    Definitely a looker. Hopefully, for Haas's sake, it's runs as good as it looks.

    There are lot of worthy drivers waiting for a chance. But this is still continuing with Grosjean.

    We'll definitely see a different car or cars come testing days. So maybe yes but I honestly do not know.

    To be honest, the Red Bull nose & nose cone looks super evolved. Just hoping ours is better

    Analysis RB16: Strange nose and an even narrower rear than Ferrari



    The strange nose on the RB16

    One of the very first things you notice about the new Red Bull is the complexity of the so-called 'stump' on the front of the nose. At Red Bull, there was only one hole in the past here, but now two more slots have been added at the top. All of this has the purpose of directing air to very specific places so that more downward pressure is generated on the back of the car.

    Further back we see a kind of shoehorn on the side of the nose. That is comparable to the construction that Mercedes had before, to better direct the air to the floor, as a result of which - you guessed it - more downward pressure is generated there.

    At the very top of the nose, two very small elephant species were added. These are reminiscent of the larger elephant ears that were introduced in 2008. Even Ferrari came yesterday with the reintroduction of innovation of that time: The Viking Horns!

    Front wings stay up

    Just like Ferrari, Red Bull Racing is sticking with their concept from last year. While Ferrari opts for aerodynamic efficiency, with the outer edges of the front wing running downwards, Red Bull opts for maximum downward pressure. The elements are therefore quite slanted over the entire length of the front wing.

    More detail around the cockpit

    The wing on top of the mirrors seems to be standard for the coming season. Both Haas and Ferrari, who have close cooperation, already came up with it and Red Bull has them too. Under the mirrors, the 'bargeboards' and the wings on the sidepod are a bit more complex.

    In addition to the 'headrest', we also see two small raised edges that guide the air past the bonnet to the rear, which are also new. Finally, we see here most stickers from new sponsor PayVoo, which replaces Futurocoin.

    Who has the narrowest rear? Ferrari or Red Bull?

    Ferrari yesterday proudly told how much was put into the compact design of the rear of the SF1000. But Red Bull have gone even further. From the rear wheel, we see nothing but a gaping hole. The bodywork is completely hidden in the middle. Also further forward we see that Red Bull has gone one step further than Ferrari. The curvature in the sidepods is a lot stronger, indicating that they are even smaller than the bonnet above.

    Renaults RS20 debut (at the launch as the car isn’t built yet.....)

    On this day in 1877 the company’s founder, Louis Renault (the all-powerful ‘beast of Billancourt’), was born.

    Everyone is saying how tight the Red BUll is, but I think they are forgetting that Ferrari is a lot slimmer near the air intake and still almost as slim as the Red Bull is down along the sidepods. Red Bull carries a lot of bulk up high near the air intake.

    MCL 35 High res:







    Pretty interesting looking car. Although the bargeboard area looks 'calm' compared to the SF1000 and the Red Bull, the front suspension looks intriguing. Also the sidepods (double-decker?) looks interesting as well.

    A massive change for McLaren.

    Low drag front wing philosophy and much higher rake... that makes the entire car get redesigned. Potential for big improvements over last year, but could struggle early coming to grips with it.
