Alonso: 2014 F1 cars are ugly, “looks are not good enough”


Fernando Alonso admits that it’s a bit of cosmetic surgery that all teams have struggled with aesthetically.

For many, the aesthetics of the cars took a serious hit following the introduction of new technical rules. And the Spaniard believes that the public expects the F1 it competes with cars both powerful and beautiful to watch.

“They are ugly, yeah. We have to be honest with that, you know, with our fans and ourselves first of all.

“So probably we will get used to these new aesthetics, let’s say, but the first moment they are not good enough because people look at Formula One like excellence of motor sport, of aerodynamics, excellence of performance and technology — and when you see those front part of the car, it doesn’t look like all the things we’ve been saying.

“So I think we will find different solutions. I’m sure the engineers are clever enough to make the car fast and also beautiful.”

Double World Champion Fernando Alonso’s quest for a third drivers’ championship title begins in Melbourne on March 16.
