Renault R30 exhaust outlets configuration from Launch to Hungary


Renault R30 , launch – periscope exhausts

 

    Renault R30 , as all modern Formula 1 cars , had initially periscope style exhausts , a configuration first seen at Ferrari F310B  back in 1997 .

                At Valencia Renault raced  the exhaust blown diffuser system pioneered by Red Bull RB6  .  Renault’s unique design though  features a metal plate (cover) bending inwards , behind the exhaust pipes acting  as a venturi channel and two vertical fences to offer a better guide for  hot air towards  the  diffuser .

       The design was further developed at  Hungary with the sidepods and exhaust pipes elongating to the rear . As a consequence the thermal protective cover and the vertical inner fence were moved to the rear also . The metal cover is now spotted under the rear’s suspension wishbones .  The reason why Renault moved the pipes to the rear might be because it is needed a stronger interaction between the hot emissions with the diffuser or  because  the longer exhaust pipes tune better with the engine or even both .
