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.

That is fake… It’s the same account that supposedly watched the session and said that the RB18 was wearing a “white camo livery”… Don’t believe a word

Look at the nose, look at the suspension arms, look at the radiator openings!

The suspension is very interesting. Does the top arm look like a single element?
