COULD IT GET WORSE? The Lotus F1 team seems to be sticking with its 'double tusk' nose for the 2014 season. However, reports say most F1 teams will change its cars' noses. Image: Lotus F1


Only a couple of months to the usual Melbourne start of the 2014 Formula 1 racing season and the teams are exposing their new cars to the media. Ferrari showed their cars on January 25 and startled by apparently swimming against the stream with a dolphin nose.

SAKHIR, Bahrain - The sometimes ugly face of 2014 Formula 1 cars could get uglier still.

Germany's Auto Motor und Sport magazine has claimed that car designers are looking into nose solutions for the new rules that are even less attractive than those already used during testing.


With the 'gentleman's appendage', asymmetrical, and 'vacuum cleaner'-style noses already in action F1 correspondent Michael Schmidt said some all-new solutions could be seen as early as final testing in Bahrain whcih will start tomorrow (Feb 27).

Force India technical boss Andy Green said: "(In the wind tunnel) we are trying every kind of nose that is in circulation. If that is the case for Force India, then the big teams will be doing even more."

It's likely Lotus' unique double-tusk solution is causing the most head-scratching among rivals, with many perhaps not having initially considered the idea of using the concept of asymmetry.

Schmidt added: "Our spies tell us that some teams are considering 'anteater' noses that do not grow from the middle of the car, but to the left or to the right."
