|Formula 1| Ferrari launches online and Force India hits the ground running #F1

As always, anyone can find pictures of the new cars all over the web, but I like to provide videos of the car launches. Check them both out after the jump.

These #F1 onboard helmet camera views are #&%@ing awesome!!!

As a Formula 1 mega-nerd, I am loving the 2012 season. With more media teams covering the races, the fans get more access and information than ever before. One cool feature is a new cameraview from the helmets of the drivers. It’s pretty cool to see what they are looking at, from as close to their viewpoint as this.

Check out this view of Paul DiResta during the Chinese Grand Prix last week.

Rumor is that if you buy SkySportsF1HD, then you can watch entire races from this view. (But being in the United States, I don’t think that we can access that.) Oh well, back to streaming feeds for me!

F1 Paul di Resta at the Force India factory

Granted, this was before Paul was given an F1 Drive for 2011, but we at the StartingGrid are huge fans of this guy. We know that he’ll make a good showing in 2011.

Also if Force India changed the  team colors to black, orange and green like those techs have on, that would be awesome!
