The sounds leaves me un-impressed, and I'd rather see it turning some laps on a track, but I think the car looks good. Hopefully they'll put on some good racing.

Looks like a normal formula car. I think that, just as in TTX (electric bike racing), designers are going to take some time getting their heads around what is possible when you dump the petrol motor in favor of electric motors. When they do, though, I think this type of forum will porvide a spring bopard for some really clever breakthrough engineering. Just remember what bike won the Pikes Peak races this year!

McLaren MP4-29 - Friday 24th January (Online Presentation)
Mercedes W05 - Tuesday 28th Jaunary (Jerez test 1st day)
Caterham - CT04 - Tuesday 28th Jaunary (Jerez test 1st day) - Assume they'll announce their driver line-up then too.

this just in from Pit Flaps:

Lotus to spend first test getting to the bottom of this Wonga quote

January 6th, 2014 | Author: admin
Lotus are to sit out the first official F1 test in order to fully understand the terms of this Wonga loan.
The Enstone squad made the announcement as backroom boffins grappled with the difference between APR and EAPR, compound interest and amortization; in so doing momentarily distracting them such that they had to start the whole process all over again.
Head of F1s Titanic re-enactment display team, Eric Boullier said, this [Jerez] test is a crucial first step for any team serious about its 2014 championship ambitions.
The value of some F1 brands can go down as well as up
But on the other hand, some of the terms and conditions on this loan are really, really hard to understand.
I mean: is this rate the effective APR or is it the compound rate? Do we pay back the loan plus the lending rate or is it the simple rate minus the opportunity cost of borrowing? he pleaded.
The cash strapped outfit revealed the new financial arrangements on its website in a message entitled, Oh God, oh God how the fuck are we going to pay for all of this; oh Christing-fuck all these people have families and bills to pay; oh Jesus Christing fucking hell has it really come to this?
Your team may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your loan. We reserve the right to come round to your house in the middle of the night with a claw hammer if you do not keep up repayments on your loan.
We do not feel pity, we do not feel remorse and we absolutely will not stop until you have paid. Have a nice day, the winsome puppet-fronted loans company added.

in today's bizarre news:

Quote:
Was this a case of a text message too far? Former Formula One driver, Northern Irishman Eddie Irvine, was this morning handed a six-month prison sentence for his part in a nightclub brawl in Milan in December 2008.
Also sentenced by judge Marco Formentin was the other protagonist in the brawl, namely Gabriele Moratti, son of former Milan mayor and education minister, Letizia Moratti.
Given that todays sentences will almost certainly be appealed, legal experts are already predicting the case will fall foul of the statute of limitations, due to expire at the end of 2015, when the case is declared null and void.
For that reason, it seems highly unlikely that either man will actually serve time. Mr Moratti was present in court this morning for the sentence, whilst Mr Irvine was not.
Witnesses in court have claimed the reason for the fight between the two was a text message sent by Mr Irvine to an ex-girlfriend of Mr Moratti.
When Mr Moratti came across Mr Irvine in the Holywood nightclub, a brief scuffle developed between them. Mr Irvine claimed he was hit from behind by Mr Moratti and that he suffered damage to an ear. After the incident, both men subsequently sued one another for assault and battery.
Corriere Della Sera Online also reported today that after the incident, Mr Irvine received threatening phone calls in his Milan hotel from someone in the Moratti entourage.
Other media sources carried reports today claiming Mr Irvines legal team had tried, in vain, to reach some form of out-of-court agreement in order to halt the proceedings.
As it is, whatever happens to both Mr Irvine and Mr Moratti, the case does not end here, since Judge Formentin has passed on the case records to the public prosecutors office. It is believed the judge will ask prosecutors to look into the possibility that some of the witnesses called by the Moratti defence team committed perjury.
Gabriele Moratti is not new to controversy. In April of last year, he paid a 49,000 fine for an illegal renovation of a warehouse in the Milanese suburbs, a building that he had converted into a luxury Batman Residence.
Eddie Irvine was a Formula One driver from 1993 to 2001, driving for the Jordan, Ferrari and Jaguar teams. His best season was probably that of 1999 when he finished second behind a Finn, Mika Hakkinen, in the drivers championship, having started the last Grand Prix of that season four points ahead of his rival.
