Test sessions aren't too far away and Caterham unveiled their new car today.

20 races, 12 teams and 24 drivers. HRT's second driver is still unknown. Kimi Räikkönen makes comeback in Lotus.


Caterham CT01.

Probably not going bother watching this season as us UK viewers are getting shafted on live coverage. I just can't watch F1 unless it's live... shame, last season was the best in years.

Kubica with a re-broken leg after slipping on some ice. Wonder if he'll ever drive an F1 car again. Another Senna in a Williams, replacing another useless Brazilian. Both the useless Toro Rosso kids dumped for motivated professionals. Kimi actually being motivated and knowledgeable to the team?!? Sutil kicked out of Force India so he won't be missed when he goes to jail...it's gonna be a lovely season.

That Caterham looks like a homemade stretch limo version of a real racecar.

Apparently the new rules mean that majority will be using similar nose.

Kinda off topic, but I think I'm thinking of making a WRC 2012 thread, but I think I'm the only person that watches it? I unfortunetly don't have the priviledge of watching it live, but I do watch footage later that day or the next day on youtube because there's so many people that upload vids.
Would anyone be interested?

I'm interested, but cant watch it live either. Same problem with F1 for me.

Still following results and wathich F1 at pub from time to time (or if I'm visiting someone who has paid for F1). Rally ftw!

McLaren doesnt have it, or if it has, it's not very visible.

It turns out the new regulations require a lower nose this year: http://scarbsf1.**************/2011/1...t-regulations/

It looks like McLaren have chosen to keep the whole front of the car lower so they have no step in the nose, should be interesting to see which design provides the better aerodynamics.

Goddamnit, I'm going to have to watch this season afterall

Same here, i can't believe they sold out to Sky, that evil dwarf C**T totally disregarding the Concorde Agreement and then justifying it by blaming it on the BBC.

I think it's a disgrace. The whole thing is ridiculous, half the races? I mean what's the point in doing that? What if the BBC said no, all or nothing. Sky can't get the whole lot as far as i know anyway.

Ah well, if i catch a race on the BBC i'll watch it but i'm not going to be looking for them like i used to. No way am i paying for Sky Sports just for F1, i've had Sky Sports before, waste of money cause i never watch it.

i'm curious to see the new front wing and diffuser designs. but being these are just pre-season testings, i doubt any of the teams will run with their in-season designs.

also, i thought new regulations require exhausts to be routed high and out the back. but from these pics, i don't see any of that.

I don't see how you could tell. I don't know about routed high but there will be no blown diffusers, that's for sure and the teams will not be realising pictures of the back end. Some of the teams get guys to stands at the back of the cars to stop the camera's showing the back end, Ferrari do it all the time.
