    Words cannot express how much better this looks compared to the W01.

    Um.. it looks like a duck. I don’t like ducks. Hope Renault will eat this duck (with some apples).

    Fantastic looking car!

    Really hope it does much better this season for them. Will be great to see either of them on the podium.

  6. Wow, looking at the nose – the camera mounts almost look like they are acting as another plane; is there any aero benefit to be gained from doing this?

    I don’t know why they don’t use shark fin. All the other teams use shark fin.

  10. Wow, best looking car until now for me.

    An utterly beautiful car. All of this year’s cars, with exception of the Force India, have been stunning, but this is the best. Possibly the prettiest F1 car of the last 10 or so years. And if it’s quick, which I PRAY it is, it’ll be fastest in Rosberg’s hand. He’s another bloody good driver that never got a good car, but Schumi’s lost it, but may pick up up his first podium of his return.

    What do you reckon is the prettiest F1 car of recent times?

    That’s a pretty car, just hope it is fast. Not too bothered by the livery.
