Chilling Best and worst looking F1 cars

What in your opinion are the best looking and worts looking F1 cars ever made.

My best looking goes to the Ferrari 641, the worst looking goes to the March 721-3

Pictures appreciated.

Best.... Ferrari 156 shark nose, as a kid my eyes nearly popped out as I ran to get my model from the shop. Worst.... Williams FW08-6W, six wheels and looked like a truck.

Hi Smon I read one or two of your replies to someone who had a gear problem, On my way to work this morning on releasing the clitch pedal it stuck to the ground, I then proceeded to pull it manualy with my hand back in position. Now it is stuck and does not want to go down. Any advice?? or who I can ask?
Your help would be much appreciated.

In my mind, there is no such thing as an ugly F1 car. It's function over form and that is always beautiful.

Sounds like you need either a new slave cylinder or new master cylinder.

I would guess that it was the mastr cylinder, as when the slave fails you usually end up with fluid loss and puddles.

The F1 car looks good to the only people who are crazy about racing and those are sophisticated about luxury look never likes it. But I love F1 cars, they are totally optimized for speed and power.

I have to agree that the Ferrari 641 is one of the best looking,certainly of the modern era anyway.

As for the ugliest,pretty much all of this years grid with the 'stepped nose',or maybe that awful Williams with the 'walrus' nose.....

Since they grew wings few have looked as good as the 60's cars though it helps if they are black and gold, -or red of course!

I think the best looking F1 cars in general were the ones in the 80's and early 90's. They were absolutely beautiful to look at.

Nowadays theyre not so good looking but their aint that bad either especially some of them. Only if you take those stupid noses they made this year

Deffo the Ferrari 641 and probably Williams fw14 the best lookin in my eyes but the ugliest thing i have ever saw in F1 was that Mclaren that Mansell couldn't fit his arse inside in 1995

Best looking was the Lotus 79. I agree with the March 721-3 as the worst although I never liked the Matra MS120 - looked blotted, especially when it was parked next to a Lotus 72.

Yes, but balls were bigger in those days! As lips got stiffer and moral fibre increased, mens genitalia increased in size. There are pictures of JC (no coincidence with the initials) with all four wheels off the ground.

Driving with feel, with passion, with skill, with one hand on the stick and one on the wheel, sliding the car and being at one with the machine AND the road is why we have Alfas!

Absolutely. If something went wrong - you died immediately
