With the exception of the F-duct, I rather like the 2010 cars.

I have to agree with Javi 100%. The engine sounded the most beautiful as well - nothing on this planet sounds better than a Ferrari F1 V12.

I have to agree with the OP, the current crop of F1 cars, aren't that good looking, too many little winglets and aero aids. Plus the rudder that goes from the roll bar/airscoop to the rear wing totally messes with the lines of the current crop of cars (very fugly IMHO.

Fast yes, nice looking no.

This does. From :09 to :24 is ridiculous.


And just as a comparison, here's the Ferrari V12.

Although that does sound good (fantastic, actually), I stand by my statement. I prefer the scream of the V12 over the howl of the V10 - but it's pretty damn close.

Yeah. They're both great but that V10 just sounds like a banshee.

F2004... just because its the combination of somewhat classic (80s) styling and some modern flare and it doesnt have too many flares and winglets.

Thanks!!! That v12 is fantastic, I played it full blast on my stereo!

I too much prefer the look of the older F1 cars...

Then there's this - you've heard it before...

+2 The Marlboro logo on McLarens is pretty iconic too. The red white scheme was classic, though I did also like the West livery. And the new Vodafone livery looks spectacular IRL. It has the look of tinted chrome, definitely cool on a racecar.
