    Very true but with limited testing, especially this year, plus testing isn't close by, it's a very valuable bit of track time to have a bit of a shakedown. It was great to see McLaren first out of the blocks, especially with the new PU.

    Alpha Tauri looking smart again!

    Lot more navy blue!

    Looks like Alpha Tauri are showing last years floor!!! I do like the dark blue though and the contrasting Honda in red.

    Looks like Drive to Survive 2020 will start on 19th March 2021 on NetFlix. Should be a good one depending on which teams they where with. What with the pandemic things might look a bit different - looking forward to it though.

    Wouldn't mind a Williams livery if it was predominantly navy blue with pink underneath. But my feeling is BWT would love a Schumacher to promote their brand

    A few Williams pics leaked from a Silverstone shakedown and at the minute its traditional white and blue- whether it changes with a sponsor we will see.

    Really wish them well though and that they can progress again

    Doesn't mean much. Remember Force India launched a silver car before they turned up for the first race in BWT pink

    Interestingly the Alpha T team boss says his engineers have told him this years car is faster than last years- despite a 10% reduction in downforce from technical reg changes!

    Bargeboard and floor wars here we come?

    Only comparisons we have at the moment whilst we wait for further launches but a little indication of the Honda & Mercedes packaging difference.

    I’m sure Red Bull will be slimmer than AT with Mr Newey designing so let’s see!

    Few more rumours about BWT (Pink) and who they might be sponsoring!! It sounds like it's not going to be Haas as a few sources are reporting that Mick won't be wearing pink.
    So looks more likely it will be Williams and George wearing pink for 2021? Only a couple of weeks till Williams launch I think.

    No NO NO to a pink Williams, please. If it is must be a sponsorship, let it be no more than a pink badge.

    This fan made livery isn't bad though

    Haas or Williams, It would have to be something different to racing point livery.

    The F1 car reveal, where the F1 teams show off last years cars with a livery they probably won't use.

    Alpha Romeo launch very interesting- total change in nose philosophy and at first glance what looks like a more streamlined engine layout (awaiting confirmation).

    Could be very indicative of what to expect of Ferrari when they launch- have been waiting for Ferrari to slim down for quite some time so very interested to see how they go this year.

    Will they gain back that lost power?
