  1. All pretty. Pretty ugly that is.

    I vote Williams as the prettiest though.

  2. Williams, for sure. Although good to see gold making a come-back with Force India.

  3. Honda, all the way!

    j/k. I voted for Williams. :D

  4. The silver McLaren is the most beautiful race car ever!

    …and you just can’t go wrong with red,the Ferraris look fast even when stationary.

    Looks like most everyone else agrees judging by the votes!

  5. God, I’m sorry, I don’t know why, but I voted for Honda. Must be stress or something :-D

  6. wow… i didnt think anyone could out ugly the Renault livery… but wtf is honda thinking? what a total mess.

    I really like the new shape of the renault.. its nose and other bits are kind of cool. But the paint job is beyond hideous.

    I guess I am going to have to vote for Force India. I do like me some gold on the car… reminds me of the 60’s lotus….

    (ok. In reality the Ferrari is the best looking car on the grid. i just hate em to much to consider voting for them for anything.)

  7. i hate ferrari as well but i feel they will be the team to beat this yr!

  8. I would say Williams. I’m really liking the paint and the aero-package is nice.

    The Uglyest would be the Mcclaren. I don’t like the little rod under the air-intake and the long pointy thing at the top just looks weird.

  9. Two things come into play; livery and body designs. The body designs are similar if not identical but the Ferrari’s and McLarens seem to have mastered the blending of all the geegaws.

    As far as livery, the Toro Rosso has to be the best.

  10. As usual, the Ferrari – I’m attracted to most things red anyway, but I love their recent agressive looks as well as the return to a darker shade of red (unlike the Vodaphone plastered cars).

    My number 2 spot would have to be Renault – some may call it ugly but it’s just not boring like the rest of the grid.

  11. The Williams with the new aero package is by far best looking of the cars on the current grid. The most unique, and the most ground breaking. As to wether its fast or not, we’ll just have to wait and see, but it got my vote.

    Ferrari was a close second.

    Renault’s livery this year looks like utter crap. They should go back to the light blue national color scheme they ran in the past.

  12. Why did I say Williams?

    I’m an idiot.

    BMW is what I meant to say, and who I voted for. I always loved the devil horns on the airstack, and now adding another set makes their car look completely badass.

    *hides back in the shadows*

  13. I voted for Williams, I like the dark blue :-). But I would prefere them to race in all blue instead of more likely blue/white …

    Ferrari is a classic, McLaren and Force India are creative with the colors

    Can we vote for the worst ? Toyota, Toro Rosso, Renault in no particular order :-)

  14. Williams earns my vote- I think the two-color paint job looks very good. While i’m not a Ferrari fan by any stretch, the color scheme is a real classic, so I need to throw them some bonus points in this discussion

    Building on the issue presented by Milos on who is the worst, Honda’s paint job is absolutley HORRIBLE. I know Ross is new to the place, but either keep the eco-friendly livery on the whole car or get a real title sponsor. Toyota and Renault don’t look much better, but Honda takes the prize in this department.

  15. I love Ferrari, but you just can’t beat that blue and white on the Williams…

  16. It’s not that the Toyota livery is horrible, it’s that it’s been the same ever since they got into F1 – white with a red splash. BORING.

  17. 119 votes so far – none for Toyota. Ooof.

  18. yeah the Ferrari really is pretty, the Renault design is nice but the livery is hideous for real. The Williams I think is really good looking so it was between the Ferrari and that, so I voted the underdog :)

  19. The best looking car is debatable but the worst is certainly the Honda, and I’m not referring to paint work. The car design even looks worse than the very old ForceIndia.

  20. The Honda paint job is horrible, I can’t help it.
