    Thats a relief to hear, and I really hope I am wrong, as I read a few comments this morning alluding to them having been at Silverstone this week

        Obviously, at this stage, its only one persons idea of what the new gen F1 car might look like, so I expect the teams interpretations of the regulations to birth many different looking cars.

        The front wing looks pretty far out, both physically, and figuratively, but I like the one piece rear wing more than I thought I would, although its clear that this version doesnt include the adjustable chord for DRS, or the linkages required, that will need to be run in 2022.

        I wish the photos they released also showed an underside view, to try and highlight the workings of the underfloor, and a better view of how that feeds into the diffuser etc

        Its a little less futuristic than the original renders that came out in 2019, but I guess thats to be expected.

        Lets wait and see what the engineers come up with, to try and steal a march on the opposition

          If I'm honest I think the current Indycar (UAK18) looks better

          I think there Launch Livery is UGLY and doesn't help the car

              Looks great

              All the F1 nerds will hate it though because they all hate change...you know, the same people who hated the outgoing V6 cars when they were launched. Would only be happy if they announced that the 2022 cars would be MP4/4s and Tyrell 6 wheelers

                  Throw a BT46 into the mix and I’d get behind it

                      I know technology has to evolve and the current machines are an absolute marvel of engineering, but fuck that green pancake looks so cool. Flat, fast, simple(ish)

                          Roberto Moreno, fast becoming my favourite F1 driver.

                          Does anybody know why John Barnard was so keen to have him join Benetton after Alessandro Nannini's helicopter accident ?

                          It seems that Roberto got on very well with the engineers he dealt with, Ron Tauranac and Gary Anderson, but I see no particular affiliation between John Barnard and Roberto prior to Roberto joining Benetton. Having said that there must have been some connection, as Roberto was at Benetton helping John on the day of Alessandro's accident, where was this connection formed?

                            Listen to the Beyond the Grid, Roberto Moreno episode. It's in there.

                                Roberto really did deserve a top drive.
