Wow I love the side pod opening, thank goodness they have kept the colour!!
Why the double entry holes in the front brake duct?
Just want to see it run. Booked tickets for a different GP again this year today.

My guess is for equal cooling. With the rotation of the rotor, heat resides the most at the point immediately after the calipers, so you want the most air focused there and the least air focused right at the lead edge of the caliper. That makes the cooling more equal over the entire rotor face.

Just had a look at the Lotus rendering...the twin nose are different lengths??? WTF??? Surely a rendering fault or couldn't they decide which chassis length they are going for?

As for the Ferarri...looks good from the front but OMG how funny and ugly from the side!! A broken Roman nose? a vacumn cleaner attachment nose?

I'm amazed Lotus could afford the computer to make the render...so your guess is as good as mine.

Hammer's got a point on the Ferrari. That thing looks like it could suck the chrome off a trailer hitch. LOL! But I will say that I like the new paint scheme on it. That's pretty damn sharp.

That's it. You're right. The black really does make it. I used to be just around the pipes but they've made it a lot bigger. I really like it a lot.

I'll wait until they host it someplace I don't have to sign up to to hear it. I get enough junk mail and adverts as it is.

I heard the Mercedes engine at the Mercedes site and was NOT impressed at all.

Going to sound like someone dropped a hornets nest when the lights go out this year. ****. This will probably be the first year I watch with the sound off and play some music.
