  1. Something about that Lotus reminds me of the 1997 cars… And I’m not complaining about that!

  2. Is it just my eyes or do Marussia Virgin have a larger intake on the left side pod than the right hand pod in that photo? Anyones guess why that would be unless they are evaluating one against the other with flow vis etc. Or is it just an optical illusion angle of photo etc?

    1. I think its the light playing tricks!

  3. If you catch it at the wrong angle, towards the front, the Mercedes is just hideous.

    1. Good Lord… that’s awful…

      1. I prefer the Ferrari nose! Finally!

    2. Maclaren is the best looking car from the front. Then maybe Force India…

    3. To be honest, having looked at many of the pictures of those cars, the noses really are ugly, only the McLaren looks nice seen from the front.

      1. Yes you are right… Maclaren is the best of the non stepped-nose cars… but among them I feel that FI is the best…

  4. complaining about lack of mclaren photos starts in 3…2…1 ! :D

    Jamey was a great choice Keith!!! Nice shots dude!

    1. +1, great photos

    2. I will +1 that as well, good shots

    3. Agreed, some of these are the best F1 photos I’ve seen for a while. LOVE the sunset Hulkenberg ones! Especially this one http://www.f1fanatic.co.uk/2012/02/21/2012-f1-testing-day-5-pictures/motor-racing-formula-one-world-championship-barcelona-f1-test-day-1-barcelona-spain-6/

      Is Jamey there all week? Please get some arty shots of Webber!!! PLEEEEEAAASSSEEEE!!! haha :)

  6. Finally a good shot from the rear of the redbull they kept hiding it on the presentation and testing and i’m afraid that they have done it again that exhasut position is perfect there no more room to exploit they made a great work again.

  7. Bless Kubica’s fans, such a nice sentiment from them. I hope he’s at a race this year. Chequered flag in Melbourne please, Robert!

    1. Just thinking, can’t he be a driver’s steward at a race?

  8. That 2nd pic of Lewis has desktop background written all over it!! :D

    1. Cannot agree more with you… Fantastic pic…!!

  9. That Ferrari really does look crazy. It looks much better on track too, I would say.

    Is it just me, or is the blue of the Red Bull darker this year? And it’s rear is scarily tight from some angles…
