    interesting back end there. should help protect cars from riding up and taking to flight... so to speak. nice safety thought but, like most things will take some getting used to seeing. hey... it could even help lower spray so they could race in the rain! :)

    Yeah, i pretty much like every bit of the new car except the rear. The road car looks better than the oval car but I like the oval car's nose a lot better lol. Either way, atleast it's something new and not a GP2 clone

    Again, i'd rather have these cars than a soul-less GP2 clone looking car. And as Keith has said, if it does help with the spray.... OVAL RACE IN THE RAIN FTW!!!

    I think they made that back, specially at the oval one, to prevent the "wheel-to-wheel" accidents where a car takes off, kind of Webber at Valencia last year.

    I like the road course car more, don't really worried about the aero package as in 2013 there will be like 6 different ones, so the cars will look different, this is the Dallara's one to be used only (unless a team keeps it) in 2012.

    I must say it does look very weird. Very futuristic.

    It is one of those cars that makes you go "huh" at first glimpse
    but keep looking at it, it does grow on you (or at least on me as I'm finding it slowly but surely a nice looking ride)
