Important opportunity for FI to show off how far they have developed their 2019 car, to attract potential buyers.

Like the look of the '19 front wing. Simple yet stylish.

Considering their financial issues, how did FI manage get the paper mache strong enough to get the wing to pass the crash test?

Didn't know flour & water glue was that strong.

Those FI guys really do know how to stretch a dollar.

Interesting - it's not nearly as simple as I was expecting, given all the talk. Makes me wonder if it will actually do what's intended...

I was thinking the same, mental picture I had was the wings of old just flat straight across with a slight rake. This still has deflectors so not sure if it will have the desired effect to increase overtaking

Looks plain enough for F1.

F1 is never going to use flat plane wings.

It still looks so much simpler than the current ones though

IMPO this will go the exact same way it did in 2009. Anyone remember how "SIMPLE" those were supposed to be according to technical regs,
and actually were initially???!?!?

Somehow the teams began circumventing that rule, and little by little little additions were added incrementally, and it seems the old geezers
in the FIA never took notice of the evolution because no one ever called the overtly intricate wings into question in regards to the rules.
