Beautiful!! The only major thing I’m not fond of are the still-large rear wheel covers. It is important for the visual of the car for the rear wheels to be visible from a frontal view. Other than that, it’s awesome.
Keith, how on earth did you obtain the pictures the moment they got out? I’ve been regularly (weekly or more often) googling any kind of news on that since the first ones appeared.
Anyways, EASILY, the best looking single-seater car out there, and much better looking than the current crop of F1 cars.
On a side note, a piece of trivia that those images evoke. For anybody who didn’t know Ferrari wanted to compete in IndyCar and designed an IndyFerrari – Ferrari 637 – back in 1986:

The Honda livery reminds me a bit of the BAR Honda with lucky strike I think it was.24th July 2017, 20:51 at 8:51 pm #346745

Definitely seems to have lost a lot of (visual at least) weight compared to the current car, although no doubt some of that is down to the speedway aero. Looks like a proper piece of kit.1st August 2017, 15:15 at 3:15 pm #347467
Today the road course configuration is being tested at Mid-Ohio, here’s how it looks:1st August 2017, 18:26 at 6:26 pm #347494bosyberParticipant
Those look good, though a bit old fashioned, having seen so much fine-combed F1 wings lately :)
Need not be a bad thing, but just something I noticed. Also, the wheelguards still look quite ‘heavy’/big in the back, even though it looks a lot better than what the current car has.
Looking forward to hear more about how they handle and see how they race.1st August 2017, 22:20 at 10:20 pm #347498VictorParticipant
In testing today, it was reported that they already lapped faster than the fastest lap of the race Sunday and that they did it on the slower “Black” tires.
