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.

Being a racing driver means you are racing with other people. And if you no longer go for a gap that exists, you are no longer a racing driver because we are competing, competing to win...

Macca style exhaust 3-1 RB Style Exhaust. Beginning to look like a bit of a spec series.

Rather a bulbous nose on this FI car. Glad to see a modesty panel on the car.

PDR cutting a lonely figure too.

In addition to the now classic bulge under the nose cone, I think they added a bulge on each side of it...

Looks relatively simple to competition.

Only interesting bit is visible line of the modesty panel.
