That RB7 looks incredible! The rear end is just...gone! Looks like they've pioneered the first gearbox made completely of air!

Looks like Newey isn't that smart. He forgot about a gearbox. :p

Holy crap, the R31 and the RB7 look like serious contenders! The front-blown exhaust on the R31 and that rear of the RB7 are awesome!

Any pics of the new Mercedes?

Just need Mclaren after that then thats the heavy hitters done. So far, its Renault for me. That car looks fantastic, I hope its not a dog. I am expecting something bordering on ridiculous from Mclaren... no idea why.

I made a small comparision:



The pictures were quite small though, so I might have made some mistakes with scale. I did my best to adjust them according to the front wheel.

Right, this year is shaping up nicely already, can't wait to see the cars turn a wheel in anger at Bahrain.

Friday is sooo long away though, I can't wait to see what McLaren has whipped together.
