    Oh god, I love these pictures taken during testing. They have something that the others don’t have during the season. Bar Monaco.

  4. No pictures of Mercedes?Is there a reason for that or just a coincidence?

    Can anybody explain the Ferrari exhaust orientation for me? It looks like it points downward toward the floor quite sharply, which is illegal under the new technical regs, at least as I understood it.

    Is it actually legal to have the exhaust pointing downwards? Or is it simply an optical illusion created by the bodywork, and the exhaust exits arent really pointing down?

      Actually ferrari’s exhaust is not downward rather pointing in a upward direction, but what they do is they put it in a manner that it looks like it is pointing downward…….. and they circumvent that exhaust by their body work….. :-D

    I like the McLaren, but it would be massively improved by having a sponsor on the side of the bulkhead- it doesn’t look great as a large slab of chrome.

    McLaren’s car looks amazing. Can’t wait for this season to get under way!

    That McLaren looks UGLY from the side profile!!! Best looking front on though. But the Ferrari from the side looks awesome especially at the rear with those exhausts. My prediction will be RedBull then McLaren followed by a struggling Ferrari at first which will improve after the first few races and be challenging for the championship by the end.

    Actually the Williams side profile looks good too. Very 1997 minus the gold.

    I’m impressed by Vettel.

    He’s managed to keep his helmet from a previous event for a change!
