I found this on that very thread on F1technical, and I think it actually looks pretty nifty! Well, it’s not bad considering I generally loathe the tall and skinny rear wings. But that may be simply the front wing balancing it out!
I think the current spec 09 front wing, 09 spec rear wing height, 08 spec rear wing width would look pretty good. I think I’ve got used to with width of the front wing, along with maybe the height of the rear. Looking at the older spec front wings, they look too short!
I disagree! I think the ’08 front wings look more in proportion. I’m as used to the current wing dimensions as I’ll ever be, but it still doesn’t look right. I wish all of the cars could look the same as they did in the early 2000s!
@damonsmedley I’m quite impressed by that Williams with the photoshopped rear wing. I wouldn’t mind if the cars looked like that. It looks *very* tidy indeed. Though I’d still want all the aero bits and bobs to be gone too.
I never had a problem with the 09 front wings on their own, largely because although the 08 wing might be better proportioned (regardless of the rear wing dimensions), I did not like them when they were raised in 05, and although I appreciate the aero in the curvyness they developed, I thought it made them look too ‘pinched’.
I hate the large Ferrari front wing supports. They’ve had them for a while, but painted red with such a bad AND stubby nose makes the whole thing look worse. The front of the Ferrari to me looks like some strange razor.
Force India is easily the best stepped nose. I don’t mind the Lotus too (although it looks beaky from some angles). Mercedes looks okay from profile, but is the worst of them all from towards the front.
