This is absolute jokes. Can't wait to see what Ferrari has under their sleeves... or.. trousers...

An article on Autosport explains why. Its a clever loophole in the rules. Don't think they'll get away with it, and if they do, it must have some sort of negative effect on aero. Surely turning right wouldn't feel the same as turning left...

Marca predicts that the new Ferrari F14 T will have a similar design to this concept.

Ferrari would look.. better than most with that nose. Still reckon the noses should be like 2009/2008.

My thought so far is the liveries. All four so far look fairly dark - are there going to be any bright ones? In the early 2000s each team had one colour - Jordan was yellow, Arrows was orange, Prost was blue, Jaguar was green. So simple and so elegant.

The McLaren is not bad but for an entire season I'm not sure that the livery is that amazing.

The Mclaren is ridiculously plain. If it wasnt for the fact Mercedes has the Petronas green, its identical in colour. Its silly really.

What McLaren livery? The way I see it they've forgotten to even do one! That car has no livery, y'know, the car costs so much to build as it is so why bother...

That Lotus nose just looks ridiculous. Hate it.

It's mainly down to the livery, but the McLaren just seems bland to me.

Merc released the video of the Mercedes on track. just a flyby at high speed, car is a blur but the noise is there. Sounds.... like a junior category;
