Lotus E23 Mercedes

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.

Lower radiator in the right hand sidepod looks a bit strange and seems to have louvers behind it, like the F15t.

I'm pretty sure that's the heat reflective coating and not carbon fibre. The colour is a bit too light

If someone said to me that you can have three wishes, my first would have been to get into racing, my second to be in Formula 1, my third to drive for Ferrari.

Those transmissions and rear-ends look like they are waiting for the engine. Hope it shows up.

Compared to last year's Gbox (Renault PU)
The 2014 one obviously has much bigger holes on the side walls for the exhaust and the compressor air ducts
The 2015 Gbox looks a bit shorter too. It 'hosts' only the turbine.
