I think the VJM07 look quite nice from that angle. It also looks like the rear wing is lower too than it has been for recent years...I like that...I think they look better lower.

Apparently a penis nose is part of the Williams traditional heritage.

Agreed. And thanks to Cyril Abiteboul, I no longer see it as a penis nose.

If that happens. Quite a big change to happen so close to the new season.

I didn't think Martin Whitmarsh has done a bad job. If the car is rubbish. There isn't much he can do about that.

 

This season is going to be interesting... for about 3 races before it becomes clear Red Bull/Vettel are going to walk it.

... unless either the Renault engine or the RB10 chassis turn out to be a dud. You never know in a season with as many new regulations as the upcoming one.
