The modesty panel fitting is something appaling...

Either there is some technology being shared between the two RB teams or STR simply carbon copied the front wing philosophy RBR uses.

But which directs airflow to a completely different body.

This is the same FW from the last 2 seasons, nothing like RB that updates every other race almost :P

The wing on this launch is 90% the exact same as last years launch wing, the change is what came during 2012 season.

And endplates stem from STR6

Any rear shots? On first glance - different sidepods, modesty panel, front brake ducts, camera pods mounted between FW pylons + they've gone for gold/bronze wheels this time.
