    OK, so Wikipedia is of help here: List of Formula One constructors - Wikipedia

    This list considered a team to have ceased to exist if they have ceased operating under that name - so if they have been bought out, (e.g. Jordan), they would have appeared to have disappeared, and replaced by a different team...

    • 2010-2016 - 7 team names have disappeared
    • 2000-2009 - 14 team names have disappeared
    • 1990-1999 - 23 team names disappeared
    • 1980-1989 - 12 team names disappeared
    • 1970-1979 - 28 team names disappeared
    • 1960-1969 - 22 team names disappeared
    • 1950-1959 - 23 team names disappeared

    Positives: no fins or silly wings

    Negatives: Halo, dull colour scheme, the nose and the halo.

    A halo is a full circle that hovers over your head with no means of support. That thing is a Thong.

    It seems like they've turned the lights in the room right down as they're slightly embarrassed about what they've made.

    Does this mean that Ferrari will run a 'red thong' and Mercedes a 'silver thong' ??

    Renault are going to hire flavio briatore as a consultant to decide on the colour of their thong, after all, he is the expert.

    I wonder if the colour will make it easier or harder to see "through"?

    They should make it out of glass, it'd be invisible then.

    Williams halo looks awful in white. The indycar aeroscreen still looks like the natural successor as still think its weird we have a safety device with 2 big holes on either side. I thought it was very interesting that haas painted their halo black as i couldnt see it at first as it blended into the background. Almost like they were embarassed

    Also 1 of the journalists had a interested take saying how much it looked like 2017 ferrari

    Due to the rules and computers all the cars will gradually morph into a single design, with the exception of Red Bull; it will be impossible to say whether or not their car is better or worse as they will be using Honda engines.

    The development of F1:

    How the title was won:

    1950's - The fastest driver

    1960's - The fastest driver with the best chassis.

    1970's - The fastest driver with the best chassis and the best aerodynamics.

    1980's - The fastest driver with the best chassis and the best aerodynamics and the most powerful engine.

    1990's - The fastest driver with the best chassis and the best aerodynamics and the most powerful engine and the best electronics.

    2000's - The team with the most influence on FIA regulations.

    2010's - The team with the most money.

    Hmmmm where did it all go wrong?

    Perhaps when enormous companies whose main business was not closed tied to racing but rather they were there for publicity came in.
