Because of technical changes, next year’s Formula 1 cars are going to look bad.
This, according to no less than Ross Brawn and Sam Michael. I picked it up at Auto Motor und Sport.
The key problem: a rule under which the maximum height of the cars’ nose is limited to 550 millimeters “above the reference plane.” (In other words, they won’t be as high — which also means one car will be less likely to jump over another in a crash.)
Here’s what the guys have to say:
“The cars will not get to look beautiful. The nose an ugly wave,” Brawn said.
Michael added: “The front part is reminiscent of a dolphin’s nose in profile… Looks ugly.”
Given how many posts and comments we have here when the cars are released in the winter, this should bode well for plenty of crazy-fun discussions. And probably a number of rants from Grace.
OK… back to Singapore quali.
