    1. Anyone else trying to play spot the difference between the two Ferrari wings?

      1. They’re identical.

        1. I know, I was kidding.

            No, they’re not.
            The flap behind the main plane on Alonso’s wing is shaped differently. Massa’s flap is more rounded. Check the Santander sign and it’s gap towards the end of the flaps to spot the difference.

            Massa’s main plane is also angled more extreme a the very edges before the endplates. Alonso’s is almost straight.

            The black bits underneath the endplates on Alonso’s car are more shaped like an “L” compared to Massa’s wing, which has the upside down “U.”

            It’s hard to tell from that image, but the opening in Alonso’s endplates, I think. But I’m not sure on that.

            I’m sure there’s more.

            1. *EDIT:
              the opening on Alonso’s endplates is at a different position

        2. Actually they are different, (zoomed in closer) look and the very bottom main wing plane, the outer ends of Massa’s wing is more pronounced half circle shaped whereas Alonso’s one is flatter i.e. far lass pronounced. Other than this they are identical!

      2. The drivers look tiny near the front wings

    2. Interesting thing I did spot in that picture though given the history between the two team is the “McLaren/Ferrari” above the door on the left side of the picture.

      1. Haha, good spot!

    3. Caterham just isn’t the same without Tony Fernandes – and soon could be without Kovalainen…

    4. Looks like Vettel and Alonso haven’t changed their expressions since last weeks press conference.
