    1. Yeah, as long as you don’t see the front it looks quite good. The lotus is also quite nice but those ‘gold’ coloured lines seem a bit whitish, slightly beige…it looks odd. Last year it definitively had darker shinier gold lines..

    2. My previous post seems to have disappeared.. Just saying that for some reason I also like the Ferrari more than any other car so far! (no seriously) If anything it has character..

      And to expand for the rest of the cars, my opinion is that McLaren/Lotus/Mercedes look boring, Red Bull/Force India they just look right so second best after the Ferrari, Sauber is the ugly duckling, Williams/Torro Rosso/Caterham not so sure yet..

        1. This, and the item on the launch of the Marussia has also disappeared.
          Considering that in what he posts, Keith requests authorisation to use the pictures, is this a case of the teams black-flagging F1F in the back? Has the obviously sensitive RBR exhaust thread on the forum triggered a backlash?

      1. No, you’re not the only person finding them weird, however you might be the only person who has not read anything written within the last 3 months about the new regulations.

        1. bro, i know about regulations, but the design of the nose on most of the cars is really wierd, why isn’t the red bull and mclaren have this Platypus nose, it could have been done in a more appropriate way to make it look better on the eye, it hurts the eye seeing the ferrari like that…

        2. Nothing on an F1 car is to do with looks in anyway, shape, or form. (except livery)

          Teams designed the noses to best suit car performance, if it looks ugly, tough ****.

          Mclaren didnt run a nose like this because they run their bulkhead lower, therefore not needing to have the awkward step.

    1. i agree, the livery looks very nice , as for the others , seems all the same from last year. but to me, still the 1990-1995 was the best era of f1 liveries and overall design , all cars where exceptional in that concern, mclaren, benetton, williams renault, symtec ford.etc
