    Thanks for posting all those photos, greg.

    To my naive eye, one thing that stands out is how much blunter the Ferrari nose is in profile when compared to every other car.

    Also, it looks like the McLaren has some kind of wing, underbody behind the front wheels, that no other car seems to have.

    Man, that Ferrari rear wing assemblage has more slats top and bottom than a kitchen mandoline.

    Caterham has a little "wing" in the exhaust ramp that may or may not be legal...
