It'll be the last of the wide front wings, tall rear wings.  I remember how bad they used to look but I've grown accustomed to the look over the years.

Man, new Renault looks hot!  Any one have some press photos?  Fancing that as a new wallpaper.

Best looking car of the generation.  We can only hope they don't fuck the livery up after testing.

Goddamn.  MB's powerplant was making over 900hp last year...that's power that hasn't been seen since the V10s.

And you know they're going to under-rate that number too...I think next year's motors will be right at 1000hp.  That's crazy talk...!  

We can bitch about the sound all we want (Me included), but those hp numbers are mind blowing - with a torque curve from the electric motor that is nearly 100% from idle.  I bet these things are tricky as hell to drive...

If we could only give them tires to match the power, reduce the wake effect to keep the cars close - we'd have a pretty fun series to watch.

Formula LHvNR with a bunch of back markers?  Pass.

 

Maybe Williams are getting 900hp but AMG sure as hell are not running the same spec as the rest of the teams they supply.

Still waiting to get the "car studio" photos... all the media photos I've seen so far are from the launch event...
