Renault Sport F1 R.S.17

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.

Yeah.
IMO, the only parts that didnt really change are the parts colored red here.
So this FW is an evolution but it seems to be a 90% new wing
https://www.pic-upload.de
Upper flaps are obviously new, as is the flap adjuster pod to accommodate the new flaps, but nothing more than that...
Not only that.
The gap between the wing and the endplate (yellow rectangle) is smaller. That means the main wing is different (it's quite visible) and is larger, as well as the superior flaps.
The main cascade/the endplate has a more aggressive 'outwash' fence (red rectangle)
And other photos show that the back of the endplate has been reshaped. Old one is rounded (blue rectangle). New one is a rectangle :wink: https://i58.servimg.com/u/f58/14/79/55/26/c-fdfe10.jpg
