Hearing that shark fins are returning for 2017 reminds me of how @#$%& off I am that F-ducts are banned.
They were probably the most interesting and clever bit of innovation in F1 car design since the Brabham BT46B. Ground effect cars, double-decker diffusers, fancy electronics, EBD's all pale in comparison (even though they may have brought more performance, they are not nearly as interesting or clever in my opinion).
That was a great quote, sums it up. They had the beautiful shape ruined by this and that tacked on. The 2010 cars looked great, with the Le Mans esque fins, longer chassis ('09 cars looked too squashed, even though the Brawn and Toyota made it look good), and more delicate and smooth noses. I loved the 2010 Sauber for the way the tip of the nose stuck out so long (and the lack of sponsors).
