    The McLaren does definitely look better with the higher nose, in my opinion.

      I must be one of the few people who don’t like it. I don’t like the way it starts to sweep down but then levels out, giving it a funny uplift. I also don’t like how thin the front of the nose is now- it makes the whole bulkhead profile look weird.

      I do really like HRT’s updated livery though.

      I don’t like it. It’s a fat nose and gets very thin at the end…

      The other one was a lot more “balanced” in terms of looks, though this one is still better looking and the stepped noses!.

        Yeah, I don’t like how it gets so thin at the end either. Its not horrible, especially in comparison to the other noses out there, but it looked a lot better before.

    I do like the back of Petrov’s helmet. Haven’t noticed that design before, is it new?

    I see HRT have found a way of making a classy livery look goofy. The giant numbers might be better than “This Could Be YOU!”, but that doesn’t automatically make them good.

    Still, it should be pretty easy for everyone to see which HRT driver is involved in an incident now.

    I can’t get enough of how beautiful the Ferrari is…without the nose.
