A testing update. They seem to be making good progress. Hope the car has some pace.

Compared to last season, it appears to have-

Slightly reprofiled nose
Inboard winglets have gone (probably low drag testing, but there may be some funky new aero going on there)
New dive planes
Squared off arches
Mirrors moulded into the bodywork
Air intake in front of the cockpit is gone
Rear arch holes are now inboard
New headlight shape
Akrapovic is online now

These aero changes aren't even what the car will have, apparently. They will change again next year so obviously they feel there's still gains to be made, which is good!

I wonder if they've had the opportunity to put it in a wind tunnel to aid these aero updates or if they're still relying on CFD.

Who's windtunnel would they use? Who does Kolles have connections to that would have one on demand?

There's a few in the UK I thought, though likely not full scale things.

When in F1 Kolles involvement with Hispania and F1 they used the wind tunnel at Mercedes and Brackley. I don’t think they’ll have been using that recently

I beg a pardon if this was mentioned somewhere above, but was there any info about new turbo layout at Nissan-Cosworth V6? It's not on the block (or is it?), so the pipes length is different - how does it affect hp and moment specs?

Should be alongside the block as on a conventional V engine. The Toyota has a similar layout.

I've found it in the Web googling most of the evening.
The layout is different (at least I think so). I wonder what was the amount of work needed to construct new inlet and outlet pipes - so they could not just use spare parts left after 2015. While it was NISMO who supplied engine, I think there are no problems with power or torque.

This is the car from 2015. The turbos are in the same place (in a different angle), but the air inlet, the exhaust exit, the intercoolers, and the cooling on the sidepods are different.






From 2016 to 2017 the rear of the car changed three times. Now there is more room for the air to go to the rear wing, and exhaust exit and cooling are different.
