I'll go for the williams too. But much like the Honda last year, i'd rather have the testing livery.

I won't criticize anyone's choice because beauty is clearly in the eye of the beholder. Having said that, I think this year's Red Bull looks rather nice. But my nod goes to Williams. Kudos for they're really fine effort! :up:

An Italian tifoso who voted for McLaren?? - DAMN...they are going to revoke my Italian passport.

Still, those chrome covered, curved rear wing endplates... I defy anyone to find something more aesthetically pleasing to look at.

The Williams?? Nice lines...but rather traditional and a little behind the times if ya ask me...(kinda suits Williams to a tee!!)

I can't go past the Mclaren, its a mixture of both colour and the panels.

The Ferrari is always purely functional using the philosophy that a fast car is always beautiful, but the Mclaren is the perfect mix as much as it pains me to say it.

Williams as well. A lot of them have got colour schemes that Jackson Pollock would have been aghast at and others just look like someone threw a handful of wings on from a distance and then decided to stick more wings on those wings.

The Williams looks elegant and efficient and the colour scheme is, although not the lovely blue of pre-season testing, what good taste is about.

Regards

Andy

Ferrari is still very beautiful, like last year, but their front-end is a little bit overcomplicated and therefore messy. McLaren is stylish as ever.

But this year it is Williams!!! :love:

They do say that the better it looks the better it goes, so I expect to see a competitive Williams this year and I think the BMW is a fabulously detailed car too.

That a Ferrari beautiful is rather a given, especially now with the deep metallic red. However, just for the sheer elegance of its execution, I tip my hat to Williams. :up:

At the moment, the poll has Williams miles ahead, followed by Ferrari and McLaren and the rest combined just about match McLaren. Maybe someone should forward these results to some of the graphic design geniuses behind the other designs and tell them they're onanists or something.

In order of beauty:

Williams
Red Bull
McLaren
BMW (although the front horns are hideous)
Toro Rosso

The rest are as ugly as each other and once again the Ferrari looks like a tarted up hairdressers car!

Of course, the McLaren would be the better hairdessers car, as only someone with the vanity of a hairdresser would prefer to sit in a car surrounded by reflective chrome surfaces. Perfect for primping at any speed. Just make sure the polish is dry before entering the apex, you don't want to chip a nail on the gear selector. ;)

I still think McLaren are missing a trick. Just have plants with powerful spotlights on various corners, and whenever a car looks like overtaking just use the specular reflection to dazzle them into falling back.

Slightly more seriously, I wonder if the night race will necessitate a slight variation in McLaren scheme?

Didn't the cars already test at night at IMS? Not to mention last year's launch in Valencia, if anyone was going to be blinded it would've been there. :stoned:

Go check with the city's Bureau of Health Statistics and see if there was a spike in ophthalmology appointments in the days following the event.

Only seven votes so far for BMW? I like it, Williams and Ferrari very much.

RIP Force India's testing livery. You were too good for this world.
