    you can say that again
    usually I'm not fan of driver's heads and faces because despite the efforts there is alway something kitsch and I prefer the visor without seeing too much, but here we have also light reflects inside the helmet and face in perspective. Nice !

    For me, it looks like a real Piquet in a real Brabham now, everything is perfect!

    Story regarding the nose oil cooler.....

    "In Canada, the Brabham team introduced a curious additional radiator on the nose that was mounted on the car that improved reliability. Piquet won the race (after having retired from the previous 6 races, mostly through engine or turbo failure), but the additional radiator heated to the point that Piquet suffered burns on his right foot when pushing the accelerator pedal down; The heat had actually burnt a hole through his boots and he went to the podium barefoot after receiving first aid."

    Canada...

    I want that the engine cover flys away when the car crash, because when not the engine makes no sense :D

    Some years back when living in Dallas we went to Fair Park as it was being prepped for a shifterkart race using the same layout. Those were just after winding down 5 years of SKUSA shifterkart racing with my son and I borrowed a kart to take a few laps. The track was almost too small for a shifterkart, let alone an F1 car.

    As for the new car, if its anything like your previous work I'll be buying y'all a few more cups of coffee when its released.
