I've got used to the stepped noses :p

The only thing I wonder is the regulations say you are allowed to fit a cover to hide the stepped nose. But that doesn't mean it'll happen... If it turns out that it's an aerodynamic advantage not to cover the stepped nose. Oops...

Oh, no, please, remove them! X))) The only cars I could stand this season were McLaren, Red Bull, Marussia and Lotus. Other cars were just... UGLY! :D

I'm hoping we'll get a couple of livery changes. I'm bored with Sauber and STR's livery. STR's has been the same since 2006 pretty much. At least Red Bull's looks cool.

Yeah, you're right there! I miss some radical change, I miss a yellow car, blue car, something that's original (Jordan, please come back)! :D

Red Bull is blue and yellow :lol:

Also, maybe it's just me but Mercedes, McLaren and Lotus all need a bit more colour :p

Red Bull is pretty, but dark, I want a car similar to Benetton or Jordan. :)
Lotus was classic, ok, Mercedes too, but they could play with the colors a bit. ;)

I think it'd be cool if teams did more one-off liveries, like what happens in MotoGP.

It looked quite cool at Silverstone.

BAR used to run some awesome test liveries.

Bright green could also be cool. :D

Just to add to the Vettel/Webber debate, one thing is that Webber is very good at the old school circuit. Mega at Monaco at Silverstone. He's good when there's close limits, but he falls back when there's acres of run-off.

Unfortunately, some people, naming them is not needed, keep being stubborn in their hate, it comes mostly from despair and the fact that they are sore losers, but that's life. There will always be someone who throws sh*t at everything that's not the way he/she wanted. But, those are just mostly ignored persons, there are better things to think about. For example, I can't wait to see the new, PRETTIER cars! :)



Thing is, Alonso lost. Thats it. Vettel won. Thats it. Day after flaggate life moves on. So im not sure why you think its sore loser. Just do better next year and hope to see vettel do something without the best car. Not his fault other teams are retards and his teammate is semi-useless. End of the day its scalextric cars going vroom round a track. one with the best car and best team wins 95% of the time and ta-da! Still funny seeing Vettel trying to get out of the fact everyone thinks 2nd and 4th place drivers were better than the winner.

Webber practically said his win in silverstone gave vettel the title in that autosport article. Hes right. but.then if he drove like that in 16 other races and for the past 2 years maybe he wouldnt be owned like a b***.

Not allowed to are they? Sponsorship rules and things. one off liveries now are a logo either end plate or sidepod.

Liveries are stale now. Ferraris is dull, RB is boring. mclarens suck. theyvall do.

I still say Renault was best in 05/06. Dragon, flower, tiger, sword, shark, pheonix and comet liveries. My shark, dragon and flower livery 1:18s always stand out in the cabinet.

But corporate markets and boring continuity make it a thing of the past. DCs wings for life was the last one off and that had to be agreed to by all teams. Shame he got took out lap 1 :(

I love Romain Grosjean, I think he'll be surprise of the year next year. Just like to call out my support now so I don't get accused of band-wagoning.

(I mean successful surprise)
