    These are superb angles of the cars Keith – a great way to really compare the sidepods.

  2. Really professional photos, Keith. You’re a dab hand at this. Well done!

    When will we start seeing photos of the new diffusers, particualy mclarens and ferraris

    Kudos on today’s photos – they look like they’re racing on an inclined oval.

    • Ned Flanders said on 13th February 2010, 11:27

      Yeah they do don’t they… it’s a nice illusion. The closest we’ll get to an F1 race on an oval for a while, I think!

    • I really like the angle, gives you a good view of across the top of the car.

      Awesome photos all in all

  5. I actualy woudn’t mind 150 flat out laps around Indy to get an American GP back. It would be something differant for the average Brit motorsport fan with a lack of NASCAR coverage in the UK – although, hardly missing out on anything.

    This is fanatastic photography Keith! I’m loving the over head shots, keep it up!

    Nice photos keith.

    Any chance of the one where schumi went off

    Is it just me who noticed the redbull cars have there numbers starting at 5 and 6?? shouldnt they be 3 and 4??? can anyone clear that up?

    • DanThorn said on 13th February 2010, 14:12

      Jenson took the number 1 with him to McLaren, so they have 1 and 2. The rest is the ordered according to the constructors championship, so as champions Mercedes (Brawn) get 3 and 4, Red Bull as runners up get 5 and 6 etc…

      • A-Safieldin said on 13th February 2010, 14:17

        Oh i see… I thought it was like jenson is number 1 so he gives lewis number two and vettel is then 3 and he makes mark webber 4 but yea nvm thx

    I really hated the red and white of the Ferrari when the press pictures were first shown, and it’s long nose, but I really like the look of it on the track now.

    This year we really have something to look at, it looks like a parakeet show, really good color spectrum :) :)

    How do Marlboro get away with the barcode graphic? Surely the barcode has become just as much of a brand now as their old chevron style logo was. And they must still derive some benefit from it by backing Ferrari or they wouldn’t spend the money.

    • Aleksandar Serbia said on 13th February 2010, 16:11

      Yp its subliminal marketing, it should be banned but nobody will challenge Ferrari since they have a special status in f1, so says Bernie.

      • Scribe said on 13th February 2010, 16:16

        As a smoker, I have never felt inclinded to buy Malboro, not matter how often I see that sign.

        Weirldly, my brand was Malboro before I started seriously watching F1. Not very good subliminal marketing then.

      In watching a few minutes of the Daytona 500 yesterday I was thinking how Hypocritical it is to allow alcohol sponsors on race cars but not tobacco.

      With the seriousness of drinking and driving I think alcohol sponsors on cars racing nearly 200 mph is a lot worse than tobacco sponsorship. But thats the Feds for you.

  12. Great pictures Keith, what is the little snorkel type intake on top of nose of Hamiltons car for? i don’t see anything like it on anyone else’s car.

  13. Great pictures :) Hope you had an amazing time

  14. Yea Mon said on 13th February 2010, 18:26

    From the overhead views you can really see how long these cars are.

  15. verstappen said on 13th February 2010, 19:04

    as said before: awesome photo’s, awsome angle(s). It’s great to flip through these pictures and get a close look at the design differences.

    Speaking of which, Renault really has a different car! That inverse bottom-shape below the rear wing, is something else…
    I am so curious to the actual performances of these cars!!

  16. Livery seems to be a popular topic at the minute and I imagine of we had the forum then it would be fairly near the top. I think this year is better for liveries. Last year had more nice ones but a lot were just white which was pretty dull. The best from last year definately the R29 closely followed by the F60.
    This year I actually hate most of the liveries. I can’t stand the Renault, FI, Mclaren, Lotus, Mercedes or Williams but I adore the rest now. It’s more love/hate so although I dislike more I’m happy because it isn’t as boring as last year! If that made any sense…:P

    • Ned Flanders said on 13th February 2010, 21:13

      Most of new liveries this season are quite nice. Unlike a lot of people I like the Mercedes, even if it is a little dull, and I love the Renault simply because it is yellow. Virgin’s livery is smart, but it would be better if there was more black and less red

    • James_mc said on 13th February 2010, 22:46

      The Renault 09 livery was O.K. for me – too much white though. I’m glad that there’s much less white on show this season.

  17. Omar Roncal said on 13th February 2010, 20:59

    What is tahat “extra wing” on the top of some cars, such as ferrari and McLaren? Is it something just for the practices, or is it something they will use all year? Somebady who can explain it to me please (cars like Williams, Renault or Virgin don’t have it,

    • Ned Flanders said on 13th February 2010, 21:07

      No they only ever use it in pre season testing. I think it’s for measuring wind speed or something like that, just another way of testing how the aerodynamics are working

  18. m0tion said on 13th February 2010, 22:08

    The Sauber is the surprise for me. The pics showed differences out of the box and on the track the times have been good. I would count both drivers as being, at least 0.5 and maybe even 0.8 back at this stage.

    I noted Schumacher said teams could even be ballasting if they wanted to. Webber was saying too that RBR would not be going for times this test. So I do wonder about them, same on their less complex wing.

  19. Why Renault is so slow?

  20. wasiF1 said on 14th February 2010, 6:49

    Hi Keith

    Hope you had a wonderful time out there.Will you be staying in Jerez for 17-20 of Feb for the third test of the season?
