Lotus Renault R31 – Floor revisions at last winter test


 

The larger new vanes under the nose increased the strength of  air flowing under the nose and around the sidepod bottoms and so Renault like Ferrari made some modification to  the floor and particularly to the floor side fences . The half oval former fence is now replaced with a combination of two completely different fences . The first resembles to the old one but is now smaller and a bit to the front  and aims to improve the efficiency of the floor turning vanes  . The second fence is quite long , stepped and  prevents  any flow mixing between the under and over floor air layers  and also  has a slit to bleed air to cut drag .
