    Reading Renault f1’s website, it says one of their upgrades was a “Blown floor”. Does anybody know and care to explain what this is and how it works? If Renault introduce a blown wing to the next gp and have a blown floor as well, could they possibly be the fastest?

    by blow floor they are refering to the blown difusor, the difusor is part of the floor. I dont think renault have any plans to introduce a blown rear wing anyway.

    very correct, it’s the exhaust wich blows air on the diffusser.

    If it was something else they wouldn’t just say it on their website :)
