If you pause the video at 17sec, you get a bit of an idea of what it would look like if the nose was curved.
@matt oh, it’s beautiful!!
Sorry guys, I don’t have the tools or the skills to do it well, but you get the idea.
First one is with a straight edge, and second with curved.
(I have no idea how to upload them directly into the post sorry)
Best way to improve the Ferrari?
@kittyhawk629 that’s great! It makes me realise I hate it only because of the nose and not for all the rest!
Only 2 years at the most to enjoy these stepped noses, it all changes for 2014.
However it may even change for next year.
I say, just wait, the cars will improve over time.
If we start with plastic surgery, why stop at just one small bump?
A proper F1 car should wear its nose down.
I appologize for the lousy job, I had just a few minutes.
If somebody with Flicker account wants to reload the picture there so that it shows up here in the forum, I won’t mind at all :-).
@ph yours looks much like the F60 (which was definitely better than the F2012).
Wow, you just turned it into a really good looking car.
Has anyone seen this image showing that Mclaren have lower nose
Posted this to my twitter about an hour ago: “Image shows how McLaren actually have a LOWER nose than Ferrari, even with the ‘step ladder’ design ferrari have http://i.imgur.com/Aby4i.jpg ”
cant remember what website i got it from as my history is playing up but i was searching on google “ugly ferrari f1 2012″
I think I missed something, why exactly are teams making the “drop noses”? Is it a regulation change or is it for aero performance?
@sam3110 Thanks man, that’s all I needed to know!
Is someone able to do a side by side of each new car with their new nose? To get a bit of an idea of differences.
Also, I am surprised that there has been no article to compare the F2012 with last years car.
