Great to see A LOT of people are changing their opinion about our new livery! There are phrases like "brilliant in daylight", "stunning" etc
No kidding.
Livery & premature denigrating of the initial renders.
I see more flip flops here than at the beach! LOL!

Welcome to the board friend, I guess you are Polish? smiling smiley

Not only him. winking smiley Hello all. I've written something here a few times, but I'm mainly watching you.
My conclusions after what I saw today are that the car looks promising. Front wing with air exhaust aside, completely new Mercedes-style front suspension. Unique mirrors, side sections with clearly larger air intakes !! It catches the eye, as if the diffuser had a lot of missing elements.
In general, it's better than everyone expected. It looks like a completely different car!

Well I guess we cant moan about locking up and sliding today if we are running with 30% of the diffuser grinning smiley

Anyone knows which parts are missing from the car?
Even if it was only a shakedown, drivers could compare but if the car misses some parts, then even 100laps mean nothing to them!

welcome to all Polish fans here. We will see how the story will unfold tomorrow. At least we have made it to the test which looked very difficult to make the cut.

OK, so after poring over some pics I can tell the differences from last year. Suspension, sidepods are the ones that stand out.

Having said that, there is a clear evolution of the inlets and the beam wings or whatever you call them. It's not that different from last year. The design there is a bit different from the other cars, which seal off the sidepod inlet from the wings at the top. We have a gap between the wing and the intake.

I don't read too much into it. It's different from last year but not much IMHO.

I also think the new livery makes it look more drastic. Slap on the martini stripes and we'd be singing a different tune. At least I think so.

So. Nice to meet the fw42. I hope it's a good one. Who knows.

Those sidepod inlets are ultra small, hope we got the cooling right this time
