Looks like all the teams have put their 'shark fins' to good use. Interested to see what it looks like on track, and on TV.

Think they were forced to by new mid-season regulation changes, number on the nose also increases in size aprox 30%.

I must admit that I have no problem at all with the shark fins, other than they make the cars even more prone to understeer.
So let us say I have no problem with the look of the shark fins!

Looks like the Mclaren drivers will have to spend the rest of the season starting from the back of the grid at the rate those motors seem to be falling apart.

Where have Force India put the drivers names? I can't see them on the cars. The McLaren is the best positioning that I've seen, really clear.

It's a shame for Alonso and the home GP fans. What a waste.

I enjoy the Catalunya Circuit for the most part. Looking forward to this one.

Embarassing, that's what it is. Maybe he should consider the retirement.

From F1, for sure, if there is nothing for him other than McLaren. There are many years of top racing left for Fernando.
