The teardrop shaped side-pods on the MP4/6 flow so well with the rest of the car.
It was also the last MP4 to have the lower side chassis black from the front wing back to the sidepods.

The side-pods are way sexier on the 6, more rounded shapes as well....

Okay, combine the 2 and you have perfection.

^^^ That pic of the Williams cars is I'm guessing is their heritage facility where they work on their past cars.
Frank Williams son runs it.

I noticed last season that Frank hasn't been at the races, or has been much less visible. Claire is the only one you see in the Williams garage/pit. Haven't seen any news about it.

Amazing video.

Giant steering wheel
No roll bar
Tiny squealing tires
Slidding out of the corners
Race track falling apart
Real racing curbs in the corners

In some ways, for the modern day equivalent, it's more like a rally car than an F1 car.

I'd bet my last dollar Rich Energy don't contribute proportionately the same as John Player did to their respective teams' budgets.

The Footwork & camo RBR are the best of the 10, IMO.

Listening to this now, really good so far.
Highly recommended if you're a Prost fan.
