The side pods look brilliant, I hope they aren't just funky and are actually beneficial. The car is quite impressive and different in some areas, like the airbox, but quite ordinary in others. Is the launch car just a snippet of what is to come, and the actual car has features that Mclaren-Mercedes-Benz don't want other teams to see?


Since when did Chrome and Flourescent Orange become classy?! Laughing

Oh no, the car itself I don't care about. I ignore that part and the livery, I concentrate on the Mercedes-Benz and Mobil 1 logo's.

You think they forgot the 2011 car and brought the 2010 car to the launch by mistake? Razz

I think Virgin did what Toro Rosso did, don't bother to show a new car, just show a 2010 car but with the latest sponsors. Mind you, Mclaren are guilty of that too. They admitted they didn't show the whole car to hide secrets, fair enough - but STR and Virgin don't have many secrets to hide - no offence!

The worst car on the grid last season, Now has the best looking car this season. (Will still be the slowest). If it stays looking like that.

I cannot be bothered uploading all the pics.

somebody should sponsor that, it's a great paint scheme at the very least, it's just a shame that the new gp2 cars is identical to it and will be faster too.

Guess it's safe to say that you can still have the 'blade' airbox without breaking the rules.

Indeed, I thought that the blade box was banned...clearly not.

Interesting how Mercedes have ditched it, but FI and Lotus introduce it. From what the engineers said at Mercedes last year in the free practice sessions, getting it to work in reality was difficult, even though it looked great in their simulator.
