    No pics of the McLaren???

    • Slr (@slr) said on 8th February 2012, 15:38

      Everyone says that. It does say that more images will be added.

    • Mike (@mike) said on 8th February 2012, 15:40

      Yet, top of the article says

      “More images will be added here.”

      That force India really is a pretty car, I hope it’s quick too.
      Granted if it is they’d kick themselves for dropping Sutil.

      • Enigma (@enigma) said on 8th February 2012, 15:46

        Why? They chose the two drivers they thought were the best. Whether the car is fast or not won’t make them regret that decision.

        • Mike (@mike) said on 8th February 2012, 18:25

          I think, despite the potential of two of the (in my opinion) most talented rookies of the grid, they are, in the end rookies. So if the car is good this year, I think they will kick themselves because Sutil would (probably) I think have gotten even more out of it.

          I really like their line up though. Don’t get me wrong.

      The pictures are copyright of the teams so I doubt Keith can put any up until they’re released by the teams.

        mclaren have released no pictures of either today’s or yesterday’s testing on their media centre so until they do that, there wont be any pictures of the mclarens

          Fair enough, it is a shame though as I would love to see it in action as there isnt any live coverage of testing

    Caterham look nice without sponsor sticker.

  3. Ru.Bd said on 8th February 2012, 16:47

    There is no pic of Ferrari Either………..interesting its seems that these two teams r not providing any testing picture to media…………….guess why…..

    Nd RBR 8 is again fast. wow

  4. Daniel Thomas (@iamdanthomas) said on 8th February 2012, 16:50

    Does anyone know why we can see the driver’s face in some pictures?

    We’re used to it at evening/night races, but not during the day.

    Not complaining either way.

    Is it me or are HRT running Brawn’s 2009 colours? I guess this is just testing colours on the old car as their 2010 livery was actually pretty good, for a pretty rubbish team. Would like to see the Torro Rosso in the red bull light colours though.

    • Prisoner Monkeys (@prisoner-monkeys) said on 8th February 2012, 22:28

      Is it me or are HRT running Brawn’s 2009 colours?

      It’s just you. HRT are using a blank white interim testing livery. Brawn used white with yellow and black.

    • Disagree with that one. I reckon the STR scheme is currently the best in F1 – much better than RBR. The navy, dark red and gold work very well together and the pinstriping works for me. Plus I hate the silver/alloy wheel look in comparison to the dark rims usd my say McLaren and STR – the ‘black’ wheel/tyre combo looks awesome…

      • … how about I use “the dark rims used by say McLaren and STR…” instead. Oops

        • dodge5847 (@dodge5847) said on 8th February 2012, 23:37

          I know what you are saying but I havent had that wow factor since Caterham turned up as Lotus in 2010, I was really hoping for someone to have a big shake up this year with their livery.

  6. bananarama (@bananarama) said on 8th February 2012, 21:09

    I have to say it now: two days into testing and I am now 85% used to how this years cars look. Will probably never love them but what the heck, F1 cars will be F1 cars no matter what.

    • Enigma (@enigma) said on 8th February 2012, 21:14

      Same here. Apart from Williams and Ferrari the step doesn’t bother me, even looks good on some cars.

      • Fixy (@fixy) said on 9th February 2012, 15:52

        Williams and Ferrari look still weird, but I’m not afraid of them anymore when I see them!
        And the other ones are good.

    • JACoz (@jacoz) said on 8th February 2012, 23:58

      agree wholeheartedly,
      I felt the same after the narrow track cars, the narrow rear winged cars, etc. etc.
      You get used to the look pretty quickly, even though they aren’t pretty, they still look the business

  7. ivz (@ivz) said on 8th February 2012, 22:52

    Looking at the HRT makes you realise how stupid the 2012 cars look. I was getting used to the ugly noses until seeing the HRT photos :/

    • dennis (@dennis) said on 9th February 2012, 7:22

      @ivz
      I have to say now that the HRT was an attractive car, actually. It’s a shame they had to ruin it with their “CAN WE HAZ SPONSZORZ NAOW HURR DURR?” – livery.

  8. nemo87 (@nemo87) said on 8th February 2012, 23:09

    Ahhhh seeing that all white HRT with the hi-vis yellow paint on the T bar and low nose whizzing around the tracks.. kinda makes me wonder.. could this be another Brawn GP story..

    ..then I start laughing and crack open another beer :)

  9. MylesW (@mpw1985) said on 8th February 2012, 23:17

    Anyone else notice how McLaren lost their aigo sponsorship? That space on the chassis between the front wheels and cockpit seems so empty

  10. dennis (@dennis) said on 9th February 2012, 7:25

    Still don’t get why the Lotus is beige on black.
