  1. The Sauber looks good from that angle.

    1. I still say it has by far the most elegant solution to the aardvark nose. Kinda looks like a Concorde, which makes it quite awesome.

  2. Where’s Marussia?!?! 75 laps and no one managed a single picture..?

    I see you have pictures of Caterham though.. I guess it’s clear where your allegiances lie Keith.

    1. @oppositelocke It won’t need pointing out to the vast majority of people that I don’t care either way, or that drawing such an inference from something as insignificant as the selection of pictures in a gallery is comical. Particularly when it’s one which currently bears the legend “More images will be added here”

      1. Just poking some fun.. Sorry If I didn’t make it clear enough.

        1. @oppositelocke Well I’m pleased to hear that. But no, there was no way of telling you weren’t being serious.

  3. Red Bull’s stopgap cooling solution, literally fixed with duct tape :)

    1. Interesting & good catch. I am guessing that it is a crude cooling intake and exhaust for some electronics hardware. I like how they have to get air in, but also have to lose it again. Great shot.

      1. Yeah, with just one hole, air would stagnate inside and heat would build up, so they have to create a “pass through”, so to speak. I like that in the midst of high-tech carbon fiber composites, they still use what looks like a piece of hose and duct tape to fix it ;)

  4. Thanks the pictures.

  5. That Sauber picture… 👌

  6. Of the protuberant noses, Sauber’s is definitely the best. Mercedes, Ferrari and Force India have more elegant solutions, and I think I like FI’s solution the best. The Sauber from the side is beautiful.

  7. Red Bull still haven’t added the cameras on the nose in front of control arms? Any speculations as to why?

  8. I finally realized what the new cars remind me of.

  9. Sorry, can’t get link to work.They look like Gonzo the Muppet.

    1. I remember someone said that when the Toro Rosso was launched. That is the best name for that nose in my opinion as there’s nothing closer!

  10. That frontal shot of Alonso shows Ferrari running the old front wing, I can’t understand why Ferrari never seem to move on with the new parts, I have barely seen the new wing.

    1. @peartree I think the one in the middle of of the fifteenth row from the top sports the new front wing.

  11. Be blessed Keith for those magnificent pictures you are spoiling us w/ every day…Way to go, cheers !
