But this is what these mock-ups are for. If the designers are smart they are scrubbing forums just like these to see what people want.

Formula None wrote:Agree that it seems to be an aesthetics driven design. It takes a talented designer/engineer to make something that is both beautiful & effective. Pre-aero era porsches, chaparrals & jaguars come to mind. Even in the modern era there are many fine examples of aero dominated cars that still look great (just check the Most Beautiful F1 car thread). It seems this new IRL car is reaching beyond its designer's abilities though. To me this comes off as unrefined & tacky. Like a McDonalds toy version of the 2011 HRT car. I appreciate that they are making a nod towards drag reduction with the rear wheel trailing surfaces, though. Not breaking much new ground aside from that it seems. In summary, if you have no aesthetic sense, design for functionality. You'll usually end up with something that still looks quite good and avoids coming off as pretentious.

The indy version would actually look good without the hunp in front of the rear wheel and without the cover on the back of the rear wheel.
