  1. The Sauber and Williams are way too similar from the front for TV and in mirrors. I hope one of them paints the halo.

    1. +1 to this. And with the relative movements that many fans expect this year, they’re probably going to be running quite close during races as well.

    2. I still like to believe Sauber has a surprise livery in store for the Australian GP and they’re just not telling anyone.

  2. Cars are too long. Pointy and nimble cars please soon. As for Halo, I have to admit I’m not as offended visually as I thought I would be… I just await a car flipping and losing its front suspension.

    1. Sorry, correction with the front suspension. The extraction test was conducted with survival cell only. Anyway, I’m coming around to the halo.

    2. @john-h I don’t find them too long, in fact, I don’t really even notice the difference in height between the cars of the current aero regs and the cars of the previous aero regs.

      1. @jerejj LENGTH not height! These cars are far too long, completely agree with you @john-h

        The longer cars undid a lot of the good work aesthetically that the wider cars brought.

        1. +3694 cm!

      2. @RB14 Yes, length, of course. What a typo by me, LOL.

  3. Just thought I would share live coverage of the test.

    1. No longer available….
