A nice colour scheme, hope its quick.
They asked Kimi how he thought F1 was different to the last time he competed. He responded with 'It doesn't really look different, but there is overtaking in some different places where people can just drive past by opening the rear wing and the driver in front has no chance to defend himself, so is this really overtaking? I don't think it counts all the time.'
Nice colour, a very wordy Kimi, good luck 'for sure'!

Despite the platypus nose it's quite a nice looking car to be fair. Hopefully Raikkonen can get used to it quickly. Would like to see a bit of Kimi vs Schumi if Vettel starts running away with it again :p

Best looking duck face so far ! Seems more natural on this car.

Total should realize that a red band with their brand on black rear wing end plates would look better and even more striking.

"Our car is not as ugly as the Ferrari, but it's also not like the McLaren, which doesn't have a kink in the nose at all.
"Ours is just a bit smaller and more elegant (than the Ferrari solution)," the Austrian (Helmut Marko) added. Also yet to be seen is the 2012 Mercedes, with the German marque's Norbert Haug promising, "The most beautiful car will be the one at the front."

This is the best looking car released so far. There is an old saying in jet fighters, if it looks right, it probably is right.
Mclaren is screwed! With Lotus' explanation of why they need a stepped nose, I fear Mclaren may have missed the boat this season.
I don't think Lotus will have any trouble securing fourth in the constructor's championship, and they may get third or perhaps second. The stepped nose of the Ferrari looks like a tacked-on afterthought, while the entire shaping of the Lotus flows and the nose looks organic to the design. I look forward to what this puppy can do in testing and competition.

They've managed to make a stepped nose that looks less hideous than the ones we've seen so far, that's for sure. Definitely the second-best-looking car so far. Let's just hope it can deliver too, would be nice to see Kimi fighting it out up there.
