Well, they did seem to fall way off the pace towards the last half of last season, I guess they were putting all their eggs in this year's basket. It would be a real shame to see them get f*cked with an unfavorable championship points/medals structure. Kubica never seemed like the most competitive, win-driven driver to me.
I don't mind the looks of the new car. I like the shorter wheelbase and the slicks, as well as the simplified sidepods. There is definitely something off about the wings, though.
Speaking of aero developments making it on to road cars, don't you think the 09 3-series front spoiler and the middle part of the hood have a similar profile to the 08 F1 car? (And isn't it kind of fugly?)
