I accept I'm out of touch with the times but as an old-school nuts and bolts guy, body graphics that look like a printed circuit board (even though they show some arcing across traces) are not the way to impress me.

A good friend owned the only Porsche Indy Car. [circa 1990s]

Would love to see the Haas F1 American team get some help. I’m tired of seeing them bringing up the rear.
