    That is udder nonsense, by way of the two open vent holes on the very front of the nose, I'd say they are trying some sort of illegal F duct.

    bit of interesting stuff here

    LINK

    (you'll have to translate though)

    At home REDBULL see a red circle in the projection from the rear diffuser height ... could be a new sewage discharges .. unfortunately now there are not any photos better

    Lotus has li'ngresso instead of bellies completely changed from the presentation and the first laps and as the Toro Rosso a hole just below the opening ... the picture just below the circle clearer
