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

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...

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. :)

The design is cool, but it is the same year after year... I was expecting an orange one like the original Bruce McLaren one:

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:

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.
