Anteater noses for 2014 F1 cars

Toro Rosso STR9 launch nose

Nose solutions for the 2014 regulations could leave F1 cars resembling “anteaters”, the Italian magazine Autosprint has revealed.

The report published an image apparently originating from the mandatory FIA crash test undergone recently by Caterham‘s new car.

It depicts an impression of the 2014 nose on the so-called ‘control plate’ after the impact, confirming some observers’ fears that the likely solutions are aesthetically questionable.

“Notice how the nose is considerably narrower (than in 2013), for aerodynamic reasons.

“When the noses could be higher, they could be wider as they channelled air under the chassis. But a wide nose would now be a disturbance to the air flow,” correspondent Alberto Antonini explained.

Antonini said it is likely most teams will adopt similar ‘anteater’-like solutions.
