2019 car comparison thread

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.

Fabulous shots. I assume Degner? The Red Bull seems to roll much less than the other 2, suggesting a very different balance of roll stiffnesses.

Another thing noticable from these shots is how much more bodywork the Ferrari has behind the sidepods compared to the other 2 [look at the rear wishbone area]. Granted this is displaced to behind the airbox whereby the Ferrari is much shorter and narrower. 2 different concepts in cooling, different rear suspension geometry, great photos...

Extra cooling for all teams in Mexico due low density air levels
