McLaren way of tackling 2009 F1 aero regulations

McLaren fitted their car with the 2009 style front wing in Jerez today. I am not sure if it works better than the BMW Sauber snow plough but it definitelly has much more elegant look. Glimmer of hope that the 2009 cars may not be that ugly :-) .

    I saw yesterday a renewed front wing fitted on the Williams FW30b, it looked pretty nice with a wide and narrow nosecone, more than this one HEHEHE!

    By the way, Kazuki NaKajima spun the car into the gravel yesterday and Fernando Alonso seemed to have kicked some barrier today.

    It looks like Frank Gehry got involved in Formula 1.

    The new cars are stunningly ugly, though. So disproportionate!

    There’s hope for us yet.

    Actually the wing looks pretty good and I have a feeling that the BMW wing will evolve quite a bit as I cross my fingers. :)

    I’m sorry, but the combination of big front wing and small back wing looks horrible. Changing the front wing’s curves will not fix that. The cars are hideous, at least in pictures.

    Yes, that Frank Gehry. (I love Fred and Ginger, too! One of his best.) And I agree, the cars do look ugly. I think I’ll try and stare at the front of them, and ignore the totally-out-of-proportion (really oddly proportioned, as well) rear wing.

    Maybe the cars will be so fast that they will be a blur? Or maybe they will look better from the side.

    Or maybe they will be more competitve and make passing easier, so the racing will be so good we will forget about the ugly car.

    Although its going to take some getting used to looking at the much taller rear wings
