Being a racing driver means you are racing with other people. And if you no longer go for a gap that exists, you are no longer a racing driver because we are competing, competing to win...

In all honestly it looks a lot like the RB11... Even more to me than it looks like it's predecessor.

Nice slope on the sidepods, huge intakes though.

It leaked! Ron must be pissed :lol: Looks like evolution of last years car, which means that one must have been good enough to go further down the road.

BTW is it just me or did they intentionally angle the overhead photo to exaggerate "coke bottle" area? :D Seems like they did when looking at front end of the car and then back end which appears slightly bigger in proportions.

To me it looks more like Ferrari then RB11. RB11 has kinda curved front end, where this is pretty much straight.

The nose looks a lot like the Red Bull RB11.

Finishing races is important, but racing is more important.

For me it's the engine cover, nose, and frontwing that all look very Red Bull to me. It's probably because of Podromou, hopefully the RB12 isn't this ugly...

Basically a redbull, but it is very aggressive, in the nose and front bulk head design.

I don't like the black though. Looks like the whole grid will be dark coloured.
For Sure!!

A surprise? a Red Bull? WTF? no its basically the 'same' 2015 short nose, the same s-duct, the same sidepod and roll hoop general design with only some minor changes (the intakes for example)... it's a light evolution of the 2015 Mclaren design first of all,..
Look at last year pics....

It's what you can't see inside the car that will count 90% wether McLaren has a good season, unless the engine is powerful we won't know how good the chassis is, I think it looks nicer than last year's anyway, more serious looking
