Are those sidepods really Narrow or is it just the angle?

To me the angle of the nose looks different

Those sidepods are tiny and interesting aero around the sidepods.

Looks like they have kept the crash structure at the top and used that as a wing.

I know livery talk belongs in the Team Thread....but that livery is making it quite tricky to pick out details...

For instance it took me ages to even notice the wings above the sidepod intakes!!

Looks like the first Halo with a proper fairing we've seen. Definitely looks better that way.

Interesting that they seem to have retained their unique nose as well. Must be an advantage they're seeing with that.
In 2007 I had the chance to go to a meet-and-greet with an F1 test driver. I decided not to as I didn't think he'd even amount to much...he was the BMW Sauber test driver and his name was Sebastian Vettel...
