Mir fällt nur das Nickname -> "DER ELEFANT" "
Über die sogenannte "Neuigkeit" und die Effizienz, nachdem ich das Folgende gelesen habe, mache ich mir Sorgen

An American race-car designer has hit out at reports from across the Atlantic that BMW-Williams' new FW26 Formula One car is especially 'innovative.'
The former engineer, Mike Devin, said the FW26's nose and 'tusks' resemble a Brabham he built for Johnny Rutherford to drive in the Indy 500 of 1972. He said: 'It had real, real high downforce, but also high drag.'
Williams' technical director Patrick Head said the innovation was the result of hundreds of hours in his team's state-of-the-art wind tunnel.
Asked where Devin got the idea, he replied: 'No idea. We dreamed it up.'
It's driver, Rutherford, said the similar design branded 'tusked' by Europeans was known in America, in the Seventies, as the 'Scotch tape dispenser.' He added: 'It was zoomy-looking. It was new, different. It was also a failure. The big cavern in front of the car gathered all the air.'
Mike Devin concluded that had his Brabham been fitted with a more conventional nose, Rutherford may well have won the Indianapolis championship.
