2020 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.

The McL is very slender in the sidepods, yes, but the ferrari has such a tiny airbox compared to both McL and Red Bull - which should help the center of gravity for Ferrari. Other than that there seems to be some convergence in at least the RB/McL and MB shape, which could mean the respective engine performance becomes a bigger factor. Ferrari is a bit of an outlier still, with both airbox and front wing. Curious to see how that works out and if they can be more consistent than last year.

Slightly off topic.
This is how much the Marcedes has grown behind the driver since 2014.

Yep, the lines and the exact placement of camera and driver are questionable.

Nicely shows how the bodywork has been shrink wrapped as the hybrid cars have been developed.

Since 2017 the cars are much wider though, part of that shrink wrap illusion comes from that. But generally you are right, 2019 to 2020 shows how many cars are much tighter packed.
