At casual glance, it looks pretty much like last year's car, but let's take a comparative glance at the 2009 F60, shall we?
The first thing that leaps out you is the sidepods. On the F60, they go straight across the top, but the F10 is curved, bulging at the outsides. The nose wing is subtly different as well. The middle element on the new car, where the Santander logo picture is located, just stops when it reaches the inner limit. On the F60, they slope down to the limit point. The air intake has changed, with a more squashed appearance in comparison to the 2009 car. Other changes are visible on the rear wing and where the sidepods meet the monocoque; look at the Ferrari logo and you'll see what I mean.
I like the way the airbox is rounded, but the shark's-fin is like a knife's edge sticking out of it. Neat look there. Sharper eyes than mine may notice that the front tires are narrower than the rears. That, too, is a rule change, instituted to balance out the grip levels between fore and aft. The teams actually requested that, and the FIA agreed to it.
Now, of course, we just need to find out if it'll GO or not.
So the only reason to go into the pits this year is for new tires?
I don't know if I like that. Pitstop strategy for fuel (2 or 3 times?) was part of the game, and a way that the team managers to be involved.

Pete, I'll see what I can find.
