Not as keen on the look of that, doesn't look like they have really done much, the livery swooshy thing is nice though.

Quoted just so you can see that they are indeed on wet tires in the dry.
Surely that's not allowed.
I'd give them a 10 place grid penalty for race 1 for that.

They have an interesting bit of kit towards the rear that's only in some shots.

It will be interesting to compare the lap times from this year and last.
Will they be fast enough in the race to beat the pole times from last year?

Interesting that Mercedes haven't gone for a full fin.

They will. No doubt run it in every practice session and decide to race it on a weekend by weekend basis.

Hmm...

so, are they bringing the year of 2006 where the cars looked as wide as the 2017? :o

The ferrari is really ugly around the middle. Interesting they have exactly the same little winglet as MErcedes, even down to the little down turned ends. How does that happen?

The sharkfin looks ridiculous compared to the other cars

The shape of the McLaren looks weird, the colour scheme is strawberry floating hideous. It looks like an old Minardi!

Ron Dennis had a vision of McLaren as a British Ferrari. It would seem the new owners have a different vision. :dread:

They've had pure orange cars in testing in the 90s which looked great. This looks like a fan skin from rfactor.
