Interesting front wing strake placement, they are inboard of the front tires. Most teams have them further towards the endplates.
Those are teams with higher outer sections that are trying to force a narrower and higher velocity vortex off the corner, whereas Sauber/Alfa is spilling a much larger chunk into the outboard tyre squirt area, I think, in principle, creating a larger, but softer, vortex that more completely interacts with the tyre wash. The other teams seem, by my reckoning, to be going for something more like the Y250, but this one should I think act more like the macro vortex that most teams use to keep flow attached around the sidepods.
