    That reminded me the Brabham-Alfa from the 70's. Now that's a livery!

    Well you know testing is getting close when the team trucks start showing up at Barcelona. Sauber, Renault & Red Bull are there... now, so OK, I am starting to get a little excited.

    Pics on twitter at @OfficialMinis , tried posting but no luck due to suspect computer skills?

    1 Week... until Winter Testing !!!!
    All the talk, all the rumors coming to an end & we still won't know anything for sure until Melbourne

    But there will be plenty to speculate about.

    After the Manor and the Williams, another letdown.
    A few notes: the ugly roll hoop/air intake is inspired by the 2010 Mercedes one, no new sponsors and the livery isn't that good (gold, really?)... although it is way better than the white/grey from a few years back!

    The more I look at it, the more I'm puzzled by it.
    So the 2017 season has brand new rules, and what does Sauber? Resurrects a 7 year old concept (the airbox from the Mercedes W01).
    The sidepods are as massive as the ones on last year's car (just compare them to the Williams ones)
    Positive thoughts: the air deflectors on each side of the cockpit protections look good, as the bargeboards do, the rear wing looks interesting

    I know that presentation car and one in Australia grid and way to different, but any way Williams and Sauber are nothing spectacular. Honestly I don't know what was I expecting, after so many hyped about that cars will be more aggressive....

    Better not set your expectations too high:
    This is the render of the FW36 from 2014, a year that also had huge changes to the rules (the image is copyrighted by Williams, so it's an official one)
    http://www.f1fanatic.co.uk/wp-conten...-fw36-2014.jpg

    This is the version raced in Melbourne. I fail to see that many differences between both...

    We have to remember that this is the first year of new rule changes, remember in 2009 when the rules changed as well, how the front wings were basically 2 flaps on either side of the nose with none of the upper elements, and now look at them, I think by the time the middle of the season come around you will see some rapid development of the cars.

    Does anyone know why the "barge boards" (vanes next to the t-tray) are so far outward and forward in the 2017 model when compared to the 2016 model? Rules ??? I have seen these barge boards in the past when they were introduced close to the t-tray on many an F1 cars just like this particular example in the 2016. I have some understanding as to why they are there (are they to smooth out the vortices(causes drag) from the disturbed air from the tyres, suspension arms and front wing?????). If so, the reason they(barge boards) are so far outward and forward is due to a number of factors: 1.) the swept back angle of the front wing. 2.) the wider front tyres 3.) to create a low pressure effect in the area behind the barge board so air flows smoothly into the air inlet and around/side of the car.... or am I completely wrong.

    One of the many changes to the rules was those big bargeboards, yes
