Since the Federation Internationale de L’Automobile (FIA) declared war on aero packages in a desperate, and very politically correct and non-confrontational attempt to return Formula One (F1) racing to, well, racing, the cars have lost a great deal of the fluid beauty that used to make young boys grab their private parts with delight.
Not that the new bunch of cars are elephant-man type ugly, but they have certainly surrendered aesthetics to function. Gone are the days when the cars were designed by Marlboro Men, with the sole intention creating something that would help separate women from their underwear at parties.
Now the cars are designed by pimply faced youths whose bodies crave sunlight and who have intimate knowledge of fluid dynamics and computer modeling and their idea of beauty revolves around a flawless subroutine and terahertz processor speeds.
As uninspiring as these modern cars are, there has been much worse thrust upon the F1-loving public. Witness, the 10 ugliest F1 cars in history.
