    few of these are on my desktop background :)

  2. Can’t believe Sauber are sponsored by BK. Who doesn’t know about BK already and you can hardly even see the logo on track.

      More importantly for sponsorship association will my double whopper with cheese suddenly explode in a shower of carbon fibre when I bite into it.

        I could go on… so I will!…

        Will my meal run out of condiments long before I’m done with it?

        Will I need to change cups because it made my coke go flat …

        OK I’m done with the rubbish jokes now, promise.

      maybe mac donalds could sponsor hispania.
      promoting FAST food!

        Ouch Sato, just ouch!.

        That would be enough to give Bernie a Heart attack, “KFC, proud sponsors of the Monte Carlo GP.”

      lets hope doctors dont condone fast food sponsors aswell as tobacco ones! :)

      Best. Sponsorship. Ever.

    Do my eyes deceive me or have Hispania changed their livery already? It looks black now but it used to be grey?

    • Keith Collantine (@keithcollantine) said on 7th May 2010, 16:52

      They’ve got rid of the white bits and replaced them with more red. Don’t know if the shade of grey has changed though.

      • KlBD said on 7th May 2010, 20:35

        Have to say, this new F110 looks excellent! A red stripe does wonders on a racing car, apparently :D

    • BasCB said on 8th May 2010, 6:59

      I noticed the change as well. More red and the spanish flag looks better this way.

      makes the car look better immediately. I am curious, weather Klein can really help them get started with developing the car.

    Speaking of dodgy sponsorship, isn’t Button sponsored by Johnny Walker Whiskey?, that just screams “get drunk and race” to me.

    Also the Ferrari drivers outfits, sorry I don’t care what Luca says, his drivers look like walking ciggarette packets to me.

    can anyone take a guess at how ferrari’s f-duct works? seems like it’s just a simple tube…

  6. Daniel K. said on 7th May 2010, 17:09

    How about Barrichello, Keith?

    He was in the practice, but nobody said a single word about him. Neither a photograph…

  7. johnno said on 7th May 2010, 17:10

    the ferraris look just awful now, wish they would get rid of that white box or even stick a socking great white santander sign on the side, would look much better.

  8. Prateek said on 7th May 2010, 17:15

    Why does Kova’s Lotus look like it’s on fire? :O

  9. maciek said on 7th May 2010, 17:33

    The Mercedes looks a lot better to me all of a sudden, especially from the side-view. Sleeker.

  10. tomforpresident said on 7th May 2010, 17:52

    no shots of timo’s “limo”?

    (i may have double posted if so sorry)

  11. Chaz said on 7th May 2010, 18:14

    Great pictures. Adrian Newey continues to surprise and delight with his innovations…

  12. meszkov said on 7th May 2010, 18:21

    more kubica pics please :)

  13. Super photo of Kova on the Lotus, with the post-combustion fire ! Superb $$$

  14. are that unicef stickers on alonso’s arms new?

  15. Ratboy said on 7th May 2010, 21:58
