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.

It's real, if you look at the airbox and sidepods it's exactly like the pics posted earlier in the thread

They've stuck with a more traditional center line cooling outlet at the rear, rather than make use of the cooling gills.

Other than the pull-rod front, this does appear to be fairly conservative on the face of it, but who knows if that's a bad thing?

No strakes under the car yet (?) At least not in the render, it's kinda blurry but the tunnels seem empty
