Would have liked more yellow but still cool livery, i suspect this car will change a lot through the year, in typical Enstone fashion.

Like it, the strong yellow line under the halo really underplays it.

Shame they don't use Jaune Sirius as the yellow...

Just a stripped down render. Need to wait until testing to see the actual car. 

 

Really nothing to see here...

It's alright. Weirdly to me it looks too black from some angles and too yellow from others.  :lol:  I'd say it's not the most inspired Renault livery I've ever seen, but it's still good, solid and coherent.
 
I think much like the Williams and the Haas, the use of black in the livery is to minimize the visual impact of the halo.

I dont like that 2010 yellow.

This is not an RS.17 but it looks like a 2017 car... did not evolve much.

Would prefer there to be a lot more yellow, if only to make it look more distinctive.

I like the car and the livery.

Bardgeboards really look like last year's ones but it's a presentation rendering... we have to wait and see the real car next week.

erm.... looks like last years car with a flip flop.

It seriously does. 

 

Incredibly underwhelming.  

 

It's almost so unbelievable, I'm thinking this cant actually be the new car.  It really does look like a render of last year's car with a couple 2018 bits like the halo and lack of shark fin.  

 

EDIT: Ok, top comparison actually shows significant gains in sidepod shrinkage.  Looks like new rear suspension also.

This is an RS.17.
3D renders showthe new car. Some studio pics use the 2017 car.

Don't care much for the big difference between the front and rear of the car, lookswise. Together with the very narrow rear it emphasises the ridiculous length of these cars.

It's interesting to see some of the difference compared to the Red Bull, given that they're using the same engine - and not without issues in 2017.

Hopefully this car goes well, as the driver pairing is quite an interesting one. :up:

I like the livery, but the new yellow they use is very ugly... It looks so cheap and chemical.

People seem to be mistaking side pods and side pod openings. This has a larger opening that the Red Bull, but smaller side pods overall due to the undercut which is weirdly missing from the Red Bull.

Looks like another year of all cars looking identical. The regs need loosening up, as Adrian Newey keeps saying.

They all look quite different to me so far, barge boards and sidepods especially.

Yeah, especially the Sauber. Totally different concept to anything else.

Impossible to say without getting similar photo angles from which to guesstimate volume, but this angle makes the RB sidepods appear truly tiny, like they moved everything sort of next to/immediately behind the driver ending up with a much much shorter sidepod

The Red Bull has an undercut(helped by having very high inlets), it just doesn't follow along the rest of the sidepod going back as they've shrunk the sidepod packaging as a whole to come much closer inwards at the top.  I dont know how, I'd love to see how they have their radiators located, but they've managed it.  Reminds me a lot of what they did with the RB7 in 2011:

Maybe it's the angles, but looks a lot shorter than last year's car, similarly to the Red Bull as well. Oh, to ignite the wheelbase wars.....

It may not have that much yellow, but it certainly looks smart and livery-wise is one of the nicer cars unveiled.  Car looks good, a bit less cluttered than some unveiled so far.

Reminds me too much of a fake Lotus. Looks good from the front where it has more yellow though.

the wheelbase seems to be identical to the RS17

The RB7 much surely be the height of packaging, look at how much bare floor there is!

Maybe someone from McLaren told them about going full papaya so Renault went with more black to avoid confusion   ;)

I hope it's just a simple 3D show car but like I said before, Enstone3D renders are pretty accurate eveery year and do represent the actual car well... so the Barcelona car will look very similar to this one IMO...
Unless Renault wants to hide some big innovations... Prost has indeed said after seeing it in the windtunnel few weeks ago, that the 2018 car is very elaborate...

I love the look of it.  If it goes as fast as it looks it'll be an improvement on last year.  Livery is awesome and quintessentially Renault.

Needs more yellow. They seem to be reducing the amount of yellow on the car in favour of black each year that by next season it'll probably be entirely black.

 

Can someone do a render of swapping the black for yellow (and vice versa) so we can see how that'd look instead?

I guess the livery is kind of cool anything I was going for all yellow.

Also, Renault should know their logo is more legible in white text on black rear wing, rather than black text on yellow rear wing... Yet somehow they don't know this!?

'Handsome' car. I love the design of the livery. Most will call it boring because more stuff fired all over a car = Better.

I hope McLaren do something this restrained as well.
