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.

Also 3 new vertical slots in the main board.

Ricciardo: “It will look cool, there’s a lot you’ll see on the sidepods and that, it’s going to look pretty crazy.
“If it’s not faster, at least we’re going to look cool.”


Seems like Red Bull is holding stuff back for tomorrow.

Apparently the upgrade is quite significant. Leading edge of the floor behind the also upgraded bargeboards is reworked, sidepods are shaped differently because the internal cooling system and the internal airflow changed.

More information (AMuS)

Big stuff from Red Bull in barge board area, they are leaders in development of this area for sure. And I feel they are still just warming up.
And they call it a stall. A STALL!

Why don't the other 2 top teams do anything in that area in your opinion?

Looks like they're using the old frontwing for now. I wonder if they'll revert to the Baku frontwing in Free Practice or perhaps it was just a low drag version for circuits like Baku, Monza, etc.

Seems what AMUS wrote is true. Redesigned cooling. Here is the old layout for comparison.
