I like how narrow that rear wing assembly looks on the head on shot. The cars are going to look less like lawn darts this time aroound Cool shots thanks for posting !

Eek! I'm not crazy about that narrow ass rear wing. I like my race cars with some HIPS! heh. I wonder if that rear wing is mandated by the rules or what.

That front wing reminds me of the nerf bar you see on rental go-karts, especially in the head-on shot...

I think that rear wing looks just as weird as the front one. Will they all be like that from now on?

Also the rims and wheels... it looks like there's no rim, just a picture of a rim where a real one should be...

LOL! Somehow they got into this funk of painting a pic of the wheel on the hubcap.

Front and rear wings look goofy, but the whole middle bit looks so sexy without the winglets... and those slicks.

The wing dimensions are the new mandate so that is pretty much what we will be seeing this year on all of the cars .In other news it was announced that ALonzo will be going to Ferrari no later that 2011 and if Kimi is a whiner and doesn't perform for Ferrari he will be there in 2010.

Where and when was this announced? Rumors of Alonso going to Ferrari have been circulating for at least a year, maybe even two. And Alonso recently resigned with Renault through 2010.

"That is why we confirmed officially Massa and Kimi until the end of 2010. Life is long and in the future we will see. But for the moment we don't have any grey areas regarding drivers for the next two years."

Well unless Bob Varsa and the rest of the speed channel crew were drunk during their first Speed Report show of the season last night its true Stating that he will be there in 2011 fits with the current contracts and the only variable is if Kimi doesn't perform well enough they will buy out his contract. There should be some re runs of the show during the week.

The day I believe anything about F1 that's said on Speed is the day... well, it won't happen.

I'm not saying I don't believe you but, that hardly qualifies as an announcement. Just because a reporter (Bob Varsha) on a news show (Speed Report) says something doesn't make it so. As I mentioned before, rumors about Alonso to Ferrari have been going around for almost two years now and every one has been false to this point. It's also a little odd that there are no other reports of this so-called announcement on F1-Live.com, F1.com or even anywhere on SpeedTV.com.

Until Ferrari announces it themselves, Alonso on Ferrari is about as good as Bigfoot living in the Pacific Northwest.
