I love the hologram projector idea. I thought of maybe having a pair of machine gun muzzles peeking out from under the intake. "Watch it! Vettel on your 6!" Nah, that would never work...

Why would Red Bull want to imitate the third place team? Just razzing you. I would love to see the Ferraris and the McLarens be more competitive this year.

Out of curiosity what do you think they are talking about in the first sentence? I have a hard time converting their words into images.
What confuses me, is that there is a whopping great bulkhead in between the nose inlet and the driver, meaning 0% of that air would get to the driver anyway1.21 Open and closed sections :
A section will be considered closed if it is fully complete within the dimensioned boundary to which it is referenced, if it is not it will be considered open.
