I have to say, IMO Marrusia have the best looking livery and colour scheme of any car on the current grid. That's half the reason to why I like them.

Worrying lack of sponsors - but as a result the livery looks fantastic! They've done well to get the car ready in time this season considering their budget.

I like the little detail on the side of the nose - looks like snake eyes!

In that livery it looks great!

Hope it catches up with the midfield teams.

I still cannot decide if it is the livery that makes the car look like an old, lower formula car, in a larger scale, or if it actually is made like that.

Anyway, interesting stuff!

The return of the b192 - b194 nose. Symonds still there?

Edit: And the engine cover is similar to ferraris 1994 model. Blast from the past.

Have to wonder about that - perhaps it's because until the second driver (and their sponsors) are revealed, it's not clear who should get better placement etc.

Symonds worked fulltime under dev. of this car AFAIK. That's the reason why I think this car will be surprisingly good.

Just remember, I'm usually wrong when it comes to what cars are going to be fast&slow

I think that's due more to the bulk of the Cosworth engine than a pure design feature.

I'm not sure that's a good thing for their competitiveness, but I don't mind the look.

Looks hot. But that's the lowest nose we've seen (so far). Hmm. Let's see what she can do on the track.

Doesn't that look like last year's Mac? Are they finally reaping the benefits from that technical partnership?
Edit: More like from 2 years ago. Maybe bits from 1995's Mac. :D

Considering the size and budget of the operation, it's a miracle there is a car to look at.
But I'm not holding out much hope for it getting out of Q1.

It looks good, if rather basic aerodynamically. Still I was reading Gary Anderson and he seems to think it's a solid base that can be improved upon.

Disappointed with the look of that car, it reminds me of a generic Formula car from something like Race Driver Grid...

Shame because with the colour scheme they have, their cars can look very attractive, this year however the livery doesn't suit that car design and it's made worse by the lack of sponsors to distract from the shape!

I know....different tastes and all....but I'm genuinely shocked there's people who dont think that looks absolutely great. Reminds me that I've never been particularly big on high nose formula cars in the first place.

The new HRT.

They will fold this year. The lack of sponsors reminds me of the late Jordan days. This team is dead in the water.

The shape of the underside of the nosecone. Likewise it's similar to the red and grey launch-spec DW12.
