I hate that fake inlet paint, I think highlighting the nice rectangular inlet like the classic Ferrari 640-643 series (or other 90's Grand Prix cars) would look better. Small radiator inlets are something to be celebrated, not hidden IMO.

Assuming those heavily undercut sidepods with enormous louvres are real it is interesting as to how different they are to the HAAS.
With that flat shape and those gills to bleed of heat to the top it really resembles a big wingy radiator, doesn't it!

Asymmetrical sidepod internals are nothing out of the ordinary.F1Krof wrote: ↑Thu Feb 10, 2022 3:30 pmWhat's going on here? The one pull-rod suspension on the left side is missing! Also note the left sidepod inlet has a vertical fin, whereas the right one does not have!

However, cars with long, narrow bellies will seek to mount the engine further back, and may have a short gearbox, and perhaps mount a push rod suspension. By contrast, F1 cars with short bellies will have the engine closer to the driver and will need a long gearbox. In that configuration there could be a pull-rod suspension.
The location of the radiators will also vary greatly depending on the chosen layout: there will be those who keep the elements of the cooling system above the engine (Alpine?) and those who try to place them on the sides.
Looks more out-washy but they're sacrificing diveplane span - whereas the Haas was aiming at maximizing that.
So it looks like Merc kept the inverted rear bottom wishbones, and angled the transmission arm a bit forward to move it away from the diffuser's top
