Interestingly there are small intakes on the side of the nose by the front suspension.. wonder what they are for?

Air intake above drivers head is massive compared to RB8 as well.

I can' t wait to watch it' s moving- those amazing colours during very fast drive will certainly leave outstanding neon reflects for the rest of course : )

I kinda like the purple and it makes the livery stand out. for some reason, it's like they were advertising some kind of grape flavoured soft drink...maybe an idea there Dietrich.

Very narrow intakes on the sidepods like the Sauber except that Hinwill's rocket seems to have narrow sidepods too.

Concerning the remarks on the size of the front wings, I find it hideous too but it bugs me less than the ridiculous narrow and high rear wings...Some said we'd get used to this after 2009, but no, it still looks unbalanced and wrong for a proper race single seater, an F1 no less.

I'm ranting but I think they should narrow the front wings a bit which will let the side fences less exposed BTW. The rear wing ought to be widened, if they want to reduce a bit of efficiency they can raise the lower flap.

Anyway, I had the chance to contemplate Alguersuari's 2011 STR car in my local mall at a touching distance - well I touched it :p - and it really is impressive in real life. The front wing looks

Has to be the worst-looking car so far. Shame really. They were criticised for always looking the same, now they've made changes... for the worse.
