A place to discuss the characteristics of the cars in Formula One, both current as well as historical. Laptimes, driver worshipping and team chatter does not belong here.

Did anyone else notice the neat detail of Manor's slotted vortex generators on the sidepods? Its not something I;ve seen from anyone else and proves that even without the budget, they still have the creativity to produce novel parts.

Probably a good chunk of weight reduction has come from going from a 2014 Ferria PU to the 2016 Merc PU in one jump.

I bet it's a good improvement on packaging and was the Ferrari PU at the minimum PU weight.

But don't teams like Force India struggle with weight? I'm sure they had issues in recent years.
