After seeing photo's of the F1 cars in 2009 regulation spec, I think it's so ugly, I thought the current F1 cars is bad enough with all these wings, but this is yuk!

They should ban wings and aerodynamic aids for 2010.

It was good enough for Moss and Fangio. 8)

I agree but when did purpose have a good looking face. The most beautiful car of all time in my opinion was the Lamborghini Muira and that was one of the worst handling high speed cars due to the terrible aerodynamics. The underneath caused lift like a wing and at 170 was leathal.

You could also say the same of the Pikes Peaks cars, they need all the aerodynamic aids they can fit to force them to the ground!

Shame as the ones that go in a straight line are prettier as they spoilers reduce the top speed! Give me a 250 GTO any day, sleek with a monster V12 like they used to be!!

The new regs are supposed to increase the chance for cars to get close enough to overtake.

I see two fairly fundamental issues here:

1. Any driver getting close to one of those is likely to loose his front wing (just look how damn wide it is, they'll be knocking them off ten to the dozen)

2. Any driver getting close to one of those is likely to loose his lunch :D

The rear wing on the Williams is that high because the engineers were complaining of back ache from pushing it down pit lane :wink:
