None biased views please. Vote for the car that you HONESTLY think looks the best.

EDIT:

Updated to include the FW35. I have every bit of faith in Maldonaldo. I think he's one of the best drivers of the grid.

NO.

I'm going to add the Caterham & Marrusisa to the thread tomrrow. If you're so confident of the livery and aerodynamics of the car don't vote.

EDIT: Not the Williams, we're not seeing that till the 2nd test. When we get there I will add it.

It's going to be biased simply based off of the drivers people like. I think we have enough of a basis to rate the best looking launched car. I don't wish to begin a discussion into the shallowness of some forumites.

EDIT: Liking the Sauber C32 votes.

McLaren is consistently a looker, so gets my vote.

The Red Bull would do very well at car shows (both of the hot rod & custom and turbo & rotary variety) with such a livery, and certainly seems to be very popular:

Ferrari looks OK. A more simple livery and gold wheels would make it look better IMO.

The Sauber does look nice, but it's a bit backmarkerish really... looks rather like a HRT livery...

I would have liked 2 votes since both Sauber and Red Bull have done an awesome job they share rank 1 for me

and yeah I think its a bit early for this poll too since its unfair towards the teams who have not shown their cars yet, when they will show the cars and if anyone likes them more they cant vote again cause they have already voted

Shame the Marussia didn't just add a black strip and fix a stepped nose - according to Ferrari fans this makes a car which is almost identical to last year "the most beautiful Ferrari ever"

I voted Sauber although I can't understand how people can not be biased in this kind of voting. What is best looking for someone is one of the most subjective things I can think of.

For my defence: it's the first time I vote for Sauber in this kind of voting so maybe I am not biased? :rotfl:

What an useless, biased thread.....

Make a thread. Ask for none biased views. Ask ppl to vote... wait? but not all 2013 cars are launched?


I see you have some great logic there!

New Marussia for sure. How a backmarker can produce such a beautiful car? Speed will be is of course a different matter unfortunately.

The Sauber is the best of a bad bunch. F1 cars haven't looked good for the last 10 years. Especially since the 09 rules.

last year McLaren won this vote imo, sleek nose, and the sharp line along the sidepod, that was a great looking car

this year, the Ferrari is tops by a country mile

I am quite surprised people are liking the Marussia so much. I thought it looked awful, like a feeder series car not a Formula 1 car.

I'm much more surprised by all the votes for Mercedes. I'm pretty sure this is Hamilton effect.

The nose is hideous at best.

The Marussia looks very sleek but think the Sauber just pips it. Glad the step nose has disappeared from most cars.

I was just about to write that. There's just no other reason for Merc to be so high in this poll.

Points to Marussia for bringing something different, but I wouldn't call it beautiful.

Looks like they couldn't decide on engine partners so they stuck one of each under there.
So it should be fast at least. ;)

Caterham could be a winner but its ruined by its awful stepped nose. I like the new shade of green (it will look very nice on TV), and they got rid of those yellow rims ala John Deere.

My vote goes to Sauber.

On overall look i would go with Ferrari. RB gets my vote for shape because that rear end and the side pods look phenomenal.

Just seeing that Marussia i thought in the first moment that was a picture of an old F3000 or Indycar.

I really fell in love with the Mercedes, and I find it hard to believe many people actually consider it to be ugly? :confused:
Toro Rosso are close behind with Sauber third.
Lotus would look nice otherwise, but after seeing it on the track, the livery is horrible....
Marussia is kinda cool, but sort of ugly at the same time :lol:

Really? I didn't know they launched two cars? Surely you weren't talking about the Formula Supercheap thing they unveiled earlier?

Now when Williams has been introduced...well, pretty boring set of liveries this season.

Basically same colour schemes year after year. Only Renault seems to have change quite often.

And we should have yellow cars.

Well, you can't blame teams that they stick with the same colour schemes. It's good thing for them to be associated with a specific colours as long as someone doesn't pay biiiiiiiig amount of $$$ to change the livery.

I agree about yellow, though. If one team goes with yellow now, it would get very easily recognisable. And it may help to attract some sponsors with yellow logos.

But who should do that?:
- Ferrari: No way.
- McLaren: No way. But wait, they're losing Vodafone and free Mercedes engines, they are no longer in the need for current scheme, so maybe...?
- Red Bull: No way.
- Mercedes: No way
- Lotus: Current scheme seems to work well for them.
- Williams: No way. Current livery suits their every current sponsor (maybe apart from Renault) much more than yellow would.
- Toro Rosso: No way.
- Sauber: Hmmm. It could be a possibility, but it looks like they've decided to go with gray.
- Force India: As long as the team's name is Force India, probably not.
- Caterham: They are currently the only one green team, quite recognisable, so no need for a change.
- Marussia: Maybe a possibility here.
