More than Lewis’s turn of pace, more than Jenson’s resurgence, more than Kevin Magnussen’s raw talent or the problems at Red Bull, there was one topic that dominated the first F1 test at Jerez.
Yep, it was the strange look of the cars, specifically those nosecones that resembled, um, futuristic marital aids.
‘Are these the ugliest bunch of F1 cars ever?’ asked some of you. In an attempt to answer, we drew up a list of the biggest Grand Prix mingers in history.
And then you lot got a bit angry, and said we had no idea what we were talking about, and that the 1979 Ensign N179 was actually a Mona Lisa-esque stunner. Apparently this whole ‘beauty’ thing is rather subjective.
So now’s your opportunity to turn it back on us. We want you to tell us the prettiest and finest looking F1 cars from history. As a prompter, we’ve included some to get you started. And none of them have a nosecone that will feature in Ann Summers’ upcoming Easter collection…
