Jerez, initial shakedown, February 2003.
Questions have been asked regarding the all encompassing function of the large intakes at the front of the nose.  The ducts serve to acts as primary cooling intake for the engine radiators, front brakes, as well as engine induction.
Note that the cooling intakes extend beyond the front fenders and are slightly curved in order to mask the mechanical components when viewed from the front (thus performing a rules compliance duty).
The deep rear wing endplates seen on the wind tunnel presentation model were not available for the Jerez test.  They will appear on the car at Sebring.
