It gives me goose bumps every time.  I am so excited for tomorrow.  Did I mention that?

(More  pictures here, but why would you want them?)

Fernando Alonso is supposed to win a world championship in that?  Are you kidding me?

The rear wing looks pretty cool, very much like the McLaren wing, but what is up with the front?  The nose is so square and awful.  And the front wing looks like a cheap nasty afterthought cobbled together at the last minute.  All I can say is it better be faster than it looks.
