Damn, I love how these 2017 cars look like (I don't mind thumb noses or nicely done shark fins, whale tails can fuck off, though), it's everything I expected from new rules:
Can't wait for tomorrow
Am I reading to much into Toro Rosso's ability to ape the Mercedes nose and what it means for RB's design? If Toro Rosso can get a merc style nose then surely RB could as well but have opted for the holy nozzle instead.
That's a Red Bull Cola can alright. How can that nose be so smooth?
I must say... looks good on track, studio lights did no justice to it. If it's fast i'm sure it will grow on me, hope this is at least a 1997 like season, lots of similarities (3rd year with new engine partner, new completely diferent livery).
I wonder why they don't sell the cola in America. We get a rainbow of their flavors, but I want what I can't have.
I turned on for the start of the Daytona 500 to catch the inevitable starting wreck. They're separating it out into 3 races, lol. What is this shit? It's actually the Daytona 150/150/200 I guess. Turns out that's the new format for the entire series! Each race has 2 intermediate stage finishes for points followed by a regrid and restart. So the novelty idea of an endurance-style race is even gone.
A random aside, but as a PR stunt the network put a retired driver in the pace car for some in-car shenanigan talk. He's not wearing a helmet.
that Torro Rosso looks amazing, serious lack of sponsors though
