    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.

    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)

    @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).

    I think I missed something, why exactly are teams making the “drop noses”? Is it a regulation change or is it for aero performance?

    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.
