I am going to be very recent with my vote for most attractive, but my favourite car is the 2003 Williams BMW: the FW25. An elegant, simple, beautifully liveried car that won races. However, there are lots of cars from all eras that run it close. Just can't be arsed listing them.

Most boring car. It's hard to say. Most of the modern cars are quite dull when you think of them in terms of major innovation and all that. But they all have interesting features, it's just the windows for these features grow ever smaller.

I just cannot give an entry for boring.

Now, in terms of that most wonderfully subjective thing of beauty.... I cannot say there is one that is much better than the rest...

There are the Ferraris of the 50's; the Tyrells of the early 70's; the Lotus' of the Clark era..... I would rate the Ferraris/Mclaren of the last 4 years as rather attractive. I dunno, there are so many more than this......lots of different cars from different times....

If forced to pick one.... I would find it hard to look beyond the Lotus 25.

Most attractive cars:

Ferrari 412T2; Sauber C13 (before the Swatch sponsorship and the head protection); Jordan 191.

Despite the obvious unpleasant associations, I still think the Williams FW16 was a fine looking car.

Most boring car: I can't think of any cars that I can't remember, which can't be that boring...

A car that has always stuck in my mind was the 1998 Tyrell 026, it was very attractive and had a great livery.

One of the most boring looking F1 cars (if there is such a thing!!) was the Williams FW20. It had a really boring livery.

DKGandBH has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
From a sponsorship point of view
The best looking ones are up the front of the grid.
The worst ones are not.

From my point of view
I like the wingless/sponsorshipless varieties
Anything with a winglet (WTFIT) comes at the bottom.

All the John Player Special sponsored Lotus' were gorgious, but preferably with the bright yellow helmet of Senna in it.

One of the worst cars, the brabham from the mid eighties with those really small side pods...

I liked the 1992-1993 Williams, the 1994 one I initially hated, but have grown too love.

The 1991 Ferrari was great, aswell as the 94 model, and the Bennetton from 92-93 was something I liked aswell, also the 1990 era one I enjoyed aswell mmmm...primary colours!

And the Jordan from '93.

Ooh! and the Larrouse from 93 was it? I'm not sure if it was good, but purple, yellow and red sure stands out!
