It’s only the second month of 2013 and the formula one teams are announcing their prized contenders for the new year. The biggest change is the FIA technical rules allow for a “decorative piece” (a.k.a. vanity plate) to be added to the nose to show a more atheistically pleasing nose. Long gone are the stepped noses? Nope, not if Adrian Newey, Infiniti Red Bull chief designer, has anything to say about it. Little technical changes were put into effect this year since 2014 will call for another round of overhauls, including engines. Looking at the press release photos the only major aero change are the fins located on top of the air intake side funnels which are most notable on the Caterham and the Force India. The only team missing from the lineup is Williams who will be releasing their updated car on February 19th 2013. In the meantime enjoy the newest contenders of the 2013 Formula 1 season.
