Kvyat: waste of a seat, there's no compelling reason why he's suddenly become a decent driver and sorted his head out after a year on the sidelines occasionally driving Ferrari's simulator. Can see him being slung out again. Talk about a glutton for punishment... 

 

 

I think it is pretty clear that they only hired Kvyat so they can fire him, when Max desperately needs a win.

McLaren has been up to something with the fishy nose it seems.

Yup. 

RBR and STR may as well have just gone for maximum transparency and release both cars in one fell swoop.

Very underwhelming.

 

I only expect disappointment at the launches.

 

That animation was very un-ominous.

Personally I expect different sidepods design or interal packaging from RB. Maybe bit more smoother cover instead having rough edges. But virtually everything else identical  given RBR and STR will have same engine, same suspension and gearbox I presume.

Ah, car reveal season. Lots of excitement, followed by an underwhelming "it looks no different to last year's/fan concepts looked miles better" reaction.

If not for the Red Bull logo, that would be quite an old school design. I like.

It will be interesting to see which team's design attracts the most arrows.

I am all for old school design, today's helmet designs are a mess.

Scarbs on the STR14: Look like high inlet style sidepods, deep undercut, small vane set up outboard and what looks like a bargeboard mounted vertical fin

Boring livery... all this single sponsor livery is soooo bland IMO. As for the car, front seems tidy but the rear end seems a big lots of junk in the trunk to me. Surprised at how flat and low rake it is as well.. curious now if RB will lose their rake design this season.

Actually, rethinking about I think more to do with 2 teams with same sponsor probably.. that think red line looks so odd under the drivers head .. seriously they couldn’t put a sponsor their or a nicer design then a big thick red line that continues from the rear body work design..

Totally getting boring and dull that they just keep hammering out the same thing year after year.

I mean why? Really why? Is he bringing russian money? You telling me you let Hartly go and/or not even think about  Ericsson but allow this crash test dummy back int to it?

So where are the front wing brackets? These computer renders are so fake.

I love the way the sidepod top surface rolls over to direct airflow under the Coke bottle shape, very Newey-esque , pushing more air pressure over the diffuser

Wasn't expecting any change in livery given how nice it looked when it first came out. Guess they didn't want to change a winning formula no matter how boring it gets later on. 

 

That sidepod, wow. Red Bull esque.

It seems all cars are gonna have similar, and simple, front ings. This nereg might bunch up the field closer, on performance

FIA missed a trick by not limiting the number of elements as well.

You can tell they'll share a lot with RBR. Looks like a car designed by Newey.

It basically is - given how much they legally share

Since it’s said Red Bull is doing one at Silverstone, they might wait and get Toro Rosso to do a filming day between the tests IMO

Livery still looks good so why change it...

 

According to dr Marko they have used  last years RB14 chassis (as far as the rules allowed it ) for the STR14 so it would be good to see a comparison between these 2 cars (last years RB and this years STR)

Sidepods look great, a pitty the car has AGAIN this stupid piece in front of the nose. When will they close this loophole in the regulations?

Also, somehow this TR car looks HUGE in length.

It's not a loophole - it's the intent of the regulation, hence why almost all cars have that little thumb/nubbin.
