    Quite so. The results later this year might tell an interesting story. However it does look odd.

    The double prong of the Lotus is by far the worst looking design this year...

    If you drew some teeth on that front nose on the Caterham you'd have Sigourney Weaver coming along to try and deal with the Alien menace!

    Personally I think the Ferrari nose is one of the ugliest :/

    Looks like an anteater in a Dr. Seuss story.

    At least there's some variation in the designs this year, I suppose. Interested to see how much of an advantage McLaren get from their funky rear suspension, and how long it takes everyone else to copy it.

    Good to finally see some signs of decent pace in testing today, Hamilton just a second away from the fastest race lap time at Bahrain last year.

    Some nice comparisons here, actually: Help us Find the perfect buzzword for these “new look” F1 carsJames Allen on F1

    The Toro Rosso looks like Squidward

    The merc is the only good looking car on the grid really. And good to see it's also one of the quickest. I am giggling at Vettel/Red Bull's form though, long may it continue and they return to their backmarker roots! Or at least far back enough to make Vettel actually do some racing.
