No, may be similar to the 2018 one but it is new. Definitely NOT the 2017 chassis, the sidepods/impact structures and bulkhead are completely different.Manoah2u wrote: ↑Wed Feb 27, 2019 10:07 amso could that actually mean they're using the same monocoque design for a 3rd season now?DiogoBrand wrote: ↑Wed Feb 27, 2019 4:24 amAt first I tought so as well, and it would be legal to use the same monocoque since there are no rule changes like the addition of the Halo. But then I went looking to see if there were any aero bits attached there, and what I found is that the same attachment points were there last year, but they were also left blank.roon wrote: ↑Wed Feb 27, 2019 2:57 am
In previous seasons they've mounted testing hardware there. If not that, and if legal, I wonder if they would reuse a monocoque from last season.

or even worse - could they be using the literal same monocoque for the 3rd season? so one that was made in 2017?
