Truth.

F1 cars have been hideous for at least a decade. The giant balloon tires killed any chance they had.

I like the detail on the rear wing uprights that Lotus have added.

Probably mostly for style, if they gave any real advantage they would not have released image with this wing configuration.

Why have the nose heights changed so much over the years. This year they say it's for "safety and better launching," but what were the reasons before?

Sauber C33

Will link directly to the source on this one, as they had a 'leak' this morning, put the photos live a little early and ppl figured out the URLs distributed before their official launch.

Car looks great from what they have released.

The Sauber is the best looking one so far, at least from that angle.
