Great pics, thanks for doing the work. Amazing how complex are the hubs.

The Ferrari exhaust is interesting. I suppose somewhere in there it points up, per the regs. Can't see it, though!

I think it can point "up" inside the body work, but when the gasses flow out, they want to hug the channel & they flow sort of down.. I saw a flow dynamic video on it, pretty cool. Hot gasses flowing like cascading water.

speaking of flow...

looks like Merc is staying with the same nose as Montreal (missing some of the elements).



Finally, speaking of Merc,

Ross Brawn confirms their DRS failure was a quick release hydraulic coupling that was fatigued & came undone.

It's interesting how all of the brake calipers seem to be oriented towards the underside of the rotors. Typical racing convention usually has them monted to the rear. I suppose this is simply to lower the CG.

That resembles the winglets which Ferrari added after the first race or two.
