    I had to chuckle after seeing the nose of the ferrari. All the fanboys were screaming about ferrari having the only original design, and it appears that they've ripped the front nose off the RBR, including the 'raised' edges. Silly tifosi :hehe:

    Crikey it's pretty striking. I swear someone from McLaren was saying how they didn't like the sharkfin last year though :lol:

    Rumour has it that the Italian press attending the McLaren launch have heard results from the first wind tunnel test of the F10 - "less than satisfactory"...uh oh.

    Yes - they've delayed their shake down haven't they?

    By the way - it's busy busy busy at Silverstone:

    Lots of pics of the work going on to create the new layout.

    UG - where did you get the press pics from? Macca site?

    Think the press pack was taken down as it went online before the launch :lol:

    Knocked this up in GIMP, bit rough as the MP4-25 pic is pretty small but it looks like the Ferrari has a couple of cm extra wheelbase as usual. You can also see just how long the F10 nose is:

    Edit - good to see JB has gone back to a Union Jack lid :D

    New Mc looks pretty good, but I'd rather it was less bling tbh - too much silver.

    Link about F10 failsauce?

    I'm more interested about the MP4-25's wing... looks like it should give insane downforce, to the effect of the double diffuser last season.

    The F10 shown yesterday was fitted with 2009 front and rear wings, not sure about the MP4-25 though. Edit - judging by this shot from Yas Marina at least the front wing shown was new. Edit2 - man that is a complicated front wing: http://www.f1fanatic.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/mclaren_mp424and5_front.jpg

    Valencia testing is 1st-3rd Feb, hence the Renault & Sauber launches there on Sunday and the MercGP, RBR and Williams launches on Monday. Busy weekend :D
