What do You Think of Ferrari's 'Aggressive' F1 Concept?

Formula One is looking to make some changes for the future.

Ideas were discussed during a Formula One meeting in Geneva on Tuesday to try making the sport better. Ferrari piggybacked off that idea by asking fans to voice their opinion on a design for a new concept F1 car.

"Let us introduce you to the concept design that was conceived by our design studio together with the Scuderia's aero department. Minimal changes give the car a look that is way different from what have been familiar with so far," the automaker said in a statement.

Ferrari posted a F1 concept car design online Tuesday that drastically differs from the current model. Pictures of the front and rear were posted on a new standalone website revealing a vehicle similar to a Dallara DW12 IndyCar, where the rear wheels are partially enclosed.

Pictures of the concept shows that Ferrari went a little further with front wheels that are also partially enclosed. The areo and wings designs have been modified in this concept as well.

Ferrari is looking for people to leave observations in the comments section on the website to find out what F1 fans think of the car.

"Our challenge was to create something that was - to put it short - better looking. We value your comments on that," Ferrari said on its website.

If you have a problem with the car, we assume they're looking for more than just "it's awful!" or "it sucks!" so if you have a suggestion please be as specific as possible. You never know, Ferrari might actually use something you suggest.

Red Bull also unveiled a new vehicle on Tuesday (technically before Ferrari did), revealing its X2014 concept on Twitter.

F1 has not seen a big chassis design change since 2009, but the Ferrari and Red Bull concepts will at the very least get people talking.

What do you think of the two race cars?
