BBC Sport's chief F1 writer Andrew Benson:
Red Bull chief technical officer Adrian Newey has been asked about the now-famous hole in the nose of his team's car, which has been the subject of speculation since the RB8 emerged on Monday. He says: 'The slot at the base of the ramp to the nose into the front bulkhead is simply driver cooling. Traditionally that is right at the front of the nose. Really for styling as much as anything we moved it to where you now see it to break up the aesthetics of the ramp that is required by the regulations.' I'm sure there will be a sceptical response to that in some quarters, but at least everyone now knows Newey's position.
