        One of the best looking cars on the grid. I hope they can keep up with the people in front this year.

        +1 hopefully Michael got what he wanted out of the new development. He seemed pretty unhappy with last years car, even though Rosberg was doing exceptionally well with it.

        BEAST!!

        If you notice those wing-like structures attached to the front splitter, they are design to channel air into the ducts just above and behind them; at high speeds. I am sure a lot of CFD was performed on this design, Formula really do try to squeeze every available ounce of power out of these cars.
