I think the US is dumb for not using Celsius

So if I pay for half of McLaren's budget, I can make the car any color I want? Baby poo poo gold and neon pink.

It was a pornography store. I was buying pornography.

I want to know how Ron justifies having more of a 'historical association' with dayglo red than anything else, and then further to that, why they proceed to put gently caress all of it on the car.

What did you do that for?

More worryingly, hasn't Ron effectively admitted that F1 is spending well outside of its means?

Why don't Mclaren's sponsors go to a team that will actually display their logo visibly on the car?

I like how Lauda never let decent taste dictate his wardrobe, whether in the 1970s or 2010s.
I suppose the same could be said of Hamilton, minus the 1970s part.

It does look pretty good, but it obscures the sponsor logos somewhat. So it won't happen.

Testing so far:

There's no more spare noses at RBR atm so Kavyat is driving around without one because he broke his.

Lewis Hamilton is doing a million laps today.

Gay Lotus started, did like three laps and is already better than McLaren Honda, which is stuffed again today.

Horny Horner said the final livery would be "striking", so I expect it to look exactly the same as last year's.

they should just use hornyhorner.jpg as their livery imo

I know there will be a rational explanation for it, but how does a team of that size turn up to testing with only one wing? It's not like the testing was a last minute decision, it's been planned for months.

Because their only other wing was destroyed in the FIA crash test just a few days prior. They didn't have time to fabricate another one to specs yet.

craig scarborough did a video series on youtube with peter windsor where he analyzes all the new chassis. apparently the sauber is basically just their 2014 car with the simplest, cheapest nose that fits the new regulations. that's p sad.
