    Well... there are a few doing some cobweb dusting before the barca test but really even the barca test won't be final cars.

    Given that they're new cars, and testing is so limited, I would assume that they'll prioritize testing various components over trying to keep things under wraps. So while there may be some changes from what they learn in testing, I'd expect them to be pretty complete cars at the time.

    There's two tests though so really not sure what they can do in terms of aero first test compared to set up on new suspensions and running in cars etc.

    I am waiting to see who's done what on the big tyres and suspension first test. Imo that's one thing that's going to separate the teams.

    Looks like Red Bull have their complete budget cap money from 2 sponsors!!!! Oracle plus Bybit are paying $150 million a year (5 year for Oracle, 3 for the other). So all they need now is drivers salary and 3 team members salary I think?

    I’ve got a super HD, 4K quality picture of the new Red Bull upcoming.

    Brace yourselves for the detail

    Honestly at first glance I thought Max was riding a javelin, not driving a car.

    It’s a bit pointy!! <laugh>

    There's a few shots out there now and they all have the same problem.... They were all taken on a potato.

    Did somebody time travel from the year 2000 with their first digital potato to take these?

    Looks like quite a pronounced side pod from what I can make out but maybe a short one?

    At first glance it's not radical front wing. 4 elements, starts low like merc them up and stays up a bit more than the merc but nothing "radical"

    Side pods are more interesting

    They must really think they're on to something with all the efforts to keep it under wraps.

    Or....they built a donkey...

    That photo has something under the side pod opening that looks like it's obscuring whatever is there.

    Is it me or does it feel like we’re getting this Red Bull launch in slow motion? <laugh>

    Mr Newey obviously has a trick or two up his sleeve.

    That said, I think there’s loads of detail to come on all cars and I doubt anyone has given away the most intricate detail- either through hiding or because the most important stuff sits under the surface
