Red Bull RB18

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.

Looks like a championship contender out of the box. Brilliant!

Yet another concept, im SO pleased that all the fears of similar looking cars have been put to shame

Let's hope it is not another MP4-18A

The car looks so more advanced than anything but perhaps Ferrari.

Will be interesting to see how it performs.

They've stacked two beam wings on top of eachother, rather than using a multi-element wing. Quite interesting and unique on the grid I think

The undercut of the sidepods looks more extreme than it is because of the "scoop" structure and also because they've applied a reflective coating on the underside of the sidepods which is reflecting the track.

The "icecream sandwich" arrangement of the tunnel strakes is an interesting interpretation, you can kind of see how that could be generating a vortex that runs down the side of the car.

Hiding the car this long seems to have back fired, it's now the car every photographer is trying to get pictures of!

Is the outer part of the floor connecting to the diffuser rather than just cut off

Is that sidepod scoop even legal? Does it fit inside the legality box?

For sure it looks really different than the others, and quite developed. Of course, which concept works best in the end, we will have to see - and there sure is a lot of anticipation for that.
Maybe it's going to pay off in terms of an exciting championship where multiple concepts battle for the win, or maybe we'll get a snoozer where one concept dominates... well, at least we will have all the fun finding out which team that is then, which with all these diverging concepts is really hard to predict now.
