This serrated bargeboard looks cool.

Where did they spend their tokens? Sidepod shape seems to have reverted back to 2019, 2018 style instead of the sort of Mercedes style they tried last year

Not gonna use studio pics to compare rake but it's interesting they're still sticking with high rake, although to be fair even if they wanted to switch concepts all the frozen components wouldn't allow them to do so effectively

I think suspension might have been one token - they got new one last year, but that seemed to need some optimising. Even if it worked well at end of 2020, I am sure renewed design is better, esp. when incorporating changes to deal with new floor-rules at the back. Maybe cooling too. In the end the car was good at end of season. Honestly, I am glad to see a tweaking but nothing big.

Interestingly the cape has been shrunk, it now starts further back

Would have preferred if Alpha Tauri also got the new suspension but lets see how the cars go. Cannot wait for Bahrain.

Look how sidepods slope down earlier, and pay attention to the white HONDA sticker, you can see how much the shape has changed at the back.
Absolutely agree with this. Seems near the Honda logo a bit bulkier but a huuge undercut underneath... probably has to do with the smaller floor at the back.

The Honda label behind Redbull seems a bit more squarer although front on view car seems to be tucked in a bit more. Would be interesting to see side by side with McLaren and Alpha.

Treading water comes to mind. I guess they’re hoping Honda make substantial gains.
