F1 Testing – Hi Res Photo Exhaust Comparison

by on March 4, 2013

To go along with the collection of photos depicting front wings on the 2013 F1 challengers, I also decided to do the same for the new exhaust configurations.  You can take a quick look and do your own comparison.

The big story again this year, will surely be the Pirelli tyres and their new compound compositions.  I’m certain this element of the championship will keep teams guessing and the outcomes unpredictable.

We cannot however discount the second biggest story, which is bound to be the Coanda Exhausts.  We are seeing more teams try to gain an advantage by blowing hot exhaust in away to gain an aerodynamic advantage.

Coanda Effect:

Coanda effect is the phenomena in which a jet flow attaches itself to a nearby surface and remains attached even when the surface curves away from the initial jet direction.
