Strange anteater nose also on Force India VJM07

Force India's 2014 car will also feature a Williams-like 'anteater' nose.

Although the Silverstone based team beat Williams to releasing a computer-generated image of its new car, Force India's picture depicted the VJM07 only from the side.

It was therefore not possible to see if the orange, black and green car has the same 'anteater' nose as Williams'; a solution expected to be adopted up and down pitlane as teams interpret the new aerodynamic rules.

Asked what the 2014 Force India's nose looks like from the front, technical boss Andy Green answered: "Thin -- like the nose of an anteater."

Green admitted to Germany's Auto Motor und Sport that the solution is not pretty, but "function is more important than appearance".

But he also said he is expecting other teams to come up with different solutions than the 'anteater'.

"I know of three or four other concepts," said Green. "Our solution is pragmatic and conservative.

"As a smaller team, it means we could pass the crash tests without problem, and do the initial tests without worrying that we got the nose completely wrong."
