    I can’t wait! And hopefully there won’t be too many “anteater nose” looking alike. I never got used to the previous generation of high noses and I know another anti-aestetic look would mean another turn off for the sport. It’s incredible we have to look far in the past to find real captivating and harmonious design and proportions. Anyway let’s hope these new regulations will bring back the drivers in the centre of the action. Let’s also hope the FIA allowed Pirelli to make their tires last longer as what we’ve seen in the last two years was really not necessary, pointless. May the best bring home the championship!
