Hoovers, Dildos, Tripods And Any Other Name You Want To Call Them. in F1 Discussions Posted February 3, 2014 · Report post @Andres: I quite like the 6-wheeler Tyrell. Both aesthetically and the engineering reason behind it. @Kool and the Gang: I agree re the Caterham. I was kinda hoping the little guys might come up with a trick, but....no @Ricardo: I was thinking the same thing today - the rule should state a minimum width for a minimum length from the tip going rearwards, like 150mm or 200mm wide. The old noses wouldn't have been any wider than that at the tips. @The Universe: I was thinking, and maybe hoping, that we would see noses not unlike McLaren had only three years ago when it was low. Obviously that style of nose no longe stacks up in the wind tunnel, but surely it worked back then, so why not now?
