I can't see much details on this car, but I don't aspect much details because of the new Honda motor.

Particularly interested in the rear of the car. Will they finely package that Honda or give it some space?

Hopefully get the overhead view soon.


Does that rear wing look a little different or is it just the illusion as they take the cover off?

This view appears to show some vortex generators on the upper edge of the nose. Interesting!

The mid side section drops down pretty darn low!

These floor slots have become quite a feature this year already... I wonder if we’ll see the likes of Ferrari, Mercedes and redbull go down that path or if it’s just not worth it... interesting that none of the top 3 thought of it/felt it was necessary...

I guess we can finally put to bed the rumors going around every season that teams will revert to a Merc nose. Having run with it for just one season it is clear that there is no silver bullet (pardon the pun) to be gained...

Let's hope Honda are on it and the package evolves fast!
