McLaren MCL33

A place to discuss the characteristics of the cars in Formula One, both current as well as historical. Laptimes, driver worshipping and team chatter does not belong here.

It does look to be very beautiful Stegosaurus in these shots with the filters to increase the punch of the colours on the camera!

The most interesting feature is the floor slots being almost full length.

I'd like to hear Nando's impression of the car with the Renault engine after today. Should be interesting to hear about the differences.

It does look really good on track. Hope its similar on TV. Those colors work nicely

Apparently, but isn't that because of the new livery?

Why didn’t they paint the Halo and bargeboards also blue? :|

Agreed.

It's also the only nose that is round on top instead of flat like all the other teams =D> =D>

No, it's just that the mics used for the TV feed aren't really set up right to give tge best sound.

I do wonder if that will change under Liberty Media though...
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...
