I quite like the color scheme. It's clean and simple. I also like the Toro Rosso cars with their deep blue and dark red bull. This scheme looks like they took paint and just tossed it into the wind tunnel. It flows nicely over the lines of the car.

Technically...BGP001 IS slapped together the last minute....at least the mercedes engine is strapped on the last minute before their first testing....and of coz they have no sponsor back then....

But somehow the white base with bright yellow highlighter color and black looks quite nice....

I disagree, I though the Brawn car looked like a GP2 car among F1 cars...
like an amateur car in a pro series... But hey at the end of the day, the important thing is how the car performs

Believe it or not I am not a massa fan, I am a long time supporter of Mclaren and big fan boy of Lewis Hamilton... I also like Vettel very much.
My childhood idol was Senna, and I never forgave Shumi for celebrating the win in Imola 94 when senna was fighting for his life. I am excited though at the prospect of having Schumi back but do hope that lewis and/or Vettel beat him on track

I guess BGP001 was originally planned to be painted or designed with Honda colors (or watever green stuff they want to put on) in mind...which based on white....so after Honda pulled out....Ross just get someone to "design" and add some strips and call it a day....better than nothing eh?

I'll be right there with you rooting for Vettel. I can't root for Lewis -everythinghandedtomeonaplatter- Hamilton tho.

Vettel definetely has a bright future ahead of him... Red Bull can give him a winning car and long term I think both Ferrari and Mercedes GP want his services.
He just has to get to the next level and stop making silly mistakes

Damn...tough critic. Give the kid a break. He almost won the title in only his 2nd full season and only his first season in a competitive car.....

How many mistakes had Vettel made last season?

-The accident he had with Kubica in Australia.
-Went wide on first lap in Turkey (or Bahrain?) and over taken by Button.
-"Speeding" in pitlane during Singapore GP (which he took a short cut after he entered the speed limit zone).

There were few times during chaotic qualify (Japan and Brazil) that he brought himself into a bad start but still gave out a good race and took P1 in Japan and P4 in Brazil, just a bit too late. I want to see him more on podium this season, great passion and personality.

Even though I'm a Hamilton (now adding Button...tough choice) and McLaren supporter. But I can tell Vettel WILL win more than 3 World Champions in his F1 career. He has the ingredients of a champion, just need a team even better and consistant than RBR (yes, RBR is growing and getting better...so watch out McLaren and Ferrari).

Eventually one of the big teams will want him as the number 1 driver.

Better car....team also sabotaged Alonso's efforts as well... Regardless, his next championship will be a ways off. Last season showed he cannot be competitive unless everything is 100% perfect. Not true of other drivers. So tired of the "wunderboy" status given to Lewis. He is no better or worse that any of the top 5 drivers in F1.

He did pretty well in a dog especially the 2nd half of the season... and even then it was so obvious how little down force the Mclaren had in all the fast corners compared to the rest of the field...

As for being no better or worse than any of the top 5 drivers... Who do you consider top 5 ?

In my eyes it has to be:

Shumi
Alonso
Vettel
Hamilton
Massa

And yes I agree they are all very close in terms of pure raw talent and speed


As for the team sabotaging Alonso:
Dude sabotaged himself when he could not handle the propsect of a rookie being faster than him... God forbid

For once we agree. Except for the part. I like Alonso.
