Which team has the best-looking car of 2013?

Debates and polls

With any racing car, all that really matters is how fast it goes.

But that doesn’t mean they can’t also look good. And the introduction of ‘vanity’ panels to cover up the unsightly stepped noses which appeared on last year’s cars has produced some better looking racers this year.

But which is the best? Have a look at all eleven of the 2013 contenders below and pick you favourite.

  1. S-A-U-B-E-R-!

    Close call between Sauber and Caterham for me but I had to give it to the big Green Machine. I agree with the wishes of others, I wish I could vote for multiple cars. I’m supprised at the McLaren love as its looked the same for so many years its boring now, Red bull have just gone a step too far with the new purple and there is too much going on now. Torro Rosso are a close third place but not as good as Sauber or Caterham IMO

  3. It’s really tough to pick only one car.. I like every one of them except for the C32 (sorry, the livery looks horrible to me).
    I think I’m going to vote Force India, I’ve always loved their livery.

    The Williams front wing seems something taken out of an aliens movie. I loved it.

    Sauber, no contest. I can’t believe how well the Ferrari is doing. That thing is hideous!

    Toro Rosso gets my vote, i love that sharp elegant nose.

  7. Nomore said on 20th February 2013, 13:14

    Ferrari

    SFI, Toro Rosso and Marussia for me.

    The Marussia, Sauber, McLaren, Catherham and Force India all look amazing but in the end I had to go with the Marussia. Having hardly any downforce never looked quite so good! :p

    Lotus & Marussia equal good looking, closely followed by Ferrari

    Voted the Ferrari overall, but there’s something about the Toro Rosso’s nose this year that I love! Think it looks very attractive.

    I don’t understand who would vote for Marussia. That thing is simply hideous, especially its livery.

  13. The_Pretender (@the_pretender) said on 20th February 2013, 13:23

    Ferrari probably, not a huge fan of the tip of the nose but the rest is beautiful. Lotus is surely the worst, not sure how they made black and gold that ugly.

      I agree about the Lotus car, I love the colors but the placing of the sponsors makes it look cheap. :-/

  14. AndrewTanner (@andrewtanner) said on 20th February 2013, 13:25

    Best = Ferrari

    Worst = Caterham

  15. The question is rather which car is the least ugly. Since 2009 it’s been a disaster. 2007 and 2008 was great on the other hand.
