McLaren launch... in about 30mins from now! 10:30GMT

http://www.youtube.com/user/OfficialMcLarenVids?v=SXlbiqVZ4Q8

 

EDIT ~ Really cool intro with a parade of a bunch of their old championship-winning cars... plus a great Bruce McLaren tribute video.

 

Pull-rod front suspension (like Ferrari last season), new sidepods, looks like a bigger undercut at the rear of the car...

The hint of red and blue look out of place, IMO. But that is a nice shade of yellow, indeed.

He's always had that bit of red/blue so it's nothing too out of the ordinary...

Anyway... Sauber.

New grey livery looks great IMO.

From that side-angle, the Sauber nose looks pretty low (not as high as the others), so I guess the "step" isn't that prominent. 

 

IMO, one of the best-looking cars thus far!  And those narrow sidepods!

^ Indeed F1 cockpits are super-tight, but I think that pic distorts it a bit. You also need to take into account that the headrest-bit surrounding the helmet and arms is removable.

 

Headrest...

Minus the headrest.

By the way I like Checo's helmet livery, I love the Aztec symbols around the back of the helmet smokin.gif

Lewis' helmet livery looks nice as well.

Speaking of livery, Sauber killed the competition. WOW!!! nthat.gif

Why must Ferrari make the name of their car so confusing? alien.gif

Natalie Pinkham + Leona Lewis=

I would let both of them have my seed glasses.gifembarassed.gif

Nico's helmet has a silver patch on the Mercedes logo in the front. His helmet is also a brighter yellow. Other than that there's not much of a difference.

Looks like Natalie didn't even adjust the seat; her feet were barely touching the pedals. laugh.gif She was the fastest with the wheel gun during the pit challenge, though. pimp.gif

Yeah I know the headrest is removable, but it seems the Merc has a different cut to it, compared to other cars (like Lewis in the McLaren then). More elongated, legs more exposed, but barely enough room to fit your hands through to steer the car.

And I think that was Nico driving the car. You'll know it's Lewis when there are car parts flying somewhere. laugh.gif

1st pic was Nico, 2nd was Lewis... wink.gif

 

Haha, yeah Lewis has more of a "maize" shade to it while Nico's is more "tour yellow"? laugh.gif

 

Point is... trying to differentiate them on a standard-def TV feed will not be fun... tongue.gif

at some point, one of them (LH/Nico) has to give up that color and switch to pink or solar red to get that SB or Yeezy effect laugh.gif

Georie is bad too but i'll take Lee Mckenzie any day! im glad that jake is out. i always thought he's better hosting a talent show or something laugh.gif though, putting to many former drivers on the commentary is kinda redundant. its almost one dimensional and their comments are almost the same, unlike the mix of DC plus Martin and Eddie then Jake was perfect! the flow of their discussion is free flowing unlike with Sky, i felt Johnny, Damon and Martin is a bit stiff, kind too serious at times
post #1106 of 2559
Honestly, I like both of BBC and Sky F1's coverage of the Grands Prix, but I have to say I'm partial to the Sky F1 coverage, since they seem to be more entertaining and in-depth (not to mention, easier on the eyes nerd.gif). Lee McKenzie is appreciated, though. smokin.gif Definitely like Martin's Grid Walk segment. I find Damon Hill rather dull for presentation, though. If he switched places with David Coulthard, Sky F1 would be hard to beat. Both of them definitely made me appreciate Formula One. And they are really in-depth with the McLaren team / Martin Whitmarsh (which I appreciate... sort of. Lol.) and Christian Horner! Anthony Davidson and Alan McNish give good insight as well. With that said, both coverages are easily much better than the presentation ESPN Star Sports is airing on cable over here. I don't think I've even caught a race on cable last season. They don't show Laker games much over here either nowadays. Maybe it's time to cut off the cable subscription, at least in my part of the house. laugh.gif

Interesting bit about a driver's crash helmet.

Nothing to worry about in terms of failures and or other issues.  It's the first day... better to get those issues out of the way now than layer.

 

I like the livery of the Caterham...

im just browsing the article, checkin the pics and i thought oh, so Jaguar is comin back!? smokin.gif then when i read it ahh... its Caterham laugh.gif

@zk

back in the day, the coverage of STAR was still tolerable. back when Murray was still doing the commentary. they had a very few gaps and thats it and their pre race shows were informative and entertaining though all is pre recorded. now a days i only watch it for replays.
post #1110 of 2559

^ Forgot to comment on that, but while I like the BBC presentation-team of Jake, DC & EJ, with the Sky comm team of Crofty and Martin, but really both BBC and Sky are miles better than our Star Sports team of Steve Slater and some other color-analyst. The overall package in the UK is just better. Not to say that Star Sports is "poor", but it helps when you have dedicated production teams at every GP. Ant, McNish & Karun are all fine commentators too.

 

I like Lee, but Natalie all the way!  Holly Samos is joining the BBC party this season so that should be interesting. I've only seen her work on tech-shows.

 

Martin's Gridwalks are the highlight!

 

EDIT ~ Checooooo.
