    I didn't think the current cars looked too bad but then I saw a video yesterday of the Ferrari 641...and then you realise just how achingly pretty those F1 cars were. Same for the '91 McLaren :inlove:

    So, I guess we need to add a poll about most unique car in last two decades.
    Scratch that original poll, it was boring anyway. :)
    Btw @ ears you would lose in that quiz, I'm pretty sure cuz there was some distinguish cars in these last 20 years or so.

    At least the shark fins and tv-arials should be deleted next year.
    They sucked, but the rest of the car looked good.

    What has happened with Toro Rosso ? Theyve gone from being a pretty decent midfield team in the first half of the season to being an absolute shambles . So have Renault pulled the plug on Toro Rosso's engine , or is it the current driver paring that just can't cut the mustard ? Because if they had performed as bad all season has they have in the last handful of races they'd have been lucky to beat Sauber in the championship nevermind hoping to finish 6th .

    What, even with the little spoiler on top of the shark fins? They look like wind up cars!

    I was speaking more about the overall package than just the looks. But I agree, they are sort of cute, and toy like (and break often). We all have bias re: looks...and I think next year's IndyCar will be the best "looking" car I have seen since 1979. But when you take the whole package of F1 2017 into account, blasting away records at every track, and the sheer cost to build, the technology, coupled with the drivers' reactions (and my reaction after I drove it in Assetto. WoW), then it's hard to compete with that car.
