Frankly, Im loving this treatment very much. Almost makes me wish this design was the 2017 new spec. The end plates are magnificent. Also eager to hear driver impressions...

RedBull not as visually obvious where they're simulating the 2017 downforce levels (perhaps baseline with 2015/2016 levels first?)

Beam wing and skirts.

It looks to have a beam wing and modified diffuser. They look to be adding downforce just in a different way.

Given the manner in which each team has chosen to simulate 2017 downforce levels, the aero gap between Ferrari and Red Bull is clearly massive.

Ferrari showed up with a barn door attached to the back of its car; Red Bull runs less wing.

I don't see the skirts on the Red Bull - where are you seeing them?

Couldn't get much of a view of the diffuser either but must be something - beam wing alone surely not enough to get close to kind of loads we're expecting next year.

Remarkable how much difference the tyres make - and the wider rear wing too, even when high - and how that aesthetic improvement just makes such a difference to perception.

Cool looking cars are ultimate more interesting than ugly ones (you heard it here first!)

On the side of the floor. They look about 50mm deep . Unlike the Ferrari they don't look designed to run along the ground. Probably just down to the reference plane.

The skirts are not touching the ground like the Ferrari ones did but they are visible here as a curtain from the floor. Beam wing also visible.

In the rear vies, RedBull have added a much large additional flap on the diffuser to replace the usual little version they all run these days.

They appear to be directional tyres but they aren't mounted directionally. Strange.
