Ted Kravitz Raises Doubts Over RB20 Nose Design: ‘Haven’t Actually Shown Us

Ted Kravitz’s scrutiny of the RB20’s nose and front wing design casts doubt on Red Bull’s presentation ahead of the Bahrain Grand Prix, raising questions about potential changes to come.

Key Takeaways:

  • Ted Kravitz questions the RB20’s nose and front wing design, anticipating alterations before the Bahrain Grand Prix.
  • Red Bull’s RB20, featuring Mercedes-inspired elements, garners attention and speculation within the F1 community.
  • Despite initial scrutiny of the car’s bodywork, Kravitz’s focus lies on the unexpected design element of the front wing.

Amidst the fervor surrounding the unveiling of Red Bull Racing’s RB20, veteran Sky Sports F1 pundit Ted Kravitz has brought attention to potential uncertainties surrounding the car’s nose and front wing design. While the RB20 has garnered admiration for its departure from previous designs and incorporation of Mercedes-inspired features, Kravitz’s observations have sparked speculation about the true nature of the car’s aerodynamic components.

During the car’s debut and subsequent pre-season testing, Kravitz highlighted a particular feature on the nosecone—a strip secured by screws—that has left observers questioning its purpose and potential implications for performance. Despite expectations for alterations to the design, Red Bull has yet to reveal any significant changes, leaving Kravitz and others intrigued about the true nature of the RB20’s aerodynamic profile.

Kravitz’s remarks, as captured during Sky Sports F1 coverage, encapsulate the uncertainty surrounding the RB20’s design:

“Just below that sticker which says Red Bull Racing [on the nose], everyone was expecting that panel of carbon fibre to be a trick and to be removed. And for there to be just a join between the nose and that second main plane on the front wing. Well not so. But that doesn’t mean that it’s not there, it’s just they haven’t actually shown us what the real nose looks like.”

With the Bahrain Grand Prix fast approaching, the speculation surrounding Red Bull’s RB20 continues to intensify. As fans and experts eagerly await further insights into the car’s aerodynamic configuration, all eyes will be on Red Bull Racing as they aim to maintain their competitive edge in the fiercely contested world of Formula 1.
