Interesting nose!

The little "wheel cover winglets" over the front wheels also look new. Or did I miss them previously?

Looks like Red Bull are going into the Truffle hunting business :] :]

I like the little inlet detail below the red bull on the yellow part on the right hand side. Very small, almost missed it

It's been a while since I last saw a NACA-inlet on a F1 car. Well spotted!

I think Alex's comment about an interesting nose is quite an understatement. Adrian Newey and his people seem to have pulled out all the stops.

Interesting to see that, contrary to Ferrari, Red Bull put only Verstappen's number on the car.

Indeed some Mercedes fans were often fond of naming the new cars soon after 2014, like unleash the Kraken, maybe this car should be called the Alien? :)

I've said all along that they hole in the nose of the Red Bull is feeding an F-Duct of some sort and all these inlets further my belief in that.
Looks pretty interesting and quite intricate.
