Ora quel filo è ben teso in camera da letto, a un palmo dal materasso: l'abilità richiesta per camminarci sopra è la stessa, ma la sfida è cambiata per sempre".

Either there is some technology being shared between the two RB teams or STR simply carbon copied the front wing philosophy RBR uses.

But which directs airflow to a completely different body.

The wing on this launch is 90% the exact same as last years launch wing, the change is what came during 2012 season.

And endplates stem from STR6

Any rear shots? On first glance - different sidepods, modesty panel, front brake ducts, camera pods mounted between FW pylons + they've gone for gold/bronze wheels this time.
