Thank you yco....well done.

Haas and Alfa Romeo will unveil their cars the morning of the first day of winter testing on Wed 19 Feb; hopeful there is greater parity among the teams, especially the very sharpest end of the grid which include MB, RB and the Prancing Horse.

It would be awesome to see one or two new mid-field contenders mix it up at the front a bit; perhaps McLaren and Renault are the two that may bring greater parity.

Hopeful that Williams will find their way out of P19-P20....

There's supposedly an advantage to running a matte paint. I'm curious to see how the McLaren will look like in person in matte paint though.

Makes you wonder how much of a difference it makes though. If I recall correctly only Ferrari, Red Bull and now McLaren run matte paint. Renault ran a matte finish a few years ago (the RS17 I think) and I think it looked really good. Come to think of it, the half yellow, half black paint scheme from that RS17 looked seriously good compared to what came after...

it should be few hundred grammes if i recall it right.. but still something..
and i guess it gives a smoother surface after putting sponsors on as well..

yeah i agree Renault looks pretty neat.. at the same time probably we may mix Renaults and McLarens a bit as well on TV..

Positive . "Dilara Sanlik" is reportedly a German student, hailing from Munich, but currently studying in London.

The new Alpha Tauri (formerly Toro Rosso) has been launched as well. I'm digging the new color scheme, looks quite refreshing compared to some of the other cars!

I actually thought the color scheme nicely ties back to what they ran in 2019 and still managed to be fresh. The 2020 scheme looks to be a deeper shade of blue and replaces the silver with white. The driver suits on the other hand, just about all white so those are definitely a bigger change.

Refreshing as you say to see the mostly white livery as from the first Honda powered cars that entered F1 in the sixties.
Could have used something different from the usual robotic models for the launch.The good luck message to the drivers
is good and the technical diagram going from a design to the taurus (bull) is fantastic.
Not a bad launch for RB's sister car.

Well said - this livery has aligned with a brand (Honda) that takes us back to their 1960's F1 car's appearance.

I am really enjoying the sophistication and production of the launches....very inventive and professional.

Looks like Williams and Racing Point launched their new cars yesterday. It looks like Racing Point has a new team name too, BWT Racing Point F1 Team (Sport Pesa no longer being their title sponsor). And I like the fact that Williams added a bit more color to their car, their color scheme last year was much too bland.

And to complete the car reveals, Renault, Alfa Romeo and Haas all unveiled their cars for this season. Renault is running a temporary, all-black livery for testing. The yellow will be back starting in Australia.

Anyone watching testing on F1 TV?

Watching on f1 tv here.

The Racing Point nose looks just like the Merc. Wonder if they'll go fast this year.
