LMPs are pretty good looking machines these days. I know, I'm probably one of the few here who like the look of the fins, but still.

The Caterham is strange. The nose step is dictated by the new rules, as far as I read, which state different maximum height for the body around front axle. Looks simply hideous, but if it works, then who cares? After all, years later this car will be remembered, no matter that it will be 'Top 10 ugliest F1 cars ever' article.

Near the middle of the middle of middle England.
I think I need a sick bag, although with such a radical design it'll be interesting to see how it performs. (A'la walrus nose Williams FW26)

We'll find it out soon. February 1 marks a wave of presentations from top teams, starting with McLaren if I remember right.

Wow, it kind of reminds me of some 1970s f1 designs, weird. I guess it can work to increase the downforce right on top of the fron axle.

You know what tey say about ugly race cars.
