    And that 640 sounded amazing too…twelve cylinders all wailing away tunefully.

    Definitely prefer the BT51 to the 52, the Newey GC891 is a must

    BRM – just beautiful; what a racing car ought to look like:

    Or this one, skinny tyres and no power-steering:

    I wish they would just stop with the rules already. Why arn’t they going 300mph yet? Rockets, loop the loops, upside down in tunnels etc. It could be so much more entertaining 🙂

    Oh, and isn’t it time for Adrian Newey to move to another team again? Boring watching the red bull win all the time. Go to Williams Adrian, make Massa a WC.

    If this is done for safety reasons, surely the droopy nose bit is just going to shear off, leaving the rest of the nose to carry on ploughing into whatever it is the FIA don’t want it to.

    Any engineers care to comment?

    The only optimised F1 car. Exposed wheels are for kids gokarts.

    That’s what the mandatory crash testing is for. The new chassis with the silly noses will still have to pass the test which they wouldn’t if that happened.

    Shame on all of you for not posting a Leyton House another Newey design.
