    Ugh, I like the shark fin and T-Wing and don't like the look of the Halo, but I still had to vote for the 2018 car. The extra aero elements and finesse of them gets it for me, as well as the blue rear wing endplate insides. The wider nose also looks better IMO.

    The 2017 STR12 is, for me, unquestionably the best looking formula car of the past decade. It's gorgeous. I was totally taken aback with the livery which makes it stand out from the senior team and in of itself is a very striking, very colourful affair. The nose and general forward section of the STR12 is so much better looking than anything of the last 5-10 years.

    The STR13 is let down by its stubby penis nose and the halo.

    The only real downside of the STR12 is that Red Bull Cola is a disgusting drink which should be outlawed by the Geneva convention.

    If Toro Rosso hadn’t switched to the thumb nose for 2018, it would have easily won this. Those who claim they notice the halo are just making it up. The 18 car is better in every way except the lack of a shark fin and thumb nose. Unfortunately those result in the 17 car taking this win for me

    Yep, clearly an illusion

    2017 wins it hands down for me due to the better looking nose, no halo, and a slight edge on the livery.

    Apologies for the delay; a combination of Easter, illness and then internet failure.

    The Toro Rosso STR12 goes through to the final. :tup:
