Reminds me of a John Deere lawn mower.

@ brombillaf1 “a good middle field car” It should read- car looks good in the middle of a field! lol.

Ignoring the nose (first of many). The side pods are much smaller and close to the red bull standard. I see they have abandoned the Blade roll hoop like Mercedes did last year and now have a circular intake like the new Ferrari is rumured to have aswell. This is an ugly car but to me looks to be another step up the grid performance level.

A nose worthy of Robert Kubica.

I think these are fake personally. They look computer generated and no – one would make such a hideous looking car surely!

So it appears that 2012 is set to see the ugliest cars in f1 history which to me is extremely sad. I understand that the cars are always designed within the limits of the formula but the imposition of the lowered nose for safety reasons seems to have generated a shape which does not reflect the laws of aerodynamics and therefore lacks the beauty that we associate with formula one cars. This looks low tech and agricultural. For all the their appendages at least the pre-09 cars looked cutting edge and in my opinion more pleasing than this. If the noses had to be lowered couldn’t they have been lowered to the ground as in the early 92 when as a 12 year old I was attracted to f1 partly by the beauty of the cars. Can f1 really afford to lose that element of its appeal?

Another illustration of the FIA not thinking through the results of a new regulation. Anyone hoping that this is going to be the odd one out will be disappointed, in the days of ” downforce is everything” the old adage of “If it looks right it is right” are long gone.

I didn’t think it was possible, but it could be the worst looking car I’ve seen in quite some time, and then even includes this abomination in 96 http://tinyurl.com/4q7rfts

The 96 Ferrari looks positively beautiful against this abomination

If it’s fast! Who cares… It’s built to do a job, not look pretty. Personally I really hope they’re up there with the midfield this year. They’re making all the right moves, unlike Marussia and HRT.

Maybe the only person on here speaking sense! The car is built to win, if that means it’s shaped like this then who cares! If you see it dicing with the midfield or higher the shape of its nose will not be the topic of conversation in the media for long! Hope it can perform! Caterham for the WIN!
