They are the EQ brand blue color if I'm not mistaken.

Very interesting, thanks!

I guess it will be top secret, but I wonder what´s the technology of each module


BTW, will teams develop their own batteries or there´s still a single battery manufacturer in 2019-20 season?

Great video, thanks!

Then I guess those 18650 cells must be very low discharge rate and lighter, otherwise energy density wouldn´t improve, as A123 cells are high power so they surely are heavier. Otherwise the whole battery would be composed of those cells

A123 have an added advantage, they can be fully discharged without damaging the cells

One of the slightly less horrendous liveries. I hate those cars so much. They look like child's toys.
