Yes Whitey - that is the old nose. They did run it a few times - presumuably by way of comparison. The engine cover they are fitting in the pics is the new one though. they seemed to have trouble fitting it at first and had to work on it with a "dremmel" type device!
That energy station is not very austrian! The need lost of wood, comfortable chairs all round, heaps of trinkets and nick knaks on all the walls and horizontal areas, and last of all heaps of steins full of red bull...
All that glass/plastic and stainless steel is very cold and quite frankly getting a bit tired.
The 60's had style, why not give it a 60's retro look?!

Ten down is a fantastic photo 'REVS SET' its like a pro photographers photo from a story on the Red Bull team, growler you should use this photo at the top of the page, when you right your next article.
I mean,..somebody has to lay the tile mats under the tree house where the tyres are stored,..for 3 and a half days use!
Dolly's are engineered especially to hold the engine cover at special fixing points,..same with the nose cone. It blows my mind to think that when a new shape car part is made, designing and manufacturing a dolly to store it on is a design process in itself. Gets to the piont where a car part is not ready to be introduced because there is no dolly to store it on!
The carbon fibre weave used by Red bulls looks to be exclusive to them. Haven't noticed other teams with that unique pronounced weave.
Also the tail piece on the top of the engine cover fin mimics that of the bulls tails. It's a very organic shape,..Is it a coincidence that it's the same shape? was the idea born from the logo and it worked? I'm sure they wouldn't have that shape on the tail piece if it didn't hold certain aerodynamic properties.
I am facinated how organic shapes end up being the best solutions,..and why shouldn't that be the case,..they have been tried, tested and refined of thousands of years.
