2019 cars are all set to be unveiled this week. Renault, Williams and Red Bull have already. Haas are rocking a new black and gold look.

Yeah it was a classic, Williams' new look will take a bit of getting used to. Still at least they've got a title sponsor so monetarily they'll be unaffected.

 

New Merc was revealed today, and as far as I can tell, it looks like the old one. Racing Point (Force India RIP) are due up at 3. I'm expecting red and white, as they've "paid homage to their new Canadian owner" apparently. I'll kinda miss the pink actually, it was strikingly different.

 

Guessing Ferrari and McLaren won't be huge departures, or Red Bull (launch was a one off)

It's still pink, with a bit more blue in it. Quite a fan of the Racing Point-livery.

 

Guessing that the last potential for a surprise livery, will be Alfa Romeo.

Expecting more red, as they're basically Ferrari's Torro Rosso. I'll have to check out the Racing Point car.

 

Williams have scratched the shakedown for Sunday, as they're behind with the build - so they'll be running it new out of the box next week I'd suspect.

 

EDIT: Yeah, that Racing Point car is nice, glad they retained the pink.

Everything about Williams sounds like it's heading towards a Minardi-esque season. I'm sorry.

I sometimes wonder why I still bother with Formula One. I just hope we aren't last this year.

New McLaren looks nice, hope it differs from last years, in that it might work.

Err, more bad news for Claire and the gang. Apparently they're going to miss the start of testing in Barcelona tomorrow - Sky didn't go into specifics, but I assume the car's delay was worse than first suspected.

Sorry RyderFan, I don't do this on purpose. It's amazing, growing up in mid to late 80's Williams and McLaren were the undisputed big boys of F1, if you'd have said they'd ever be propping up the rankings, I would have laughed.

:P

 

Mind you, if you want proof of miracles happening in F1, A McLaren did 120 laps in testing today WITHOUT BREAKING DOWN!!  In fact it looks like everyone who ran today got a good programme in. Track conditions were perfect.

 

Don't like the matte paint on the Ferrari however, damn thing looks orange. Was like Sebastian driving a Flymo.
