Greetings Formula 1 fans.
I will leave it to Internos to start a new 2009 Formula 1 season thread as he is way more qualified than I on this topic.
But I need to rant about this new car ...
I am watching the Australian GP qualifying and I have to say I have never been more disappointed with the sport.
This new car design is absolutely horrendous. They look terrible, like some cheap toy car from the 80's. They look worse than Indy cars. The car
is too narrow, the front wing is waaay to big, the nose is too high, and the rear wing looks like a box. The whole thing is a disgrace.
They went from being the most beautiful cars in the world to looking like an anachronistic joke.
I mean look at it ...
This is the 2008 Ferrari F1:
And this is the 2009 version:
What is that in the front, a snow plow?
Oh and by the way, these changes were supposedly made to slow the cars down. Well guess what, they're running near track record times in Australia.
I am a lifelong passionate Formula 1 fan and I am seriously considering not watching this year. I will give it a chance for a couple of races because
I have been told it will improve the racing.
It better, or else I'm out.
What a shame.
