The cars look awful with the high rear wing,look a bit like the massive wings you saw in the late 1960's that looked like flying bedsteads.Hopefully on camera these wings don't look so bad or otherwise people like my sister who don't really watch F1 will ask why the cars are so high at the back.

Oh that doesn't look nice, but maybe that's because it's breaking with what has been done in the previous seasons.

You know, I'm actually, slowly (veeery, very slowly) getting used to it. I could see it looking quite good if the tyres are wider, and if the front wing is plain and basic. And the lack of bargeboards would probably improve things - it would make more of a visual connection between the wing and the tub..

we have some epic racing in GP2 and no car looks hideous like that!

The old GP2 cars looked quite nice, and had better racing. The new GP2 cars only looked stupid at Monza. But looks and overtaking can be mutual. I could see this car, with more 2009 spec things on it, looking quite good.

I can´t judge it yet. 'On the 2008 car the wing looks horrible, but the complete 2009 car has to be seen to judge it´s look.
We all thought "Oh my god these cars are gonna look horrendous" back in 97, when they announced grooved tires and tinier cars.

I have the feeling, 2009 cars might look a bit like a mixture of late 80´s F1 and today A1 GP.

Sure is ugly (the rear wing). But i hope they will compensate with the front wing's beauty some time soon ;-)
