  1. Still no Merc pics? Is there some sort of copyright thing preventing this?

    1. More images will be added here.

      When a text is in italics, it doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be read.

      1. There were none yesterday, and none so far today … I don’t think it’s completely unreasonable to at least inquire. I was curious.

        Also, just because a question about a kind of odd-seeming apparent trend was asked doesn’t automatically mean italicized notes weren’t read.

        In fact, with a major team under-represented, the moments prior to additional content being published is possibly and ideal time to drop a hint or make a request?

        1. I agree that there were none yesterday, but I’m saying you should wait before drawing conclusions on today’s gallery as it is not finished yet.
          Here are some hi-res Mercedes pics:

          from the official Formula 1 website.

          1. thx for the links, nice!

            I didn’t draw any conclusions, that was kind of my point in asking a question. If they’re on the way, great!

          2. wonder what device on the side of the airbox is.

    2. Is there some sort of copyright thing preventing this?

      Obviously I can only put up images I have approval to use.

      1. Appreciate the clarification Keith.

      2. Just out of curiosity is approval withheld by a specific photographer you use or by the teams not giving the rights to allow their cars to be photographed (if such a thing can be done)?

      3. Why do McLaren and Mercedes allow pictures from races but not from tests?

  2. Added images of Luiz Razia, Kevin Ceccon and Jean-Eric Vergne.

  3. I’m sure Johnny Cecotto delivers my papers, or walks my dog, or something. He looks about 12!

    1. Yeah, I was about to say – not even “twelve” as a general term for “really young.” He looks ACTUALLY twelve!

  4. With all honestly, I’m sitting here thinking Bianchi has the best looking helmet. What about everyone else?

    1. @scuderiavincero Looks a little dull to me to be honest!

      1. @AndrewTanner Hahaha, to each his own, I’ll say :) I assume it’s my preference to super-simple designs. And the fact it looks ever so slightly like Kimi Raikkonen’s helmet.

      2. @AndrewTanner @scuderiavincero I’m not sure if I like any of them! But Gutierrez has the worst…

  5. What about McLaren pics?

    1. there is only few shots from mclaren’s garage in….makes me wonder why there is no on-track pic from them…
