Just the sort
of an exchange an ad man would like to hear, when and if universal adulation and acceptance is unattainable. Divide et impera
a la "American Idol", eh? And whereas opinions are like (unintelligible
), of course I have mine. It's not horrendously
bad, but seems somewhat rushed, like the graphics guys only had a couple of days (and nights) to play with ideas and muck about with photoshop and sheet printers (Is that font really just plain arial bold slapped into areas that were left empty? Not even an attempt to make a bespoke font?). The red highlights show potential, they have the air of a 60's NASA test plane - they could've gone further with that ("caution" stickers in front of air intakes and all ...). As to the globe ... cartographers have been debating the issue of map projections to this day; the "Honda solution" will give them unnecessary nightmares. They could've done loads with the "Earth" theme without just actually slapping it on ... worst of all, it's such a cliché. Actually, I quite like the look and functionality of Honda F1's website
... any chance those themes could be adapted to the car as well? Eh? How'bout it?
As to the car itself, I'd certainly hope there are development parts coming as Ross Brawn said. In that regard the purpose of this unveiling, beyond the obvious publicity, was left a bit unclear for me. But, man
, that nose is high
. At least they're getting air under the car and can propably improve both the downforce and l/d ratio ... I'm just wondering about the cost in terms of CoG. Or am I to take it that they had theirs forward enough already, even with something to spare? It'll be interesting to compare how the "high noses" compare with the "low noses" ... I guess Renault and Honda are at the opposite extremes now.
