Crusty, just forget comparing next years looks to the beauty of a car the Ferrari F310 of 1996 was.
The chassis height will remain the same as this year. Which means that we, most likely, will see the stepped nose including the hook nose.
It took me a while to get used to the small rear wings, the ridiculous wide front wings whom wil disappear next season (jeeej!!) and the stepped nose. Im sure the cars of next season will grow on me in a while.
I just hope we will see more roads that lead to Rome. see more variations on this design. Thats why I loved the F310 so much. It had an oldschool low nose at the start of the season. All the others went with the more efficient high nose concept. Eventually evolving in the zero keel concept, which I do not see next season as big of an influence anymore since the low noses. Maybe we will see some beautiful designs. Maybe they will be ugly. We will see it by the end of january 2014.
