Please get back on topic and shut the **** up about Raikkonnen for once...
Now Ferrari and McLaren, they say the same old bullshit year in year out about their new cars otherwise they'll lose their sponsors, but when Newey says the RB8 will amaze everyone, allegedly, that's something to stand up and take notice of. Visually there's nothing really radical about the Red Bull series of cars, the only things I can think of since the 2009 rule changes are the v-noses, super tight rear ends and reintroducing pull rods and blown diffusers. Also maybe their high rake and camber setup.
It's nothing too visually radical but all the teams have more or less followed all of these things or tried to as much as possible and if it wasn't for the double diffuser row of 2009 they have had the fastest car for three years. It'll be interesting to see what amazing things the RB8 will therefore have. Cut sidepods like the McLaren, Double floors like the Toro Rosso, blade roll hoops like Force India and Lotus, tiny gearbox like the Williams (incidentally I hope Williams keep this and improve on it for 2012). I wouldn't be surprised if more teams try out a Williams-like gearbox.
Funny how Ferrari aren't even in that list of innovation, they've still had the third fastest car of the season which is no bad thing, for such a bland uninnovative car it's still fast.
