    Interesting take on the screen. Much more pleasing to the eye than what we're seeing at the moment!

    Otherwise the car is a bit wacky and you never can predict what an f1 car will look like because of the rules in place at the time. Interesting article though.

    Yeah there's always an element of "what if" with these concepts.

    I never criticise too much as it probably took forever to create and draw and I admire their imagination.

    However as you point out it looks too much like a spaceship to have any realms in reality, even 30 years from now.

    You can more or less predict what an F1 car will look like as the rules dictate how they appear.

    However if you look at the rate of aero progress in the last ten years on LMP1 cars they look very different!:laugh:

    I don't see a reason why they should look like that.

    Well everything futuristic these days apparently is going to look like a stealth fighter, just like everything futuristic in the 60s looked like white plastic vacuum formed furniture.
