    The Williams FW26 isn't ugly at all for me. It might have an unconventional front-wing design, but that doesn't make it ugly. Aesthetics is and will always be subjective.

    What is ugly is always a subjective thing! F.e. I think that Williams is ugly as well, but I loved the X-Wing Tyrell!:)

    I was actually looking for that one, for some reason i thought it was Honda that had that one, that is one ugly wing :)

    For the BMW, yea it´s hideous. Please don´t remind me of BMW in 2009, that was a hard year to swallow after such a succesful season in 08 :D

    An interesting note is that the endplates on the front wing is to celebrate the steel factories in Germany if i´m not mistaken, maybe someone else knows more about that then me.

    Yes I think it's actually that nose cone that makes it ugly:)

    That wasn´t what i ment even though i agree fully and now see what you mean :)

    I mean the endplates, far left and right of the front wing. This image should tell you what i mean ;)

    When that Williams FW26 came out i hoped that everyone would follow suit.. Just thinking about the whole field with those noses and some teams going for even meaner looks..

    Those elephant ears... almost too ugly to exist. The 2009 ban on those extra winglets was a good one.. or was it 2009? Yeah, it was (had to check..)

    I really dont think those 2004 and 2008 BMW are ugly.
    Must say the 2008 car is one of my favorite. It looks badass.
