    Ah the Red Bull! The first time we get a chance to see some cool new bits.

    Weird new air inlet, unlike the Ferrari/Haas/Williams solution but a similar sort of idea. Plus funky bent wishbones.

    Side pod deflectors have gone from last year's Ferrari style to Mercedes.

    Can't tell if it looks more like a fighter jet, spaceship or boat, but it looks great.

    It really looks like a spaceship... not a car. Not the definitive colors, but beauty. Forza Max and Richiardo !!

    Sauber and Renault shown off. Renault seems very boring, to be honest, but the Sauber has some asro bits on the Halo and interesting sidepods.

    The Renault is like last year's car, just paintend differently.
    Not impressed.

    Very interesting side pods, airbox and Force India nose. Side pod deflectors are really simple. Also they've gone to the Ferrari style of rear wing support.[​IMG]

    It is the most excited I've been pre-season for quite some time now. Really looking forward to seeing these cars getting raced.

    No good images to see what's going on around the side pods and coke bottle, yet. Wheelbase looks a lot shorter and the bardgeboards and deflectors look very very aggressive. Sticking to old style air intake.

    Love the livery on the Merc, but really curious to see what McLaren did; interesting sidepods from the shot

    Drop dead gorgeous.

    I think I have a thing for side pods.

    Aside from the Indy paint job, this is quite underwhelming. Like the Renault, I can't imagine this is anywhere near the finished product and we'll see a much different aero kit at testing.

    Oh yeah, absolutely.
    Last year they covered the diffuser at the presentation, they are not showing their cards yet.
    They said already there will be a consistent upgrade for Melbourne.

    I wonder how is that floor not going to flex?
    Maybe they found something really worth pursuing at Mclaren

    Shame about the nose and those pitot tubes are awfully conspicuous.
