    Thats right, almost everybody (not me) complains about the 2009 F1 cars look, lets see if one of them stands out of the others here at RaceDepartment.

    I feel the opposite actually. My favourite is the McLaren and if you compare with 08' I would say the new one looks much better. With all the "glued-on" bits and the large fin the old one looks ugly and agricultural.

    The new one has more continuity in the body line (especially in top-view). I also enjoy the passage between gearbox and rear wheels. On 08' this area was covered with ugly bolt-on wings.

    This is definitely the right way forward, but the front and rear wings spoil it a little. As Tony Southgate commented in Racecar engineering, there is no excuse for building an ugly racecar.

    Really look forward to start of 2009 season!

    I really agree, i do like more the 2009 cars. I started this poll beacause i heard so much negative impressions about their look. However i find them more "clean" and enjoyable to look at.

    Yeah. I think it should be more about optimizing the large surfaces than adding small bits to guide the air.

    The Red Bull is good looking as well. Love the rear pull-rod setup. Makes for a really low and narrow area around the gearbox. I think it could be one of the fastest if it works well. But the nose ruins it a little for me

    Where's the haters?:) Would like to hear from another point of view... I agree that the front and rear wings look bad:highfive: They look alot better on 2008 cars

    Very hard decision to make and I can't decide on one set team so I will go with 3!
    Mclaren, Red Bull & Renault

    Well, I am a Mclaren fan. But the Red Bull really stands out, so RB5 for now :)

    I think the Ferrari and Red Bull are probably the best looking of the cars so far.
