    At last!
    We have cars that can be identified from their different shapes alone. Mind you, not entirely sure if that’s a good thing when I look at the Caterham.

      I feel much like that @timothykatz – great to see differences in approach, but not everything is pleasing to look at.

      Absolutely. I love this newfound variety.
      The cars WILL homogenize in design come March, and by the end of the year we’ll propably see only a couple variations.
      Next year, lets open up regulations on the airboxes & the sidepods, let them do whatever they want with them.

    I just think the Toro Rosso looks just hilarious =D. The nose of the Mercedes looks well, but imo bordering a bit with boring.

  3. Kimi got a car nose as a trophy to put it at the top of his car!

  4. Sauber is testing his car without the rectangular side flaps. It looks so strange in that way.

    what an ugly bunch, the ferrari livery is terrible!

      I swear the black underside just accentuates how contorted the nose is.

      The Red Bull looks surprisingly elegant to me though (although I’m still not a fan of the purple tinge or red endplates).

    Gotta say from those angles, the Sauber looks epic.

    Also, it looks incredibly long !

    What? No Lewis crashing his car? I figured half of the members here would love to see that.

    Toro Rosso’s the biggest of em all.. ;)

    So Lotus completed as many laps as McLaren and Marussia together. Great job :)

    The Red Bull looks almost too simple, I’m really curious if they will be as competitive as in the last 5 years.

    Aaaahahah, I’m crying! I’m literary crying with laughter! :)

    These cars are hilarious. Mercedes is the only one that doesn’t look ridiculous.
    Ferrari looks like someone broke its ugly snout, making it even uglier. Caterham looks like a tank with a dildo on its forehead, while Torro Rosso looks like a genuine reproductive organ. I mean that car seriously needs pants, it’s that hilarious! You can’t look at it and not see a **** all the time! XD

    I’m crying! XD

    I was really…well, disgusted by the Caterham at first. Clearly the worst looking car this year so far. But having looked at it again, they must be getting a lot of airflow underneath that car compared to nearly every other team. Leaves me wondering how beneficial that will be.

    Mercedes, Force India and Caterham have interesting front wings. Also interesting is the solutions some teams like Ferrari, Sauber, Force India, Caterham and Toro Rosso designed around the exhaust and the rear wing.

    And what’s that green thing, it looks like a turtle ‘s head coming out from it’s shell

  13. Was Vettel running light-rain tyres?

    Im expecting quite a lot of Freudian slips by the commentators this season

    This reminds me quite a lot of 2009 testing. There were many shapes and sizes. They were more aesthetically pleasing back then (I never thought I’d say that), but so far the only ones I find hideous are Toro Rosso and Caterham. Ferrari, Lotus, Force India and Williams go into my “they aren’t as bad as the stepped noses and I’m sure I’ll get used to them” category. Red Bull, Mercedes, and McLaren go into the good-looking category.
