Red Bull RB16 Speculation Thread

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.

What Ihave noticed of the years is RedBull NEVER gives sneak peaks of the current car!
Well even at 16 Februari, they wont show the real " new " car. Just look at Mercedes. Even at the first week of testing they didnt show the real thing ;)

Of course it's not gonna be 100% Melbourne spec. But we will see the overall concept already. All that talk about not seeing the car in testing is a bit exaggerated. You want to have as much testing time as possible.
Not showing up with the "real" car just for the purpose of hiding it will make even less sense this year as testing is reduced to just 6 days overall.

What Mercedes have done last year with spec B in week 2 is not something you see every year. And they did it because they needed more time to get it ready.

Sidepods looks tight as always, but the engine cover doesnt slope down as early as the Ferrari

And yes, that nose is really something :roll: :lol:

Double boomerangs as on the Haas and Ferrari.

Nice little wings next to the S-duct too; So far, the cars are converging in their approach.
