  1. wow the 2009 cars look absoultely terrible. Just, FUGLY!
    Abominations! God max, were you drinking when you dreamed up such eye sores? Leave the danm cars alone and let the constructors build the best danm car they could put on the track. Standard ecu, engines, dumbed down aero specs and all that nonsense.

  2. Yikes!!! *** is this ?!? it looks worse than the cars from the 70’s. After all the money and tech., this is all they came up with a car that looks like a pimped out Go-cart??

  3. it looks like its from the 1970s

  4. This is a very beautiful car. I wish I could drive it!

  5. I disagree. The wider front wing and taller back wing makes it look like a scorpion :P
