X Factor UK judges. Should they determine non-near enough-likeness, you will be deemed to not meet the regulations"

    The Lotus unequal length tusks are an example of how any team may be able to come up with a race winning feature for 2014. It's going to be an interesting year.

    As far as the rules go all that needs to be done is to mandate that the nose must be central. Easy peasy, FIA should hire me to oversee their rule making

    It could come down to Lotus "winning by a nose" in a photo finish...

    could also be a complete and utter fail ala Williams walrus or lotus's own backward exhaust.

    I'd like to see Durex or Trojan sponsor McLaren and have them airbrush a jimmy hat on that nose.
