    Hah! Good thing they chose to go with YouTube this time, because last year their website crashed since so many people (including me) kept refreshing the page to see the reveal live :D

    There are rumors James Allison might leave Lotus for McLaren. Would be a tragedy for the team imo, the guy is brilliant.

    More pictures here:

    Looks like the old car but with a RB-ish exhaust ramp and tunnel. Also no sign of the "passive DRS" since even the air intakes on the engine cover are gone. And it seems we'll keep seeing the stepped noses - but then again, I suppose everyone is used to them by now anyway...

    No it's not. Just look at the exhausts compared to the ones they raced in Brazil - completely different.

    Developed or tested new parts, definately not the E21 though.

    There are even more changes than that (engine cover, sidepods, front wing, rear wing, etc.) so what makes you think it's the old car?

    Look at the openings for the sidepods, is that cooling machines or are my eyes playing tricks on me? :confused:
