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 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.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!
