Are they really going to have those awful fins again next season? I thought they were banned from 2011 onwards??
In 2007 I had the chance to go to a meet-and-greet with an F1 test driver. I decided not to as I didn't think he'd even amount to much...he was the BMW Sauber test driver and his name was Sebastian Vettel...

Shark fins weren't banned. Shark fins that connected from the rear wing to the roll hoop were.

Ferrari were running a (vestigial) shark fin this year even.

while the first part is correct, the second part is not. Ferrari had a blade above the engine cover for reasons of pure legality. There are minimum dimensions for all parts of the car, the engine cover is no different. Ferrari, like many teams, do not require all the space mandated and therefore fill the remaining space with a "legality blade". Williams has had the most striking example of this from fw34 or 35 up to present day, due in large part to their ultra small gearbox.

Despite the need for Formula 1 and the teams to adapt liveries / color schemes that evoke emotions, awe etc I sense more conservative designs will appear in 2017:

What would be nice to see:

If someone said to me that you can have three wishes, my first would have been to get into racing, my second to be in Formula 1, my third to drive for Ferrari.

What colour is Ferrari moving on to from their Scarlet? From Schumacher era till now, the colour has changed so so much!

Those are too good to be true ! People here always come up with real innovative and bold designs or color scheme, but when the season starts , no cars live up to our expectations. It almost hurts to first dream, and then see what the teams have done. However, i understand they can not do whatever they want, unfortunately !

If they go back to the red with black wings scheme from the 90's cars, I'll be very happy.
