And that picture is not even the worst comparison. If you compare the F2004 and the SF90H from 2019, the SF90H sports a lengthy 5,712m (224,9"). The F2004 was a mere 4,545m (178,9"). That is almost a full 1,2m (47") longer.

After Saturday's mini-F1 Formula Student mod race this thing looks a 53 foot long trailer.

How can this limo be modified to take the Monaco hairpin and chicane? This thing exceeds Monaco wheelbase track limits.

To me it looks bulky. The way the livery goes down the engine cover compared to the sidepod makes it look pregnant. The new floor looks good. I wasn't a fan of all the little winglets and slots the teams were coming with on it. Nice Mercedes nose cone haha. I love the stripes on the engine cover but the coke logo is way too big and the Richard Mille is strangely placed to me. It really looks like a fat porpoise. I hope it drives ok. that's the main thing.

A god damn school bus. When will they start saving on space, not cubic capacity?

While I agree that today's cars are much too long, let's not forget that the 1970 car was, in reality, a deathtrap on four wheels, with no consideration for the driver's safety. In terms of looks alone, the 1991 car is by far the best. It would be nice if driver safety could be possible with a much shorter car, because right now, they are simply much too long.

I hate to be the one who does this, but I have a juvenile sense of humour and can't help myself...

That's what she said
That sort of reminds me of the "Celebrity Jeopardy/Sean Connery" sketches on Saturday Night Live! :roflmao: :roflmao:

While watching the live Mclaren launch, the FexEx person delivered by new Fanatec Mclaren GT3 wheel (within 5 minutes of the start) so I was able to open the box while watching the event. Amazing coincidence actually.
Let us know how you like it, I'm thinking of getting one.

The most beautiful McLaren cars were in silver, a Mercedes engine and the title sponsor of Vodafone!

The Red Bull is one of the shorter designs. But all F1 cars are extremely long nowadays.
Making them less and less suitable for oldstyle narrow tracks with a lot of short turns.

5/10. Not ugly, but kinda dull. But hopefully fast.
I hope they win a race this year.

Launch season used to be exciting, but it's just generally dull these days. There's so little left field innovation these days.
