Much more traditional sidepods. I wonder if they are going down a route that allows them to understand their car a lot more?

The first thing that stands out is that Airbox, very unique, very high, and very small

Tight car, but I guess we got spoiled with by the other launches so far... Let's hope they are working on a good way and know what they are doing.

I think this is last year car with new livery. It's not even evolution of 2017 car.

I think there are a few more slots here and there but it looks very, very similar to the 2017 car.
