Hi, Here are the photos of the 2014 F1 Mclaren and Lotus cars. More ugly
noses showing up in the new body designs. Regards

The nose of the Lotus reminds me of that thingy that golfers use to mess with the turf.

Lotus reminds me of the walrus nose on the old BMW Williams

Hi, Lotus are calling it the "Tuning Fork" nose. All I can say is that they have ruined the looks of the car. Regards
Norman
PS, Maybe they should call it "Golf Turf Fixer" nose

The McLaren nose I can live with...it doesn't look half bad from the side and oblique angle. The Lotus...man that is just ugly! The pic from the top make it look like the 2 sides to the fork were uneven too.

That's deliberate. The rules mean it can only have one nose with a minimum cross section. The right hand section is officially the nose, the left hand section is officially just a wing mount. Typical F1 rule bending by meeting the exact wording of the rulebook.

In SCCA, we have what they call "a tortured interpretation of the rule". Doing so will usually just get you in trouble. I guess F1 isn't subject to such.

It seems like the cars are getting uglier each year. I thought the introduction of the stepped nose was bad...now it looks like most will have a reservoir tip or a pickle fork nose like the Lotus.

Hoping that Adrian Newey can pull off what the others can't seem to this year. A functional, yet classy look.
