Hoi. I find your off-topic mass singular-brush tarring deeply offensive. I declare fatwa.

Never said anywhere that every new member is a Red Bull glory hunter. But to deny that many quite likely are is pure naivety. It always happens. There were lots of new members in 07/08 that were Lewis/Mclaren glory fans, for instance. I'm sure there were tons of Ferrari/Schumacher ones back in the early 2000's. I just thought it was downright laughable for a Red Bull fan to suggest that Ferrari and Mclaren fans are the worst glory hunters when we're in the midst of a surge of Red Bull glory hunters amidst their 3 year domination, ya know? If we were all glory hunters, we wouldn't be Ferrari and Mclaren fans right now, but Red Bull fans.

The car really looks very much like an evolution side-by-side:

However, in F1 small changes and a better flow around the sidepod and rear may be all that is needed.

I wouldn't be surprised to see a very large upgrade at race 5 after they learn more about the tyres during testing.

I just can't believe how RB consistently year after year shrink wrap the rear bodywork with the same cooling requirements. There is nearly nothing around the rear tyres/floor. McLaren and Ferrari (to a lesser extend) must be wondering how they do it, because in comparison, they can't get anywhere close to that. Ferrari have done better this season with a very low and clear rear but their sidepods can't match this.

@andae23 Best I could get for now. G4S nearly snatched my phone off me.

Bringing in thugs like that. Unbelievable.

Red Bull have two (to my limited knowledge) advantages in being able to do this, they don't need a fuel cell as large as either McLaren or Ferrari, and they package a lot of their KERS under the gearbox, not the fuel cell.

Plus smaller Kers in the first place, 40Kw instead of 60.
