I am definitely not renewing my F1TV subscription, current one will last till Apr. plenty time to figure it out. Hopefully initial few races will be competitive at the front.

Great to see the cars out in the flesh without photoshop!
Ominous signs from Red Bull
Speed & mileage.

First thing I noticed is that it has a vertical inlet. Mercedes must be crying.
This is a doctored image with a much wider vertical slit. Merc failed with the sidepod concept, the inlet did not have much to do with it.
Red Bull have still placed the sidepod in the conventional manner to use the coke bottle effect at the rear.

It is pretty normal for drivers to talk with other team principals in the paddock. TBH, Perez has nothing other than sponsorship to offer, and I don't see why Toto would want him other than to be a reserve driver.

They have added a horizontal inlet just above the vertical slit. They have also included a new inlet just above the Halo. All in all, RB taking a gamble which Mercedes couldn't utilise on.

I feel they are not connected. Mercedes failed in their sidepod (narrow) concept which is completely different to the Red Bull (wide).
The Halo inlet is a great design as it extends into another ridge with a waterfall (slope) over the rear diffuser.

All in all, genius technical leaps by Red Bull. Must be acknowledged, they are clearly leading the design and innovation space irrespective of budget (that has influenced success in the past).

Re: Formula 1 : 2024 Season

It is going to require something as monumentous like Schumacher crashing out and breaking his leg in Silverstone 1999 for Verstappen to not own this year's title. As much as I hate Max Mosely and Bernie Ecclestone, they knew how to change/add in new rules the moment they felt a team was too dominant. Until then, we are going to have more of the same dominance even next year.
