All they've shown us is this orange thing.


here's an article mentioning that the new car won't be seen for a few weeks yet:

Ahh at least we can get a look at the bodywork, nice

I'm not sure if I'll be making it down to the USGP this year, but I am considering getting a $90 Sunday ticket for the Canadian Grand Prix, considering the track is about half a mile from me across the water

nothing will ever top this for me...



I mean... maybe it was a little squared, but it was the best damn car I've ever seen run... anywhere





what a FINE era for Formula 1... the best era EVER... no one can deny that... Prost, Senna, Mansell, Berger, Alesi, Piquet, Larini, Salo... I mean.... the best were in that time... 87-94... amazing.. and McLaren was THE BEST... especially...



Senna IS THE MAN...

Agreed. That Marlboro Mclaren was the greatest car of all time, and Senna was the greatest driver.

i remeber that sportscar with the wing doors when I was little - it was never really build, but I have an orange picture of it in my mind.
check out all these great pictures of "orange mclaren" I just found on google:

Quite true, such grit, talent and spirit.
Was just rewatching the 1994 San Marino GP for the first time since I saw it as a child. Even at 7 I knew the gravity of what happened

i am so sorry I was too young when he was racing.

I remember seeing a TV special about his life, career and of course the accident. It was so terrible...
I was in primary school when he died, and the boy that sitted next to me was a huge Senna fan. He cried for days...

F.ck!!!
Once again they've dropped the Belgium GP, the best track in the world to get out because of money...................
this is so shameful!!!.........................What other track has the beauty of the Eau Rouge






Anyway, the new Ferrari looks pretty good, the V8 responded good, and everything looks to be on top again, the aerodynamics design is very interesting..................the red rocket is back again, we know, we know........................it's already known who wins........

Well, I hope Ferrari is right up there with Renault and Mclaren this year. A three-way title chase would be fantastic.

I also hope to see Sauber and Jacques Villeneuve do a bit better this year considering they're under BMW power now.

It is certainly a beautiful combination of ugly design features

Ant-eater nose AND devil horns
