Well, the thing is horrible as it is now, but it's just a concept. I'm sure the teams will come with better solutions next year, along with subtle flips and flaps that we can't imagine now how could be fitted.

Front and rear wings seems too unpractical at the moment. In no way they'll be one-piece parts as are in the concept. The sides of the headrest are incredibly bulky, something that goes against any aerodynamic sense. I think that the flat nose will be a focus of much reinterpretations, too.

For a long time I was wondering why F1 insisted with the flat bottom, if almost all the other formulas had adopted some form of inverted sidepod wings. Well, they finally are going for it, but why the big front wing? I don't like the wheelcaps, too. The 18 inch wheels looks good in the F2 cars, why to cover them in F1?

From a modeling perspective, NO COMPLEX BARGEBOARDS, that's the best thing!! For how much time, that's the question....

Don't think the cars will look exactly like it, but if it helps overtaking and eventually compacts the grid thats good. People have gotten too used to having a single dominate car that they've forgotten what real battles looked like.

HUGE improvement over the FUGLY top fuel dragsters they're running now that look like they were drawn by a 5 year old.

Guess it's all relative.

Compared to 2014 car, then it's a beauty :D

Beauty-wise, ANYTHING is an improvement over the past 10 years. A lot of people are complaining that this looks "too Indy". It doesn't really, and so what if it did?

I don't care as long as the racing product is good and it sticks to the character of f-1. We already have indy car and nascar so I don't want f-1 to become like them. Indy car is really good now but we have that so we don't need a copy. Nascar is a joke so I don't want to see that.

Change is good. That’s all I will say.
