    Hi guys,

    Stumbled across this while browsing and gives a pretty straight forward explanation of the changes for next years engines so thought i would share :)

    http://www.jamesallenonf1.com/2013/01/a-glimpse-in-to-how-f1-will-change-in-2014/

    My question to you though is do you think we will see massive changes in aesthetic appearance of the cars next year? Usually through formula 1 history it takes a big change like this to see a sudden jump in car appearance rather than the subtle year to year changes we get.

    Interested to see what the more ''techy'' guys on here think :)

    Better cokebottles, exhaust exiting on the centerline probably like GP2 have it now and then the front wing which will be narrower. like a hybrid between 2008 and 2009 in width.
    And the low nose as well (BrawnGP)

    Posted this a while back, don´t have all the parts but it´s something at least. About the Renault V6,

    And exhaust outlet, red zone is 2012/13 and the small yellow one is 2014.

    Will the angle of the pipes still be the same in 2014?

    Ty!! :)
    2014 could possibly see the return of the blown-defuser then. :confused:

    The opposite actually since the exhausts have to be placed 100mm higher and much closer to the center line of the car, and even further back.
