2018 Formula 1


#41

#42

Meh…


#43

#44

Meh…


#45

#46

Plus Ian’s handy work…


#47

These are just the same cars painted different colours aren’t they?


#48

I like that one :grin:


#49

Pretty much but that’s typical convergence over the course of stable regs.

I like the treatment of the Sauber’s Halo leading edge. Is it a slot-gap or a Gurney ?


#50

Further reading shows that it’s a slot-gap to tidy up the turbulence from the round section tube that makes up the Halo. Nice.


#51

Meh, needs a green cloverleaf.


#52

Not sure I want to meet the bloke all these car-shaped flip-flops will fit tho’… :+1:


#53

Not sure if image shows smoke from the Honda engine or just a wet track…

:thinking:


#54

The Ferrari looks a bit OTT.


#55

Is it red?


#56

Not dramatically different to the others.


#57

There is one way it differs - some odd boxy treatment of the wing mirrors - presumably some sort of airflow splitter?

Bet that gets some close reglatory scrutiny for the few millionths of second difference it may arguably make!


#58

regulatory


#59

More meh!


#60

They don’t allow me anywhere near the design!

My job is to ensure that the concept and then the actual car has as much performance as we can put into it.

We will see how good a job my department has done to make the car much quicker than last year in the first few races.
