I might be going blind but I don't see any difference of last year's car. Exempt for the mirrors.

Hindsight: definitely going blind #-o

Nose looks a little flatter with less rounding at the tip

Aha! cascade of winglets for a mirror support, like AT/Merc last season. Alpine also running this on 2023 car

Louvres also don't sweep continuously across the bathtub. Two groups of louvres now

So, this is the car that was supposed to be an upgrade in 2022, but budget etc etc etc etc.

I cannot believe that this is the 2023 car! I mean, it's almost the same as the 2022 car!

Brightened image & can see some front wing attachment detail. Wonder if these will get past a Mercedes complaint :? :lol: :lol:

Exactly what Merc tried to bring at Mexico/COTA last year and were protested (against spirit of anti-outwashing rules etc)

Image

Same detail on track.

Front wing overall more mid-loaded than last year. Looks similar to what Haas have done

Ha, rumours were almost completely bollocks :mrgreen:

I love that they've slightly tightened the sidepods in front and back and that's it. Looks like they have more room to tweak the sidepod bodywork over the season if needed. Keep the outwash, reduce the drag, keep the rear wing flow clean, good.

Front wing looks more loadad than last year, so that would mean more downforce. They are using rear wings from last year, that's a good thing to do
And they call it a stall. A STALL!

The France aggressive step that Haas have adopted for 2023 has mostly gone from the 2023 Ferrari
