So far, none of the cars, including that of Aston Martin, Ferrari, McLaren, AlphaTauri, Williams, Red Bull, and Haas have looked akin.

What surprises could they have in store for us? We’d reckon a lot, as has been the case over the years. Now, with the regulation changes also coming in, the W13 is likely to look immensely stunning.

Only yesterday, Ferrari launched their potential title-contending beast F1-75 and the reactions have mostly been positive and much like the other teams, the Reds caught everyone’s attention with the bowl-like side pod design. Hence, with Mercedes, there could be an even more interesting layout to the W13.
