    hard to tell from the pics but it looks a bit like the old Japanese silver plastic cased stereos from 20 years ago with all the creases and little bits sticking out.....does look smart though. All they need now is to make one that doesn't break down every race, get some drivers who can last the distance and get a strategist to plan their race tactics and pit stops and they might compete.
    I might act like an idiot, and I might look like an idiot, but don't let that fool you: I really AM an idiot!

    My comments:
    *Interesting that the mercedes seems to have a significantly smaller vertical wing behind the air intake.
    *Plus that little horizontal wing in addition, as pointed out.
    *Overall, i think the mercedes stands out in the eye ball test.
    *Red Ferraris... i get that is the company's trademark, but i am SO OVER red ferraris! besides which, it really limits the aesthetic options.

    there is some video in this story here:
    http://www.skysports.com/f1/news/124...-start-to-2017

    *just as an aside, and this is just me never having noticed, but it struck me how they lift the front of the car with those manual lever type jacks, and all it is lifting is one small patch of the front wing. just goes to emphasise how strong are the composite bodies.

    The vertical fin (shark fin) behind the airbox, helps to control the airflow over the rear wind, particularly when turning, thus increasing downforce.

    The red makes the Ferraris faster
