      I saw that, and I think it's hilarious.

      In the back of my head, in the place that I keep thoughts to myself, I like to think that hashtag helped Fernando become the meme that allowed that kind of thing to come to market....

      ...But it's the internet, we're all responsible.

      I also can't help thinking that Hamilton is pissed that he didn't think of the emoji app first. He had some snapchat filter last year, but I don't remember ever hearing anyone else talk about it like this.

      Will this help or hurt Mercedes? I'm not a fan of Allison nor his current situation. I don't see how helpful he'll be other than officiating aero changes.

      can you graft an F1 steering wheel on there? at least replace the rabbit/turtle slider with some of those knobs/buttons.

      Still dislike that 2014 remanant little nose (where the "W" is). Otherwise they're looking great. Can't wait to see what the racing will be like with these new cars.

      That looks awesome! The rear wing looks a lot lower in that pick than I thought it would be.
      Williams did a good job. Can't wait to see the other team's cars colors and their interpretations of the new aero rules.

      I see Sauber went all in on the rear fin, that thing is long! Nice color scheme.

      Hamilton said the in his opinion the new cars looked like boats. And that in time the new cars will become "normal" looking like in years past.

      There is a concern form some team principles that the new car body regs will make it hard for drivers to follow/pass and that with the new, bigger tires and more aero down force, the new package has made it even more of a power formula than before. Mercedes will like that for sure. And Red Bull's ace in the hole was it's cars chassis. It will be interesting to see if they can carry that trait over to the new car.

      But it's early yet and until the flag drops, we won't know for sure how it's all going to work out.

      Looking forward to Mercedes, Red Bull and Ferrari's reveals.

      if you blow your budget too soon on those two, I hear Pascal Weedlein can provide some funding if he can get 3rd.
