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 front undercut is, indeed. But normal side and rear undercuts.

RedBull is going the Aston Martin route?

That bodywork infront of the sidepod inlet is intresting. Is it that far back??

That sidepod inlet is… Very different… Love the uniqueness and out of the box thinking!

There's a hole in the top of the floor which appears to be ducted. A cooling inlet perhaps? I'm sure they won't be allowed to feed air to the underside like that.

Interesting mix of concepts… A little bit of Aston Martin, a little bit of Alpine… Kinda in between both… Super interesting… Red Bull didn’t disappoint!
