The cockpit isn't especially far forward, its an optical illusion caused by the very long rear. This has ended up being very large because the Cosworth Motor is much bigger than the Merc, Ferrari and Renault lumps and this year a 2 year old Williams KERS has been strapped onto it too. It looks like the old "limousine" from 2010 that they introduced mid season because of the fuel capacity issues!
