Other than the thumb nose I think it's alright, the shark fin is less sculpted than Renault/Sauber but the livery disguises it well.

Also liking the return to a predominately red livery, I liked the white at first last year but it got old quick.

A whale tail wing on the shark fin.

Too bad new regs always seem to leave something open in order to add some ugliness. :)

I think the livery looks great, loving the white shark fin.

Any more rake on that car and you could reverse it (the back wheels, at least) over a speed bump :lol:

The intakes on the sidepods stand out compared to the other cars we've seen thus far. I hated the white on the livery last year but it actually works really well as the shark fin. The T wing is, I imagine, similar to how the Merc will look when they stick a more realistic shark fin on the car for testing. It's not the prettiest looking thing but that won't matter if it's fast, which I really hope it is for the sake of a competitive, entertaining season.

I can see an inlet for an S duct on the underside of the nose, but can't see the exit on the top. Where does it go?

Exit can be seen better on there, looks like it's just a conventional S-Duct.

fairly boring overall, the design doesn't look anywhere near as aggressive as the merc. The way the merc is ducting air down from the sidepods, looks like it is going to be unique among all the teams unless rbr figured that part out too.

Do ferrari have a windtunnel?

Just doesnt look as well engineered as the merc. which is what you would expect really. looks draggy to the naked eye. will have to wait to see them all on track but unless the engine is an absolute masterpiece i suspect they will be fighting for 3rd place again.

though i think the melbourne car may be a bit different.

I know they are all around the same spec, but it looks shorter and more upright. It also looks like it is a collection of parts compared to the look of the Merc.

That thing is not going to win races. But I'd happily be proven wrong.

I know it is not high on the list of design features, but it looks to be a *inaudible* for the driver to get in and out of. Nowhere to stand and lift the leg.

I guess I need to go back and look at the other new cars that even been released, but there sure seem to be a lot of little canards/strakes sticking out along the edge of the cockpit.

It looks better on the track at least.

The side pods look interesting.

I am not sure about the whale tail (on top of the shark fin...heh).

Sorry If its been discussed, but should we worry why Mercedes are the only team NOT to have a shark fin?

They have one to test apparently. So probably just launch without because it looks nicer!

Apparently they're undecided but will be trialling a shark fin during testing too.

Worth remembering they didn't run one in 2010 either so maybe it just doesn't suit their car design.

Sidepods are ugly, and, whilst not unique to Ferrari, having the rear wing so much lower than the shark fin is even uglier.

It is underwhelming in terms of its appearance isn't it? Doesn't look like they have abused the regulations as thoroughly as Mercedes (especially with regards to the floor and barge boards). If it's true what they say (that looks corolate with speed) this may be a difficult season for Ferrari.

The nose is terrible again. I'm intrigued by the winglet on the sharkfin. The Side air pods are very different looking. I'm glad the removed some of the white from last year.

Every rule has a specific space within & since the engineers are mostly competent enough to give competition to one another, You could fins similar designs or parts here or there.

Which engineer can interpret the rule the best or even find a loophole whilst being in the rule window, will earn the most accolades.

Yes, I agree, but this is a carbon copy stuff.
