Black & Gold always looks awsome. Reminds me of the JPS BMW's. Painted my first bike in the same colours.
i hope, for Roberts sake, the car goes as good as it looks

I do think it is a shame that they lost the yellow and black from last year which was the best colour scheme on the grid. They had an opportunity to make a statement that regardless of what the team is called, who owns it, or who sponsors it, the car is yellow, just like the Ferrari is always red. It would be good to see some of that long term continuity and identity.

If, and it's a big IF, any wins should occur it will be due to Kubica, not the car, not the engine...which in turn wil mean they'll lose him again right after this year.

but then again, thas prob why Genii and even Lotus are in this gig...get some results, sell off the lot for a healthy margin...

at least there's one benefit of two lotus outfits, awesome looking cars. personally, i think team lotus' car is slightly prettier but both teams have done a good job. lotus renault gp (black and gold) though should be faster. if not, they'll look foolish.

I also am for the racing rather than the corporate camp and know who Colin Chapman would back. I think the only team who deserves to win is the best one and somehow I think this team will not feature too much in the fight for the championship. Just saw the Mercedes and it looks good. The grid is going to look a lot better than last year with all these nice cars i've seen unveiled recently.
