The good news is that the new cars are already running faster on road courses than the previous formula with limited testing. Further turbo, ECU (McLaren), suspension and aero tuning will make these a very quick package indeed.

The looks have really grown on me also. They are much better looking than the weird stepped nose configuration currently in vogue in F1, which is hideous.

Good luck Justin!

I agree about the look of the new car, I don't understand what all the fuss is about, the only bad part is the bumpers behind the rear wheels but I understand and agree entirely with why they did it. Once the individual aero packages come in 2013 things will hopefully improve. Safety is the number one priority right now. Anyway they are a kot better looking than the stupid F1 noses apart from the McLaren.

Hmm, I'm happy to hear good news about this series but as for the look, meh. F1 do look better overall apart from just the nose of course. Still, I'm pretty sure F1 will some day adopt semi covered wheels too.

Anyway, waiting to add good racing, nothing better than having an F1 race in the afternoon and an Indy one in the evening on the same Sunday.
