I like it. Although if the white was black or was more blue and gold it would have been better. Otherwise I'd say that's one of the best looking cars I've seen since 2008. Hopefully the next reveals will be as good or even better.

Yep me too was expecting them to be much wider, the gold does look good wonder if they will get some sponsors before the season begins.

F1 needs this, obviously they'd need to clean up the audio, but it looks awesome.

Love it! I don't think the nose looks too bad on the Renault, although I'd prefer it not to have the tip.

Am I the only one who thinks they are terrible? The noses are awful, the shark fins are just as disgusting as they are on the LMP cars and then other than the rear wing and fatter tyres they look the same as they have done for the last 4/5 years. There was far too much talk of drastically different cars before the reveals. Shame as the livery on the Sauber and Renault are quite nice. And how Williams can consistently make such boring looking cars out of Martini sponsorship is beyond me.

I hate the shark fin, totally ruins the shape. The rest of it looks (well except the nose) good.

I love a good shark fin, that's why the 06-08 cars are my favourites to date. They actually looked like spaceships.

And it's part of the reason I hated that generation of cars, it's horrid. It's like the designers got drunk halfway through, so just drew a straight line.... It just looks so out of place compared to the front of the car, obviously you guys prefer modern cars with bits hanging off of them,  rather than clean sleek looking cars. 

My mate thinks it's an unpopular opinion to like them, so obviously it's not widely loved like it seems to be on here.

The trouble with clean sleek looking cars is they don't always look fast *swishy fast italics*

That was one of my fav things about the 06-08 cars, they genuinely looked fast even when they were standing still :p And so far both of the 2017 cars we've seen have brought back that feeling again for me.

The shark fins are like the stripes on the F of the F1 logo, they make them look quicker. Personally I think that it's a great, aggressive design trait. I've just done a tech article for Read Motorsport and described them as marmite though :p

I expect nothing special from Mercedes lol. Isn't Force India today? I expect nothing from them too.

Think it's just the lighting unfortunately bud. The rest of the pics are in the link below.
