    I know it's weird because of the shade, but come on, that's a Marussia with a Honda sticker...

    Too much talk about color and not enough about details--you all sound like a bunch of girls.

    I find the McLaren radiator covers radically different--can see the ground (or is that an optical illusion?). Also, they are the only team (so far) to go with scalloped edges dropping from the nose (the Mercedes' are a bit further back, and the Renault's dropped edge is straight). FI opted for a more angled, stepped nose (where the suspension attaches) than the others and, as usual, their nose design is wildly different from the others.

    What else design-wise, am I not seeing? What do you notice that I need to pay attention to as a fan?

    McLaren often debut their cars in orange then change it for the season. Looks like they are going to stick with orange this year, which is nice, although not orange enough for my liking.

    That's not ground, just white paint.


    It has the same kind of gills on the rear wing as on the nose. Is it stepped? I can't tell.

    Sidepods and intake seem smaller than some of the other cars.


    Oh, and if it's not pretty how can you expect it to be fast?

    They are remarkably similar although from the front the black vs orange nose is a big difference.

    Mclaren seems to have a very cluttered area around the barge boards and side pods.

    I am amazed how shallow alot of the noses seem to be. Whether its due to shorter drivers not needing leg room or what, but they look deceptively tricky to hold legs

    Ferrari's sidepods are very unusual. Will make clearing any debris out of the tricky.

    Mercedes dont seem to have gone for a shark fin yet. I imagine things like this may change before the season.

    I'm sure I've seen that McLaren before:

    I'm really ok with the Mclivery, I think they were going after this:
    I just hope it's good for a podium. One can only hope
    Now the Merc looks tight and I'm pretty sure it will be the class of the field!
