With one official test over, Lotus is extremely happy, Ferrari is underwhelmed and all of the cars look hideous. The only cars that don’t look horrible are the Mercedes, the Marussia and the HRT. However, all three of those teams were either running last year’s car, or didn’t show up to the test because their car wasn’t ready (Marussia in that case). Here then is how some of the cars look in action shots. Honestly, this season will be great for the F1 faithful who are blind, and horrible for those of us who have access to the HD feed. My eyes are already crying tears of blood from the pain!

This was found on the Top Gear blog via their Twitter page and I have to say that I find it amazing that this stuff can be done. Whoever was the first person to leave their camera lens open for a long time and run around with a source of light to create wire frames and words and pictures is a genius. Here is what one artist created. I believe I have all the vehicles correctly identified, but the artist obviously loves the work from the boys over in Woking at McLaren. I sort of find it odd that he left out any sort of Ferrari or Lamborghini, but its amazing nonetheless. Check out the light show below.
Mercedes McLaren SLR
Mercedes AMG SLS
Clarkson, May, Hammond and gWhiz
Pagani Zonda R
Absolutely spectacular don’t you think? And as a reminder, again, new Top Gear at the end of July!
