Help us Find the perfect buzzword for these “new look” F1 cars

We’ve had a huge response from readers about these new look 2014 F1 cars, with getting on for 1,000 comments over the weekend.

And one noticeable strand of comment has been fans trying to figure out what the unusual noses on these cars look like. The right buzzword to describe this new look design is something F1 commentators and media will be desperately searching for ahead of the new season, so we’d like to throw them a lifeline by asking fans to come up with a new buzzword for the F1 noses.

Here are a few of the suggestions we’ve had for lookalikes along with a few of our own…

Dustbuster
Kenneth M’boy says: “The Ferrari looks like a Dustbuster, Dyson sponsorship going begging there, Luca”


Cartoon characters
Cyril Sneer, a character from The Raccoons cartoon series has been suggested as a dead ringer for one or two of the cars.

Another suggestion from Kenneth M’boy: “I always think of Jughead from Archie comics when I see that image of the McLaren.

Mammal lookalikes
The good old Anteater is a name that has cropped up on numerous occasions in the last few days, for obvious reasons.

Another popular suggestion has been the Bottle Nose Dolphin, which does bear more than a passing resemblance to the new Williams.

A few of our own

Looking at the new McLaren MP4-29, we think that it is a dead ringer for that popular comic actor from the Carry On films of the 1960s and ’70s, Kenneth Williams. Separated at birth?

Meanwhile, the Lotus E22 has prompted a few walrus comparisons but we reckon the front end bears a startling resemblance to a tuning fork laid flat.

And in terms of anteaters, we’re going for the specific in the case of the Ferrari and choosing the Aardvark from the late-’60s TV cartoon, The Ant and the Aardvark. Just change blue to red and voilà…

So, what do you reckon TV pundits should be calling this year’s models? Is it the Ferrari Dustbuster or the F14 T Aardvark, the Lotus Walrus or the Tuning Fork? Keep the suggestions coming and we’ll see if we can’t properly christen these new noses.

    I think that the Lotus is following the two pronged approach but the rest could be called the ‘Rostrum”, which is the name of a dolphins nose but is also another name for the podium which I think ties in perfectly.

    The Ferrari is Cyril Sneer, the Williams is Kenneth Williams or Jim Rosenthal or The Count, the Lotus is The Rabbit (think Anne Summers), the McLaren is Alice (the Goon, from Popeye). That said I think they will all evolve from the start of testing so names will have to adjust too.

    Can’t wait to see the Merc and RBR now to see if there is any designs similar across teams or no two the same. Be great to see every car with a different interpretation and the development race that would create.

    Much as the English language itself is constantly reinventing itself so it is
    with Formula One. In that spirit why not
    claim a new meaning for an old and very
    seldom used term? ‘Dynasic’ comes to mind.

    The dynasic cars of the 2014 Formula One season.

    From the Latin terms ‘Dynamica'(Dynamic)
    and ‘Nasus'(Nose).

    Formula One renewing and reinventing the English language? Why not. It surely beats
    twerking our way towards another selfie!

    FIA aren’t as smart as they want us to belive, and it still remains insufficient to prove a cause and effect relationship between safety and this new look. Equivalent with probiotic products, that is.

    I think the buzzword for Ferrari has to be the dust buster. The Ferrari “dust buster” would just sound so cool coming from Brundle’s voice. There may be other buzzwords, but this one just hits it home and all casual fans who don’t know much of the sport will even laugh. No point overcomplicating it by coming up with a cartoon character that only a minority in Britain have watched- and that hardly anyone knows around the globe. No one will find that funny. The Ferrari dust buster or the Lotus walrus are pretty good as they are. The McLaren actually doesn’t look that bad- so we can give them a break 😉

    Lotus can’t be the Walrus, Williams already claimed that one a few years back (for a few races until the nose got blown off – portent for the Lotus) – Maybe LOTUS is no longer “Lots Of Trouble, Usually Serious” but “Lets Own Twin Under Snouts” (best I could think of on spur of moment :( )

    Anyways, I like these designs (apart from the Aardvark – pig ugly front)

    Hello James / Fellow readers,

    If we are looking for a common reference point.

    Then the comic series “Asterix ” would be a perfect fit as all characters ( Most ) hav a large and weird shaped nose, but each different from one another as with this years F1 cars.

    Invite fellow readers to match the characters to the F1 teams.
    A few suggestions are below.

    Asterix — Ferrari
    Obelix —
    Getafix — Mclaren
    Dogmatix — Mercedes ( Roscoe )
    Vitalstatistix — Lotus F1
    Cacafonix —
    Geriatrix — Williams ( Oldest member in the village )
    AntiClimax — Force India ( Always lose out in the climax )
    Fulliautomatix — Redbull
    Semiautomatix —
    Unhygienix —
    BActeria —

    The wiki link to view the description of each characters is given below.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Asterix_characters

    Asterix along with a F1 or 2014 prefix suffix. would be my suggestion.

    James, I think we are solving a wrong problem. Instead of trying to find the right name for something that is ultimately ugly, we should really understand why on earth we have them. People that come up with rules should really see a bigger pictures and understand what effect a certain rule will have. Why to be so short sighted? Sometimes I struggle to understand how a sport so professional and sharp can come with something as disgraceful as this. It is a shame to be a F1 lately…………..

    perhaps we borrow other bastardized terms. Since the front wings have odd bits stuck on them called Winglets, the new ‘safety’ noses have even more awkward bits called Noselets. Or Schnozlets. Or Snotlets. Or Spikelets. Or Drooplets. Or Tusklets. Exact term would depend on the specific car being deprecated.

    F1 media and fans are having a hard time looking past the latest Rhinoplaz Tech. In a sport desperately clinging to the glamour of a romantic and deadly past, a focus on aesthetics is undermining the importance of the revolution taking place under the skin of its 2014 championship contenders.

    When I was stationed in the UK at RAF Upper Heyford, our planes (F-111) were nicknamed the Aardvark. I think that is a reasonable name for the new nose design.

    I like dolphin nose, but looking at some of the cars, that would be an insult to such an intelligent mamal.

    I can’t help think of the muppet ‘Beaker’ when I look at the new noses. In it’s favor, there is no inuendo so it’s fine for general audience and it rolls off the tongue.

    I was thinking if some team has the idea of a disposable nose. In the warm-up lap some car would crash into the back of his teammate to castrate / get rid of the fallic nosecone and get an aerodynamic advantage along the race.
    It might work with all cars so far, except Ferrari and Mercedes.
    As far as I know there is no punishment for finishing the race without some part of the nose, given that its still inside the weight limit.

    1) FALCON

    Cone in peregrine falcon nostril allows air to enter by disrupting airflow.

    Falcons are known for their high speed flight, and the Peregrine is thought to be the fastest bird, accurately clocked at 90 meters per second. A contender is the Prairie Falcon. Incidentally, in the making of airplanes, especially jets, humans came onto a problem. As planes got faster and faster, the engines started choking out at a certain speed. It seems that the air, instead of going into the cowl of the engine, encountered a wall of still air and engine cowl and so split and went around the engine. Puzzled, the researchers wondered how the falcons could still breathe at such incredible speeds. Looking at the falcon’s nostrils, they found the answer. In the opening of the nostril is a small cone that protrudes a bit. Fashioning a similar cone in the opening of the jet engine, they discovered that the air could pass into the engine even at great speed. Once again a human invention is preceded by an animal adaptation.” (Chaffee Zoo 2007)

    “The air pressure from a 200 mph (320 km/h) dive could possibly damage a bird’s lungs, but small bony tubercles in a falcon’s nostrils guide the shock waves of the air entering the nostrils (compare intake ramps and inlet cones of jet engines), enabling the bird to breathe more easily while diving by reducing the change in air pressure.” (Wikipedia 2008) –Asknature.org

    I agree! I find it hilarious that an F1 fan would get his/her little knickers in a twist because the cars aren’t as pretty. I think the new noses look really purposeful and, in any case, I would refer to the old adage that a beautiful car is fast car.

    B/c these 2014 “anteater” noses are FUGLY!!!

    Step-noses (especially the F2012) were gorgeous, by comparison.

    Although I’m doubting the BBC would be allowed to describe the Lotus one as a “camel-toe”..

    btw, James:

    I think it’s cool to create character-associations for each 2014 car specifically, but what you’re ultimately hoping for is a single term to reference the entire class of designs, no?

    If that’s the case, I like:

    * Anteater;

    * Aardvark; or

    * Elephant-trunk!!!

    I think the cars shown thus far are not as aesthetically delightful as, say, the 1978 Lotus, but they are better looking than the step nosed cars. And more diverse! When I first started following F1 the cars all looked different from each other. The Tyrell and the Lotus were the front-runners, but they were very different. The 2014 cars are not that different from each other, but they are pleasingly diverse. I expect that over time the aero guys will home in on the one optimal solution and the cars will all look alike again, but for now lets enjoy the diversity.
