    which will be the best concept?
    Very nice to see very different cars this year
    Same one the engine side: that of Mercedes seems bigger (it was expected), but also positioned backward on the Aston and forward on the Hass

    Mclaren sidepods are like an in-between of Hass's swept down pods and & Aston's higher, longer pods. Wonder which philosophy is going to be the right one.

    So far there's been variations in a lot of places, this can only make for an interesting start to the season. Of course that's not to say the usual suspects would of got it right again and the midfield, tail end have it wrong but hopefully it can spring a few surprises.

    Just occured to me... how is VELO advertisment on a car legal, when it's a nicotine product?

    Mclaren is still sponsored by BAT. It's legal. I'm sure Mclaren won't run the advertisment in Europe but in other countries were it is legal to run the advertisement.

    Tracks have alcohol sponsorship where it is legal. In the middle east, alcohol advertisment on tracks is not legal.

    Rumours circulating ferrari have some aero issues.Engine wise we are on par with redbull and mercedes.i don't know what to believe or what story holds more credence than the other.I will wait until completion of testing before making any premature statements,one rumour which does hold value is that the car is stunning and full of innovations, weather its fast will be discussions for another day.

    Me too. I am waiting for Q3 in first race to make any conclusions.
    Regarding your last sentence, unfortunatelly F1 is not a beauty contest...

    Agree
    Really don't anderstand how they could have doubts now on their aero
    I can expose the reasons why i don't trust this, but, for me, some people are using the fact that, unless they hit the track, they can't be sure of how will work their concept in comparation to others, to write things

    I don't want to annoy anyone but, article after article in the medias, am I alone in finding that C Sainz is anything but discreet and modest?

    Since he's outscored Charles in the WDC, he's become the sweetheart of the media.
    Though, he's been the media's sweetheart since his Mclaren days.
    Honestly, he's always been a bit outspoken.

    Also, I don't think he has a great relationship with RBR and Verstappen.
    That's probably why he's been against the FIA.
    Just an opininon*

    Hard to analyse
    They have to use the same car as RB this year, no?

    Just to be clear, i am not against it. It just seems weird, that some tobaco products and branding is banned while other is ok to be shown.

    Unfortunatly, we should see another fake car..
    Same strategy than RB probably, even more if they use the RB car
    As the Barcelona test will be behind closing doors, we could have to wait weeks before we really see the cars. Sad

    You're right. But it's an addictive substance being sold as a tobaco product (even though there is just an extract or something) and it's mainly being bought by 18 year old "kids" feeding their addiction to cigarets. I don't know, to me it's basically the same thing, but I am not an expert in legislation. I just sell this stuff.

    The Alpha Tauri looks so sleek! That car is stunning.

    Impossible to know, for now, which is the best sidepods shape, but fact is that all are differents!
    Another thing is that nobody follows the Fia car's cooling inlets
    In the end, i wonder if the fia is sure to obtain the desired result in terms of aero direction...
    Also, not sure teams will have enough budget to test all these solutions. These budget restrictions could have an heavy impact on top teams this year, in case if they start with an relative uncompetitive concept

    Those sidepods are really small... I don't understand how the engine will be cooled sufficiently this year. I haven't really followed the changes all that closely though, so I guess it's been explained somewhere already.
    Rest in Peace Leza, you were a true warrior...
