  • They are alright. Not realyy like the thinner front tyre though. Some of the liveries are very unimaginative as well!

  • I really like them, they are much more streamlined and sleek without all those aero devices stuck on them.

  • Normally at the beginning of the season I dont like the cars that much but this year I think they look great. Don't know why, perhaps I'm getting old and anything that looks fast takes my fancy.  ;)

  • They all look great  :good: I think the extra length makes a difference to the proportions. We have become used to last years drastic shape changes and this year the cars look better in comparison.

    Mind you we have had a drought on F1 action, as no out of season running until now, so even muddy water will look good in a desert. :P

  • None of these cars have jumped out and said "Ugly!!!" or "Beautiful" yet, so I'll reserve judgement... ...probably until Bahrain.

  • Some ugly cars and some pretty. The longer wheel base looks great IMO.

    I reckon Ferrari and Williams look the best so far.

    You're clearly a man of impeccable taste  :good:  I think maybe both look nice as they are a bit less fussy than the others. 

    The cars are looking nicer in their natural inhabitat, running wild on the track though.  Much better than at the launches under false lighting.

  • I think they are mostly ugly, the Williams looks the best to me. The Ferrari (sorry David) I think is hideous.

  • The best looking is the Williams and the worst is Ferrarri.

    I do like the smaller front tire as it reminds me of the F1 cars of the 80's.

    Me too Willy,and the loss of the winglets and the longer
    smoother lines remind of the cars of the early 70's,just a bit

  • I do miss one thing about the winglets. Spotting the changes from race to race was like one of those old "Find the difference in the pictures" puzzles.  ;)
