Lol Glock at the end…

RBR at Circuit de Catalunya.

Spy shots of the new Mercedes W03 F1 car. Did anyone really think it would look any different than that? Hail to the platypus :P

In another news, Petrov will replace Trulli at Caterham. It’s probably a pretty much meaningless change, except it will be the first time since 1970 that an Italian driver is not on the grid for the start of a Formula 1 season, as noted by Autosport.

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.

Above is Force India with its hammerhead nose. Are they planning to hit someone with it? It’s in fact cool and grotesque at the same time. Below - a proper F1 nose by McLaren.

It’s all good at the back. It’s all flat at the front. Damn you, FIA. It’s all good at the back. It’s all flat at the front. Damn you, FIA.

Looking at the best-looking car in the lineup, I really can’t understand the FIA with its platypus rules.

Bac Mono. If your father didn’t force you into a go-kart when you were 7, and you didn’t end up in F1, do not despair. This British single-seater will give you all the thrills while still road-legal. Meet your 280bhp, 2.8sec-to-60, 170mph man-child dream on four wheels.
