    the mercedes is one of the best looking f1 cars ever

    1. I prefer the Toro Rosso, but this and the Merc are the best looking cars on the current grid. A class ahead of all the ugly-nosed cars.

  2. It seems like they tried every combination on the Mercedes with the coat hangar shark fin and nothing at all, I really hope those coat hangar winglets at the back get banned before Melbourne..High up winglets should always be disallowed, I guess atleast they aren’t as bad as the “x-wings” winglets from 1998..

    Redbull seems very difficult to get detailed shots of.. always look very dark.

  4. Nico Hulkenburg’s new helmet design looks so mean! Absolutely love it

    I actually rather like all these cars.

  6. Usually I completely skip looking through the galleries… But this year? Nope. I have to look at every single one. These cars are generally gorgeous from a multitude of angles, and I simply cannot get over how amazing the Toro Rosso looks. I think they look even more spectacular from the stills of them in the rain. Now this is eye candy.

  7. Wonderful gallery Keith, my personal faves are the ‘wet shots’, thanks, and thanks to all Fanatics for managing to keep this place real interesting in the off season and building up feverish anticipation until the lights go out .:)
    Methinks 2017 could be a real interesting …
