Intro: McLaren 2010

Discussion in 'Formula 1' started by Chris Cronshaw, Jan 29, 2010.

  1. They can better call this year the Formula Limo Championship. Damn all the cars are crazy long and so ugly.


    Another pic.

  2. I like it (not love it) even though I support McLaren from some angles it looks ugly but from others it looks great, cant wait to see nexts weeks batch of cars.
     
  3. omg what a ugly car i just looked one sec on it and my eyes are still burning
     
  4. Would you rather a car wider than it is long? :) It's a necessity with the larger fuel tanks. I would choose lengthening the car over widening it, so that the centre of gravity doesn't transfer its weight as much under cornering.

    Personally I think the extended wheelbase makes the cars look nice. Very slender and well-proportioned...
     
  5. I think the new Williams looks stunning.
     
  6. I like them wide, like the 90's. :)
    If i see a F1 car i need to say yeah that is one badass car, especially for the fastest class in the world. :)
     
  7. I like the car, I have to say I have seen beter looking cars but I belive Mclaren have learned from there mistakes (last season)
     
  8. This picture should be banned (Bad for your eyes)

    Edit: i now think it's a grower

    Looks pretty cool to me. Nice slim nose and big rear part. (no Aponte, i am not meaning women)

    Lol Bram. :) The wide lens used on side shot i think make it look longer than it is.
     
  12. The design is cool, but it is the same year after year... I was expecting an orange one like the original Bruce McLaren one:

  13. Oh not that colour.
    The Silver, Red and black make a nice compination.

    I wish they would ban shark fins, really ruins the look of the car.
     
  15. i wonder when the first team will complain about the sharkfin is connected to the rearwing

    None, No one complained at Redbulls one on RB5.
     
  17. Looks like a freaking dragster!!! I would've rather have a wider car like in the early 90's, this one will probably do good in fast tracks like Monza, but I can't wait to see how it will handle in slow tracks like Monaco.

    I believe that F1 teams should always have the same colors no matter what sponsor, like football teams.
    Mercedes in sliver, Ferrari in red, Williams in blue, McLaren in red/white (think Marlboro era), Lotus in black/gold (like the JPS livery), etc... that would help a lot to build a fan base, to identify yourself with a team. I used to love McLaren until they went from the red/white Marlboro to the grey/black West livery, besides the fact that they now have Hamilton and I can't stand him :D

    Having said that, I would love to see Ferrari run a usual red #1 car, but a #2 in yellow :drool:
     
  18. I hate to say it, but that car does look nicer than the Ferraris :(

    One weird thing for next year. It will be hard to tell the difference between the Mercedes and McLaren..But we will get used to it.
     
  19. I wonder how that rear section will work at the end.
