I am in no way a zealot about cycling!

Cycling helmets are ABSOLUTE HARAM!

Wouldn't it be even more effective if the whole car was asphalt colored (serious but stupid question)?

You could still see details clearly, the point with dazzle camo is that there's so many random bits of lines and shapes going everywhere it's difficult to tell which bits are actually features of the thing and which bits are just paint.

I can't wait for some neckbeard to post the results of his analysis of the Red Bull paint scheme. He will inform us that he has found a code within all the lines and symbols which clearly states that McLaren will be red and white at the first race and Suzie Wolff has a vagina.

I enjoy metal because of its dark, creepy, intense aesthetic.



The only time Seb will be overtaking a Mercedes this season

Also, I wish Red Bull would keep using that livery after the tests because I like it a lot more than their regular one.

Edit - Seriously can someone suggest to Bernie that we just award it to Lewis before the season starts and force every team to use their early 2016 designs.

McLaren are the bacon kings, last year it was special rear suspension arms, the year before it was an upside down spring. But time they get to Australia they are back to their normal lack of pace.

LOL and Fernando is poodling around in his McLaren tractor, wondering where it all went wrong.

Joking aside, I wouldn't worry too much. Pirelli said they'd be much faster this year and I'm sure times will continue to tumble.

Mercedes doing 150ish laps is a bit ominous, but the times look closer this year across the top runners, which is encouraging. There were big gaps this time last year.

Ok that sounds better than the previous vid, but it sounds so god drat alien compared to the other engines. Have Honda built an engine to the right specs as it sounds more 'rough' like the old V8's not like the other V6's at all.
