The problem with circuit rollouts is that you don't get glamour shots, but "real" pictures. No straight side shots, no directly-head-on nose shots, that sort of thing. But it's not like we can't see what's what with what we've got, heavens no! Long sloping nose like the McLaren, I actually think it looks really good... until you to the front wing. Hide the children, Mable, this is gonna be bad!
Oh dear god. I hope this is all just a bad dream, that F1 is just trolling all of us. "It's all a joke, you all fell for it, here's what the cars will really look like!" Unfortunately, I know it isn't... the cars are going to actually look like this all season.
One interesting feature of the STR9 Durante is that it's the first of the cars to not have a center pillar supporting the rear wing. Instead, the endplates run all the way down to the floor and diffuser. The sidepods don't have the complex sculpted undercutting to them that the McLaren and Ferrari have, making it all look very "big shoulder"-y. Or at least as much as a F1 car can look brawny.
So tomorrow is going to be very busy indeed, as the first pre-season test in Jerez begins... expect there to be a LOT of new cars tomorrow! See ya then.

Red Bull and Toro Rosso are separate teams who belong to the same guy.
