    Yes, I can't see that convoluted (I thought the new regs were going to make them simpler!) front wing surviving intact beyond FP1.

    For some reason that reminds me of when Porsche launched the Cayenne, and all the promo shots were shots of it in the dark with only the headlights on.

    Is the AT this year's minger?

    Fezza breaks cover in a launch that appeared to mostly be advertising a strange dance troupe.
    Some screen grabs before the promo shots arrive. Matt is this season's trend.

    Kinda like Mercedes' show yesterday just announcing new sponsors. Boring.

    I wonder if Ferrari changed their design philosophy from last year, be keen to see the experts write ups once it's off some dance podium.

    Except the airbox entry, the whole middle section is different...

    It it still an evo from last year, but expect everyone to do the same. There will be too much change next year and all the focus is around 2021, so no revolution (expect maybe Williams, because the car was soooo bad)

    Interesting. I've been reading that they (Ferrari) were going to increase down force big time in order to overcome last years short comings.
    Looking at that front wing, doesn't seem like more down force at all. And really just last years design.
    So I still think that this car is just showing some of the new features and that it will be quite different come Barcelona next week...

    I agree about the wings, but since several years the presentation wings are ones from the year before, sometimes modified a bit to cope with a new regulation

    Barcelona will show where they are truly heading about the front wing. Even the SF1000 will still change a lot until Melbourne the concept (low vs high) should be the same

    the first I doubt, the second will never happen. Ross cannot and will not ever go back to a team. Toto and his wife are way to tied to Merc to leave.

    As you know the former rbr team. But alpha Tauri is the name of the redbull clothing division. Makes sense as Red Bull cola is not growing at all.

    Silly season is a hell of a drug. Still, it's going to be interesting to see what Stroll comes back with in 21.
