Aston Martin's launch photos cause intrigue with missing part

Aston Martin have presented their new F1 car to the world, but rendered images of the design appeared to be missing a key element...

Aston Martin became the third F1 team to launch their 2022 car on Thursday, presenting both digital images and a physical model. Following on from Haas, which only shared renders, and Red Bull, which unveiled a design that drew comparisons to F1's demo model, Aston Martin introduced their AMR22 as the first "real car" of the launch season. However, while the full launch went to plan, there appeared to be an issue with the digital imagery provided. Indeed, when zooming in on the renders, an important component is missing at the front-end of the car. While a push-rod suspension element is visible on the right-hand side of the images, the same part is nowhere to be seen on the left-hand side. It is unclear whether the team are trying to hide something ahead of pre-season testing, or if the omission was simply a photoshop mistake. Check out the images below for a direct comparison.
