F2012 unveiled

My first reaction ........they should have kept it veiled.
My second reaction....preferably under a ton of concrete mix.

If its a winning car all cosmetic flaws will soon be forgiven. Fingers crossed.

It does look kind of off -- ever since the 2009+ Formula 1 season, when rear wings were drastically reduced in size, the cars looked ugly.

The best-looking Ferrari Formula 1 cars were during the early 2000's up to 2008.
Everything just clicked, and the proportions look right.

Wow, there was some serious aerodynamic overhaul done this year. Since they couldn't modify the engines too much, the teams are obviously putting enormous effort into this area. It will be very interesting to see what difference it makes.

Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.

My point exactly. Who cares what it looks like if it's coming first!

I'm sorry guys if that was a Ferrari road car we'd all be shaking our heads in disbelief. I can't believe I'm saying this as a lifetime Ferrari follower but compare it to the 2012 Mc***n what's happened

What has my heroes done to their beautiful cars.

But if the Mc****n falls apart because they don't have this step-nose thing like the teams are going with this year they will look quite silly. I don't care what it looks like as long as Ferrari is competitive again. Ferrari certainly has the driver to pull it off and hopefully now they have the car.

Street cars can be pretty and the F1 cars can look like a spaceship as long as the come in 1st.

It is a bit of a dog in the looks department, i,m sure the guys at the top would say different . but as every one says, as long as it works on the track and, the driver is 100% committed, then we should see more win,s and for the other drivers they should see more of its rear.

Melbourne

after qualifying in Austraila, we will get a good idea of where Ferrari stands, after reading that article, things dont look to good, not much time left before the first race, and it seems they have major ground to make up,

And more surprisingly, a Toro Rosso 2nd. Don't think we can read too deeply into this, but still nice to see a Ferrari at the top of a timesheet.

If I were Massa, I would be delighted just to be back driving a Ferrari this year.

True for last year and this year.
He seems to have lost his way in the recent past.
