I love this STR. None of the newest "must have" Mercedes aero concepts, none of the tiny details that the teams with big money have, yet even hobbled with a 2015 engine , it's one of the best cars. Regardless of the RBT connection, STR is showing what all "lean and efficient"(the phrases a small team usually describes itself with to avoid the word "small") should aspire too. Basically they've become the new "Sauber", whilst the "real" Sauber seems to be dying on the vine.
