Finally watched Ford V ferrari. Great film and Ford come out looking like a bag of dicks.

Not sure it was entirely necessary to say that Miles didn't go in 65 though since he did. Was it not all dramatic enough already.

God, why even have this season. I hadn't looked over the schedule previously, and holy crap at some of the travel distances for some consecutive weekends. This is what happens when you let the venue pick a day and not make any attempt at location continuity.

Melbourne > Sakhir is ridiculous.
Baku > Montreal is extremely ridiculous but hey at least you can use the same car spec and setup.
Singapore (night race means -1 travel day) > Sochi is even more ridiculous. I'm practically exhausted just thinking about how brutal these will be on the teams.

We'll know early how awful the Hanoi race will be, at least! A break through the entirety of April is gonna be weird. Someone is legit going to die pushing the car too fast through the Daytona-style Zandvoort banked turns. Don't expect anyone outside the top 3 teams to spend a single cent on upgrades for these cars vs investing resources into next year.

Yeah it's bloody ridiculous. If you want back to back races (and I love them) at least put them in sensible places. Don't cry about going green and then deliberately take the longest route to get everywhere.

Not a fan. The application of the black in the bottom makes car looks very blocky and long. Shame, I thought the 2019 livery was the best of the field.

The rear end of the McLaren is just weird. It doesn't taper in, in fact it looks like it tapers back out.

Don't like it at all. It's not ugly per se, it just looks the kind of design we'd see from bottom-feeder team in the late 90's or early 00's. Really doesn't scream historic team.

I'm still a fan of the orange because it's very distinctive. The blue becoming more prominent isn't my favorite, but eh.

You need to consider this photo is under lighting.

I suspect the blue will look, and probably is exactly the same, as last year's livery.
Ahh, you're absolutely right, but the hue seems a bit different still. Looks like the orange was lighter and the blue more saturated last year.

I like that color of orange on the McLaren. It looks awesome. Hopefully they can finish 4th again, leading into next season when they get that Mercedes power.

James Allison regarding the W11
"At the rear of the car we have gone for an adventurous suspension layout in order to free up aerodynamic development opportunity."
and seems they found even more downforce for the same amount of drag they had last year....should be interesting

Wow that Alpha Tauri livery is incredible. The red/blue from before was ok, but this black/white with the red Honda logo looks amazing.

Alpha Tauri is the best one so far, followed by Haas. Purely based on the colour schemes. Don't find the others particularly interesting. I want Ferrari to go for a deeper red one day.
