Well, it's out, ahead of most of the competition, and doesn't that just
lay a hot poker to some of your pallid plush bottoms...

"Ferrari has merely stolen the Williams' design and painted it red"

I love this one...  Like Williams invented/introduced the semi-auto gearbox,
telemetry,  pushrod suspensions, monocoques, carbon fiber, carbon-carbon,
stressed engines, raised noses and just about everything else they use.
(Mitchell has elsewhere done his usual excellent job of refuting the theft of
FW18 visual elements canard, I will not repeat it here.)
"Theft"..., is there no honor among thieves ?

"Marborello"/"Sellouts"

God forbid Ferrari put a sponsor's trademark on the car the sponsor supports...
That is soooo much more unseemly than say ... turning the WHOLE ***ING CAR
into a moving billboard, such as McLaren has (Oh, I forget, they're understated British...)
or plastering the car with INNUMERABLE and maddenignly irritatingly multisized logos,
such as ROTHMAN's williams RENAULT do... (Again I forget:  It was Williams who
invented F1...) Some nitwit has actually decided that the MARLBORO mclaren MERCEDES
paint scheme was more understated or dignified !  And it wasn't JBG !

"Pink", "Marlboro Orange"

The car is NOT pink, nor is it "Marlboro Orange".  You are experiencing a visual
distortion easily chargeable to digital cameras.  Now, knock it off!

The F 310 B doesn't look like some recent Ferrari designs, it looks much more like a
conventional late-'90s F1 car.  Sooo, the same people who lambasted last years car for
being unconventional and unique are now claiming the theft of Williams' design.  
And, imagine, not one JBG post in the bunch:  Unbelievable.

Oohhh, I feel soooo much better...

Well, this describes all of the Ferraris in IMSA WSC...

Yes, it was a lot nicer when they were New Zealanders, with Bruce
McLaren overseeing it all, and cars like the M7A being painted a nice,
unadorned butterscotch orange (like the Can-Am cars), wasn't it?
