Best launch ever
Okay, let's hope Ocons' description of the car is the most accurate one, because it sounds more exciting https://fr.motorsport.com/f1/news/ocon- ... k/4684185/
and that Abiteboul has decided this time (and has told to his employees*) to keep a low profile in the medias : p
*but forgot to tell Ocon
The temporary livery seems to replace the 2019 glossy black with matte black and the 2019 yellow with glossy black indeed... and that should look sweet.
It seems the engine cover "bulge" that was round the Castrol logo that every bodywork spec (low temp/high temp) of the RS.19 had, has been removed. Yes I'm analyzing the "glimpses" (wink wink Cyril)
to be fair, i can't see a single difference. I think it's the light and livery playing tricks.
I actually doubt this is the actual 2020 Renault contender, looks much more like a test livery on the 2019 contender.
rear wing, same.
rear suspension, same.
bodywork shape, same.
airbox shape, same.
camera configuration, same.
it's only a tad different camera angle and depth,
paired to a different livery.
ask me, this is the 2019 car with a 2020 test livery teaser, atleast from that angle.
It looks clearly a CGi render too, so i wouldn't be at all surprised to see some trickery like that.
Yes, the front shot suggests the nose is thinnier and rounder after the tub, i'd guess a bit mclaren-styled.
there are also some winglets above the suspension and the mirror mounting arms are wider and less diagonal.
apart from the front shot, i can't see any difference with the RS19 tbh.
