This is pretty much what you can say about F1 today. 80% of the lineup has a very identical chassis, and the platypus nose is a hit. HRT is an odd outsider, mainly because they are still using their 2011 car, since the new one didn’t pass the crash tests. Props for the new logo though, it’s golden palette sure feels rich. I’m really rooting for them, like I always do for the underdogs, but the gold vs. white really is sending a wrong message here - “Look, we are so golden we can only afford the cheapest shade of white…”
Anyway, coming back to the lineup, I’m really looking forward to seeing how McLaren competes. They seem to be taking a gamble with the traditional, good-looking chassis front. I trust their engineers calculated everything properly. They were using the low chassis for a few seasons now - but it was RedBull with its higher chassis that dominated the recent years. Still, I’ll be rooting for them. And for Lotus, because of Kubica. And maybe Kimi, the guy is insane, I hope he shows the young guys how to drive.
