Honda RA107

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.

yeah mirrors are in the normal place

and those 2 bumps on the top of the nose say to me that its a zero keel. the thing that worrys me is that Even toyota have managed to make the top of the nose flat where as honda have 2 lumps up there.

Can anybody make out what they have done with the front wing, cus its just a black blob to me. i Like the nose, looks Agressive. And they have finaly under cut there side pods.

Looks like loads of works been done on the flips up on the back 2, not very clear, i am sure we will see more when we get better pics.

A studio shot:

Unlike last year's car, the track rod is now integrated with the upper wishbone.
The shoulder wings are more integrated into the chassis.

it looks like the side pods really Fold back into the body. The Side pod things... Axes or what ever people have been calling them, are massive, They look like they have design the side pods around them.

I like the nose but the but the front wing looks like they have not done alot of work there.

How dare they paint the car black, you cant see anything clearly.

There are some hi-res pics on Honda F1's site, but as Principessa said, because the car is black you can't really see any of the detail. Having said that the back end looks very tight, looks like they've done a good job so far.

I suppose we'll all have to wait for the new livery to really see what the car looks like :)

Don't know if someone s already mentioned this but that rear wing...
seems very unusual to me, the lower plane is so small and it appears to be completely supported by those two Indy Car stalks, in fact does the whole of the back of the car not look very Indy to you?

It's the angle and the color... crank up your brightness, its basically last years rear wing but with slightly different spacers.

Wow Honda must have some serious problems with air management around the sidepods, look at the size of the sidepod vanes!! But this is probably because the RA07 has no bargeboards, unlike ferrari or Renault for example.

But look at the size of those sidepods! Wow. It'll either win races or break the car.
