Ferrari released images of the F2012 today... thats an ugly nose design, they probably call it the delta integrale nose lol. The rest looks good.

Yup, not feeling the Ferrari car this year,but as long as they perform well, then looks are irrelevant.

Here's a pic of the new Force India VJM05.

They seem to always be one step ahead of the rest. So it should be interesting.

Which i was going to add, apparently there is a lot of dummy parts on the Mclaren, they might show up with a different front end on test day who knows. People are speculating that the whole rear end of that car is all fake.

Almost a month to go before the 1st race.

I wonder if it's a ploy by Adrian Newey. Make a car with the gimpy nose, make all the others think it's his latest secret, make their cars like that, and then beat em by not using that BS.

I anticipate there being a lot of front-end pieces all over the track this year.

I don't think they could be faking the step nose.. The whole reason for it is the rules and how it has to be lower for side impact protection... If they some how get rid of the step they would have to do it through a new chassis and suspension design ... Stupid safety

Lol red bull prob has the biggest step cause they worked some magic and got benifit from making the nose extra low

I also wouldn't be surprised If they tried to use the rad air for a blown diffuser 2.0... Should it be hot enough... It kinda seems like that's what the ferrari's doin

Anyone else paying close attention to the front noses on the Force India and Redbull?
