    Like this quote about the guy(Turrini), in this particular case, the RS17's livery and overall functionallity look great for Renault since its been awhile they have "officiallly" made their own car.

    Agreed, those suits need to go back to the drawing board.

    heres a vid(3min50sec) of MB actually talking about fuel flow rates, duration of full throttle increase, and an the increase in strength on the power unit due to lateral loads on the engine.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zvivLc8UtIY

    we could see some impressive quali and lap times since the early 2000's due to the new regs and tyres plus aero package....sources say a 3 to 5sec drop from last years.

    they look for real.....you can do that with paint....like a "ghost" effect on the borders of the paint scheme. Plus you can add "reflective" flakes into the paint as far as how fine you want the flakes that way when light hits it...it has some reflectivity.

    It looks like a light effect. But if it is the real thing, that neon-glittery won't work in broad daylight...

    If it is reflective paint, it sure would look nice at: Singapore, Bahrain, and Abu Dhabi though

    Utterly hideous, no?! Do something with the fin for crying out loud, don't just paint it as a plain block of silver. So boring and ugly!

    Stepped nose, and doodle nose. Not cool not cool. I hope for their sake it's fast, but it certainly doesn't look it.

    I just realized...look at how much "real-estate" that front nose takes up with all its fins/elements/cascades. Imagine if they "bump" on the first lap first turn....all that carbon-fibre breaking into pieces....."I've got a puncture!!!" "I've got a puncture!!!!!"

    I take back everything I said about the Sauber. If this is the alternative, the Sauber is a work of art.

    I though the Sauber looked really good, the Renault looked ugly and this one is uglier. So the Force India car with the Renault driver's overalls then ?
