They can deploy angry birds, make ice cream, and have anti-mumble technology. Good enough?

Ferrari Launches 2013 F138 F1 car



Ferrari have launched the car with which they hope to capture the 2013 drivers' and constructors' championships. The F138 - the name denotes the current year and the car's V8 engine, which will be used for the last time this season - was unveiled at the Italian team's Maranello headquarters on Friday.

With limited changes to the regulations for 2013, the F138 is an evolution of last year's race-winning car, although every single part has been revised in order to maximise performance while maintaining the characteristics which were the basis of the F2012's superb reliability.

Read more about the Ferrari F138

The F138 is much better looking then the 2013 Lotus with the ugly stepped nose.

Force India unveiled their 2013 F1 Car

Force India 2013 VJM06 F1 Car

Force India unveiled their 2013 contender, the VJM06, at Silverstone on Friday morning, with Paul di Resta - the team's only confirmed driver for the new season - helping to pull the covers off the new car, before giving it a brief track debut around the British Grand Prix circuit.

"Seeing the car built and complete for the first time is a special feeling," said Di Resta. "I've followed its progress in the tunnel and it looks very impressive - aggressive and fast. Now I'm just eager to get out there and see where we stand compared to our competitors. After the winter I feel refreshed and keen to get back to business."

The VJM06 is the third car to be overseen by Force India technical director, Andrew Green, and builds on the strengths of the team's 2012 car, which took them to seventh in the constructors' table. With stable technical rules the car is more evolution than revolution, with the addition of a 'modesty panel' to cover the stepped nose being the most obvious visual change.

Read more at formula1.com

Another flat nose car like the Ferrari F138. I think it looks much better then the stepped nose on the Lotus E21.

Don't like FI for delaying their driver lineup. Rooting for DiResta though!

Yeah that too. Was genuinely rooting for them when they had Sutil.

A one night stand with Sebastian Vettel will fix that.
