    God they are ugly looking things!!

    This is what Gary Anderson had to say:

    "Anderson, the former technical director of the Jordan, Stewart and Jaguar teams, said: "When I saw a 2012 F1 chassis for the first time a couple of months ago, I thought: 'Oh God, I hope they're not all going to look like that!' But it looks like they are. "

    Regulation for 2012 says that the nose can't be higher then a fixed height (for safety reason, crash and bla bla bla)...teams leave the chassis as higer as possible to carry more air possible to the rear diffuser, and then just the nose go down to the regulation height!!! So, yes, all the cars will looks like that more or less!!! Stefano Domenicali also said that the new Ferrari will be a bit ugly!

    The front is really orrible! The rear part of the car looks really nice...where is the gearbox? Maybe they forgot to fit it into the car (oooppppssss!!!)....the car, there, is very narrow! And I cannot understand the reason why they put a pull rod at the front...we will see!

    Front part of the force india is really nice to see! Mclaren is the more standard one...just curious to see the Mercedes, but we have to wait until 22nd of Febrary...

    Following all the new 2012 F1 car lunch, I go back driving the KS2 (at Barcellona) after months of Ftarget and other car...and that was completly fun, I didn't remeber that it was so nice to drive...

    So, why don't we organize a special event with KS2 on a typical F1 test track (Barcelona or Valencia), just to stay close to F1 testing? There should be enough "time room" before the releasing of the new Lambo, isn't it?

    Thanks, see you on track!

    At McLaren, they missed the main FIA regulation 2012: the car must be ugly in order to compete.








    About our next special events... let's see how it goes in the next days.

    At redbull they've put quite a lot of effort to mask the ugliness of their new car. Their secret? no light on the presentation event:



    or shots from the the ground




    I've to say, still not as ugly as the ferrari

    I hope Mclaren win .. That car deserves it ... if Karma exists Mclaren will be constructors champ. Still think Vettel will win but hope he doesn't. I think if the Mclaren races as good as it looks in a season of ugly ducklings , it can be the swan Wink

    I think the stepdown noses are horrible .. Ferrari included .. admittedly love the new Ferrari front wing.. amazing looking. I would like a combo of Mclaren body and Ferrari front wing. Watch red bull copy Razz

    though that Mclaren front wing looks amazing. ^^
