    the car looks like a plane ready to take off.. its seems to be squating on its mid section and facing upwards!!! this is dangerous!!

    I would imagine they’ll have some extra flashings on the car or something if the drivers helmets are so similar come round 1. Admittedly Hamiltons is a more orange shade of yellow, but still, its not an easy call.

    Fair play to them both for sticking with their traditions though.

    Somehow i Did not like the Livery of the car. Mercedes could have done a better job. The Petronas color is finding it difficult to blend in with the Silver color.
