The answer turned out to be "not very." It's essentially an updated STR4, which was the safe way to go for a relatively small team with an all-new design staff.
From the cockpit back, there's been little change to the car from last year. Reportedly, it's using the same diffuser as the one the Red Bull RB5 was using at the end of last season. The front of the car is slightly different, with a sharper nose.
I'm assuming that there'll be new changes introduced as testing goes on, so expect the STR5 to be somewhat different by the first race. Still, even if it just completely rips off last year's RB5, that was a pretty good car and the rules haven't changed THAT much. Consider this one as a work in progress.
And hey, gotta love the flames on the nose.

Hmmm... I agree the rear suspensenion does look like the same system used on the RB5 slightly different rear packaging though.
