  1. Clive has sold me on the BMW. The RBR would be the runner up.

  2. The RBR (and the TR by extension) has to be the ugly duckling of this years crop. Only due to the “kink” in the nose above the front wheels. Looks like the CAD engineer fell asleep at the mouse when creating those bumps. I’m sure it serves a vital aero function but it looks almost as bad Renaults ponderous nose.

    of course…ferrari is best looking

    The good:
    The Ferrari has great curves and a beautiful red colour. The Brawn looks very nice, and the Williams is mouth-wateringly beautiful. The Red Bull and Torro Rosso are lithe, lean and muscular. It’s gonna be hard to choose. :)

    And now, the bad:
    The Mclaren, I think, looks too lardy and blunt. The livery and Aero bits are nice, though. The Force India looks like a bland ’90s ripoff. The BMW looks like its designers were playing with Lego when they drew it up, and the Renault – need I say more? ;)

    After much debate with myself, I think I’ll have to choose the Brawn. I just scroll up to the picture and look at it. Even if it doesn’t win any races, it’s still perhaps the best looking car in the field. :D

    Its a close tie between the STR and RB5 for first and second

    The Williams did look class in its interim livery, now it looks boring.

    I’d give Ferrari and Brawn a tie at 3rd

    from the side they all look great, but then you see them head-on….ugh. The Ferrari looks the worst head-on.

    The best out of the pictures provided is the Ferrari but that is because its a dark photo, maybe all the races should be night races this year in a attempt to cover up the hideousness that is this years grid.

    McLaren Still The Best,
    Hamilton Still The Best,
    2009 Will be World Champion Again…

    i voted the RB5! has anyone seen how agressive those lines are up the nose? about halfway between the nose and cockpit! those 2 rises on either side remind me of shoulder blades on some sorta wild cat(cheetah maybe) that is about to attack… its my favourite part of any car! and lets face it! the redbull livery is always just so sexy!

  11. Ferrari could, again!, be a little cleaner and they’d be right up there, but McLaren have had the best looking car for 4 straight years. C’mon everybody(F1 teams) figure it out and what’s with Renault’s McDonalds paint scheme and F India’s Circus nightmare cars? Are they having a competition for the ugliest cars ever? They are both winning if thats the case.

    does anyone else think the renault looks like a boat? just a thought.

    you never know, it could fast in the wet haha!!

    BIG mclaren fan, have been for years. But i dont think im alone when i say that they will have the worst looking car on the grid in Melbourne, its rank!!!
    Both red bull’s look awesom!
    Brawn, Williams, Ferrari, BMW all looking good also.
    The renault looks like the first ever amfibius f1 car, maybe they’ve fond a loophole in the regulations which allows for short-cuts across water…lol…!

    Raikkonen has no chance to show up his skill!!
