Our apologies for lack of images right now. Racing Point has not yet delivered a lot of official media of the car. We'll update with more images as soon as we get them.

Car is conservative, as is typical from this team. We’ve seen in the past how they have always been able to do well by optimizing what they had as much as possible.

Mclaren style upper rear suspension. Red Bull style side pod inlets. Looks conservative as others have pointed out for testing.

Am I seeing this correctly that they have double turning vanes here? Ie. the black part connecting from under the upper crash structure to the floor is an extra vane. Haven't seen that done before.

They had flow attachment issues early last year along the lower part of the side pod. This looks to help turn the air around there conditioning it aft where they had their previous issues.

What I find interesting is that there seems to be a panel bolted on just before the sidepod. This isn't the case with other teams(as far as I have seen)
