The season is about to start soon, the cars will be unvailed, and the drivers will be announced.
Here is a nice place to talk about this stuff.

I thinks he's awesome. Absolutely love the guy. I was rooting for him from the moment he started driving for Torro Rosso.

We are witnessing a true great in the making. There are plenty of those who come with lots of press support and partisan nonsense to make them look good but they have all faltered and then when the fat lady stopped singing its always cool and racey Vettel getting the job done.

Sure, the usual like Alonso, Hamilton and so on.

Schumacher and Häkkinen when he was still kicking it of course. To be honest, I'm not following that closely. Still a fascinating sport though.

One reason I like Vettel is for where he comes from. The town he grew up is not that far away from Frankfurt.

I don't really like Alonso, or Hamilton.
I think that Alonso is a douche. And he certainly is a sore loser. He's geting a bit better over past three years, but still.

And Hamilton is too pretentious. He once said, that they give hin punishents and warnings a lot because he is black. So that is why i don't like him - because he's black.

Ah, well. I just mentioned some other names because of the "who else I know by name". I try to check on other Germans like Rosberg. And I'd like to see more from the new track in Texas and Americans actually do better overall. ;D

I kind of always root for Kobayashi too because my mother is half Japanese.

But yeah, I don't actually get wind of most of the other driver's stuff like what those people say and how their image is being affected.

If they did that then Hungary 2007 repeats with higher volume.

Yeah saw the pics immediately when they were launched.

Here is the condensed version of the changes I can see right off the bat.

1) front suspension geometry changes, raised to allow more air flow the rear and diffuser for more boundary charge with exhaust heating.

2) Side pods more tapered, which means cooling arrangements has been changed. They mostly moved it along the engine cover zone to keep CoG change minimal.

3) Exhausts, they are now following redbull, ferrari, mclaren from last year's progress, only this won't be whats raced at the first race come march, they will upgrade it much further. Too many spying eyes out there to show their full hand.

4) Rear suspension still pull-rod, which is good for rear tyre warm up but angles changed to be increase loading on tyres as that was their main weakness last year, too kind on tyres and not enough warm up.

5) Air pressure valves located on the sides of inlet for engine air scooper. This will work in tandem with the assist free rear wing stall system they call the Passive DDRS.

6) Current Diffuser is just a placeholder, that diffuser they have is not the real one they plan to race. Front end changes directly affect rear end air flow along with new exhausts and body work they have incorporated. Secrets as usual during this phase.

They have a lower cross-section from the looks of things, helps increase straightline speeds. Good first rollout, but all depends on what the other big boys have to show, so far so good for Kimi's title chances.
