Insane car. What's more impressive imo is it broke the Spa lap record of last year's F1 car by 0.7s.

Wow.

This car is still mostly based on a chassis that was built from the ground up conforming to strict rules. I would love to see cars built from scratch to make the fastest laps. Time attack, but for the main manufacturers. Tire, suspension, component, tire manufacturers would keep pushing the innovation envelope, but I guess what is the incentive other than innovation for its own sake?

Crazy active aero and suspension, the best, lightest, most powerful engine and electric assist imaginable, purpose built chassis... every part of the vehicle at the pinnicle of technology. Could a human even drive them? What kind of forces would the drivers haveto endure?
