Does not work well with some of the pit jacks, Jenson came in and his crew member decided to knock it off.

Maybe he was going to take it home as a gift to his wife? It did not seem to hurt his lap times much.

Like the look on a lot of the cars. Nice to see more difference.

The sound will take some getting used to.

Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo has lost his second-place finish in Sunday's Australian Grand Prix after stewards decided his car had run with too high a fuel flow rate during the race. The team are to appeal the decision.

Too much fuel flow. NASCAR should take notice: when you fail inspection and the car is deemed illegal, it should be disqualified.

And I'm partial to the Merc nose.

It seems the FIA mandated flow sensors were crapping out on everybody. Who knows.

The Lotus split nose was a strange one, was the change in the front end of the cars due to the lack of power and they needed help with more downforce? Or less? It sorta sees counter productive just one the surface.

It was a "safety feature" to prevent t-bone-type accidents.
