    Those shark fins really detract from what is otherwise a good improvement on body styles.

    Force India have just announced that they signed a new sponsor in the form of BWT, a water technology company.

    This is their new livery - and I have no idea what to think about it :D

    I honestly think it's better than the one they ran in testing

    This scheme/company was in DTM last year. Not a bad looking car.

    I guess Nico Hulkenberg doesn't know real men wear pink. :p

    The orange McLaren looks like the old Orange-sponsored Arrows cars. I just hope they aren't as slow.

    Eh that's a bit unfair of a comparison for McLaren

    The 2000 and 2002 Arrows were way faster than McLaren and were able to mix it up front occasionally lol

    In all seriousness, I think McLaren will do better once Honda gets their reliability figured out

    Daniel Ricciardo's car stopped on track. He will not start the race. Devastating for him in his home race.

    It isn't Ricciardo's bad luck, it's Red Bull's bad luck. Kvyat had problems and didn't start in both 2015 and 2016. ;)

    Well he was disqualified from his 2nd place finish in 2014 for a fuel flow irregularity, so that's pretty bad luck if you ask me. But yes, RedBull has been really unlucky in this race the last 3-4 years.

    Looks like Ricciardo might make it to the grid though

    Ut oh this is not a good debut at all for these cars. No one can get close to another car because of the dirty air. You can't pass what so ever. I was afraid of them adding more aero.
