Best looking car on the grid period!

 

No doubt.. It has been said the more beautiful cars are usually the faster cars and this is currently true to form.  I dont care to know how much money was spent on this car but when i saw the curves on the spa spec rear wing and the way they cleaned up the nose all i could do was mutter to myself daaaaaaaaayum  :love:

 

Hats off to Bell Costa Willis and all involved with this car. It is truly deserving of the three pointed Star and being called a Silver Arrow.

Why does Lewis have a camera pod the size of a brick ? :confused:

So, the updates are:

1) New nose

2) New quad element turning vanes under the front monocoque

3) New vanes on the front brake ducts

4) New continuous main bargeboard section

5) New/semi-new monkey seat (more of a low drag setup that an upgrade I think)

6) New rear wing

So the shoebox shape the car had wasn't optimal after all :)

I expect Williams to win Monza

 

I don't. It is highly unlikely.

 

actually we have to compromise more in our car for the top speed spec of Monza / Spa than Williams.... (they could probably run the car as it is for Spa),

 

There is way more room to tweak on the Merc than Williams in terms of drag, I agree. Except I wouldn't say it is a compromise.

hi Obi,

 

Just saw a pic elsewhere where the colour scheme was quite similar :p Look slightly to the right of wrecked Lotus in the pic. Sorry man... don't mean to rain on yer parade... but that's the first thing came to my head as i saw the pic below.0

By the way... so much so for unreliability... Mercedes is reportedly on 4th of most things, which is on cue. That is despite some awful failures, and considerably better than other cars.

 

Would someone be kind enough to pm me a link to exotic details about the W05, not the pics? :p
