These threads get shorter and shorter every year...lol.

New cars are up!  How does the Halo look?  McLaren going to fail again?  Is Bernie going to find a clause in his contract and take control of the sport again?   :mamoru2:

I LOVE the Red Bull testing livery, wish they'd use that for the year...  Sauber looks clean, and I really like the Renault...  Unfortunately the looks is about the only thing that's probably going to be worth watching this year, I just want any team to give the Merc's a run for the money this year!

Halos seem to be blending in somewhat, at least in the glamour shots.  Good tp see Alpha on the grid.

 

Only hoping it isn't another merc romp.

The Halo isnt that bad honestly...as long as the car is not in white.  

Alfa Romeo is HAWT.  But they all the paint schemes this year are a step up.  I do not understand what is up with the penis nose still being around tho...but they got rid of the shark fins and coat hangers?

Color schemes this year are pretty good so far.

Renault looks really good, that black with yellow epic, Sauber looks nice with the Alfa theme, RedBull should keep the blue camo, Ferrari will be red, McLaren orange and Merc silver...

Seriously...with all these years, I would have thought the penis nose be gone by now.  What in the serious fuck.

If you took the Haas and removed all Haas logos it would look more depressing than the Macca.  Don't know if it would be better for them to just plaster McLaren all over the car or just leave it blank.  At this point, "Your logo here!" might be an improvement.

Who here thinks that all of McLaren Honda problems were actually due to McLaren now?  

Toro Rosso is doing just fine with the Honda powerplant....while McLaren can barely start without some tyupe of issues.

Starting to wonder if engine packaging is/was the issue. McLaren are cutting extra vent holes on the engine cover for more cooling as there are burn marks appearing near the back of the car.

Maybe it was packaged too tight and the engine and batteries just kept overheating?

STR-H was over a second faster today than the McLaren plus the STR-H was on Soft tyres vs SS for McLaren... 

 

 

Ohh and Vettel was fastest on Mediums vs. the Merc. on Soft I WANT TO BELIEVE!!!

I think with Alonso's perpetual luck of being in the wrong team since '06, it could happen that STR finishes ahead of Macca by seasons end. That might just be the straw that breaks the camels back.

If you look at the sidepod packaging on the McLaren...it has the least amount of cooling of any of the Renaults powered cars.  This trend was similar when they ran Honda motors too...

Internally, McLaren's aerodynamics team should get dick slapped by Alonso.

McLarry puts down 7 laps before Alonso stops with an oil leak again...what the fuck. 

Torro Rosso mean while goes 4th quickest with a Honda powerplant.  I hope TR beats McLarry this year.
