    Wow !
    Nick Fry has just joined Ferrari and look how much faster they are already.
    If Lou diMonty just lets Fry do his work Fast Fred will be unbeatable

    1. HAHAHAHA, he just joined, you seriously think fry impacted on this?!

      1. Hahahaha. And it’s Pat Fry, not Nick Fry.

    2. man your statement is trully ridiculous look at the ferrari it hasnt have all the gadgets of the mclaren maclaren looks like an space machine fry isnt able to transform ferrari to transformers

    3. LOL!! Nick Fry!! I love it!

      well done!

  4. Jenson’s helmet looks different. What is the change???


      Yup, new skid lid, i dont like it, prefer the old one. It looks too 80’s

      1. I think i saw Vettel with a new helmet design as well. It has a light top instead of the dark top (top of a can) he had before.

  5. Excelent selection of pictures….

  6. Anybody else often feel when looking at these pictures that the resolution of the FOM video feed should really match this? :/

  7. heard Merc and Renault also have the red bull type exhusts, any pics of those?
    btw, a lil off topic but has a story where they say merc wants kubica in place of schumi next season, any of u guys ve any idea about tht?

  8. I am glad the Williams did their F-duct like that. It actually makes their livery look interesting.

    A little bit like McLaren did with the red flash making it look less massive at the top/back.
