Spot the difference - Eagle-eyes take on the Renault rear wing

Published by Mr. C

Give that man Ted Kravitz some kind of award. It doesn't matter what for, lets just celebrate the man that is Ted. This week the guy produces the goods again, with a unique insight into Renault's resurgent confidence this past week or so:

There’s something really secret at the back end of the Renault...because in Indianapolis they had a security guard on the grid, positioned at the rear wing, stopping anyone from looking too closely at the rear of the car.

Now it's pretty clear that the Renault team feel they have something to shout about. During their podcast last week, Pat could be heard raising the expectations for France quite significantly, and the team have begun to restructure their aero department, meaning that at least part of their initial 2007 problems have been solved (you don't change anything in F1 until you fully understand a particular problem).

Having been at the Silverstone test last week and having taken a number of photos of the rear of the Renault, I have to admit, I can't see what's changed. Yes, they were running a different rear wing from the US and Canadian GP's (more sculpted), but the suspension and diffuser look pretty similar to previous incarnations. Take a look:

Anyone else know what's changed?
