It's not the nose, just look at the step on the other pictures.

Of course new car will have even smaller sidepods than the old car. For sure they will try vanity panel at the tests.

As usual with RedBull launches, nothing to see.
I'm heading back to the Mercedes launch thread :wave:

A bit early for this don't you think? It is certainly not the best looking car this year but maybe
it is the fastest. Time will tell.

I imagine most people are more concerned about performance on track that launch slickness. We'll see who's 'FAILED' in 6 weeks time.

This is a bit of a fail..where was the live stream! Fed up of these shite launches, McLaren seem to be the only team to get their online launch right this year

Erm, what. Lotus' one went as planned (regardless whether the car was just E20 or not), same for Sauber and Force India. Ferrari did their as well, even if stream quality was poor at times.

Colour is nice - different, shoulders on the front bulkhead is interesting as they could have gone for those last year to blend the step into the upper surface of the tub.

As always with a Red Bull car however, the thing we really want to see is the rear, and surprise - surprise - no images :)

People could even touch to Mp4-28, and make technical analysis on it as they want. Other teams should be more open to the fans. I don't like this restrictive attitude

They did the same last year, so no surprise.

But the car looks good, possibly my favourite step nose design so far. The livery looks good and I hope we can see more angles before Jerez.

How come they have kept the nose, but ditched the letterbox for now?

EDIT: McLaren exhausts on the RB9. I really think these will change for all teams, as I thought the RedBull solution was better?

Journos should just walk out in unison then. That would be great PR.

So much for Red Bull being the friendly, care free and open team they like to portray themselves as.

If your not going to allow any photos why bother sending out the invites in the first place?

Funny. McLaren and Red Bull. Who'd have thought that McLaren would be so open with their car. While Red Bull being so closed.

You'd expect it the other way around.

What is the point of a launch where the car is kept secret? Eh? It'll be on the track in two days. :confused:

But I don't remember them having an opening like that, or the bulge. I could be wrong though.

EDIT: My mistake, it looked like the McLaren one from one of the pics. It does however look like it has taken characteristics of both types.

Sensational idea, launch the car, don't provide any streaming coverage and don't let the journalists you've invited to publicise your car launch take any pictures. feckin genius Red Bull....
