A glimpse at 2017: Manor's wind tunnel model. Looks pretty sexy.

It's not F1, but the first photos of the 812 Superfast were revealed today ahead of the Geneva Motor Show.

I don't think so. I think the TR "model" is just a "stand-in" for livery purposes. I do however, taking into account the pic of the Manor and pic of the SFH-17 using the "2016 livery" that they will use a "shark-fin" or "dolphin-fin" in the back....they seem consistent from a fin perspective if you look at both pics.

The new rear wings are 150 mm lower than last year.
Apparently, as a result, the vortices created by the front suspension now don't shoot through unterneath the rear wing any longer. The shark fins help maintaining consistency/reduce effect of vortices during cornering.

Cars running higher rake (RBR) should, naturally, be less affected. Mercedes running very low more so. Apparently for that reason RBR tried to get shark fins declared illegal. Didn't succeed.
