The fake exit stickers are clearly visible The real exits are shown near the RB6’s floor

In an attempt to dupe its main rivals, the Red Bull Racing team has been found to have applied stickers to the top of the rear bodywork of the RB6 to mimic exhaust outlets.

This bit of brinkmanship was discovered by Sutton Images, one of the the premier motorsport photography institutions.

The stickers give the impression that the car’s exhausts exit the rear of the engine cover, when in fact the rear exhaust exits are on its rear floor.

The lengths some teams will go to!
