    RB's quite extreme Sidepod.



    From above It pretty much looks the F1-75

    That undercut is unbelievable. Also look how big and far forward the tunnel strakes are. Teams are allowed 4, and Red Bull are using 2 as far forward as they can get. Surely this is to control the wake off the front tire as quickly as possible and then out wash it away from the undercut. Meanwhile the inner strake helps grab all that juicy air to feed to the undercut and down the body. Their floor appears appears to be the most genuine too, at least I hope so because they have all sorts of tricks going on.

    Aerodynamically, this car scares me the most. But Newey has made some impressive designs before that struggled with cooling or other reliability issues.

    I would count on it. Day 1 testing is always about system checks, calibrations, checking for any mechanical issues. I doubt Ferrari will even have an aero update until the next test.

    That little cut in the floor (below the sensor stuck to the sidepod), I wonder if that is a vortex generator that curls inwards and downwards and seals the floor making the rear diffuser more efficient. Or maybe the vortex curls upwards and in and pushes aero between the rear tire, not only reducing drag but increasing the flow to the beam wing and top of the diffuser which increases downforce.

    Hope you are right. And other years we use to say the same thing and in the end we didn't brought anything special. I'm a bit concerned because I see almost everybody else bringing different floors/wings etc from their launch spec and we are the same.

    RB18's radical beamwing to include the rear diffuser.

    It's not how start but how you finish.

    OH MY GOD! What is that Red Bull?! How do they do that? They fight till the last race and yet they still came up with one of the freakiest solution to the new regs cars there is. Now I am worried.

    Yep that REDBULL looks pretty scary. It's the most extreme Carano then ours. Hope our guys found something really special with our design

    This is insane... Suddenly our car looks basic compared to this.

    I think that's because a lot of the launch cars were only digital renders and effectively a fake. Ferrari was one of the few that launched a real car.

    It looks STUNNING!
    I just hope and pray Ferrari can come out fighting, given the RBRs aggressive approach.

    I think Red Bull have come up with a triple diffuser.

    Sidepod angle between Mercedes vs Ferrari vs RedBull. RedBull's design the most radical.

    As far as i know , there is a Live timing at the track. So reporters from track manually reporting/editing it.

    Here it is
