In a quick walk around I see an F1 style nose which we can assume has a quick F1 style change. Review mirrors via Newman/Haas but they don't appear to be of any use to the driver in their current state. The rear wing appears small from the top view but we see the side vents aging via Newman/Haas. the tub is very tear drop in shape no extra features to the top side of the tub to add down force as we saw on the Lola and other open wheelers. The top view of the tub reminds me of old Swift. I think we'll see a lot of changes before the final version.

P.S. Not much room for advertising. Unless you do it right.

i'm far from knowledgeable in the aerodynamic field, but i thought the reason champ cars didn't adopt the f-1 style nose earlier had something to do with the underbody tray, which f-1's don't have, wouldn't it be reducing the negative lift 'suction' generated underneath?

from a styling point of view, f-1 fronts are ugly. big time.

shouldn't they be differentiating themselves from evil f-1, at least aesthetically?

is it just me or was the reynard 97I the best looking open-wheeler ever made?
