Thank you, Mercedes.
They always had the best looking noses since the 2014 shake up. (Which in a way is surprising, 'cos they're noses before that were horrid IMO.) Too bad their livery always fell a bit short. It wasn't ugly, but always a tad boring.

Now I'm just hoping Ferrari nailed it this year. The last properly good looking car from the Scuderia was their 2008 challenger.

Christ, the Force India gets worse and worse, the longer I stare at it.

Some cars grow on you, but this thing is properly disgusting.
They've combined the ugly stepped nose of 2012 with the gentleman sausage noses from 2014... It's so bad.

To make up for that disgusting Force India, just seen this on Twitter, and I have no idea if it's a real image or not (probably not), but I like it.

No way that's real, but if there's small chance it is then its awesome. They are using a Orange logo for their young driver programme, but that could just be trolling. 

It hasn't got the 2017 spec front or rear wing, so it's obviously not real.

Well rumour is the livery is gonna be mostly orange and white, and I'm hoping that's true! Only 2 days to find out though :)

Really looking forward to the Merc tomorrow now though after how poop to FI was.

Looks like the crash helmets are going to be the best part of the Force India. I especially like Ocon's, looks proper mean.

Shame he chose one so similar to his normal design.

There's a bunch here that look way way nicer than the one he went for. http://media.f1i.com/seasons/19359-quelle-decoration-pour-le-casque-de-hamilton-cette-annee.html

Somehow Force India have managed to f*ck up the livery, shark fin and nose all in one go. Terrible.

I don't think it matters what any of them look like,  every single one are ruined by the stupid shark fins. It's the kind of ridiculous thing boy racers would stick on their cars... Or it makes an F1 car look like an estate car rather than a compact single seater. 

Silverstone in the wet, this is what the cars will look like

Sauber have done a filming day with the new car, looks great on track :) And the gap in the white along the sidepod makes more sense now with the drivers number placed there.

Really? I think it's a bit of a mess tbh, way too much going on. Shame, because I saw a lot of really awesome designs from his competition which he could've chosen from. 

So far the Sauber is easily the best looking car for me. Really dig the blue and gold combo.

Vettelfan, Vettel, the guy who goes OTT especially when changing helmet designs each race was fine :p

Tbf to Seb, Vettel's helmet looks a lot better than this colorful mess Lewis has chosen. I much prefer his 2016 helmet, but nothing beats his early McLaren helmets. Simple yet easily recognizable. The new one looks like a mental patient was given the chance to design a helmet.

Taste is subjective, I love it, just like you crazy people that think the shark fins look good ;)
