It seems the Ferrari is inspired by the Adrain Newey designed RedBull of 2009 .

Its going to be one hell of a season.

I am waiting to see the cars and then their testing times tell a lot about them.

Lets start separate polls on constructors championship and drivers championship and start predicting

Supposed to be the Ferrari livery for 2010 from a commercial shoot for Santander!

IMO it looks ugly with way too much white

The aero package looks odd. The intake above the driver helmet too is aesthetically not pleasing. With the no fueling rule this time they are sure increasing the fuel tank capacity to max, may be that is why a long wheelbase. And yes, too much of white makes it look more Toro Rosso than scarlet Scuderia.

Why can't Santander get white on red rather than red on white? In any case, we'll soon get used to it. When McLaren tried out their new chrome scheme, it was a bit weird but now I just love that colour combination and its the best looking paint job on the grid IMO. Its a matter of time before everyone gets used to it.

The MP4-21 with the horns near the intake looked awesome!

It will be interesting to see who will be carrying this theme this season now that Mclaren & Mercedes have almost becoming 2 different entities in F1.

Default Schumi's New Car: The 2010 Silver Arrows is launched.

The new Silver Arrows F1 works team [MERCEDES GP PETRONAS] was presented at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart today.

Schumi and Rosberg along with team management Ross Brawn, Nick Fry and Norbert Haug were introduced to guests with a presentation.

The guys have done a great job with regard to the looks of the car. The Mercedes livery rendering appears really cool even with the 2010 aero rules.
