Great marketing opportunities for JCB/Lance Stroll who keep the sponsorship relation even after Williams
I think Caterpillar would have been a better choice.
fyi....the designation is the RP19.
Ferrari SF90......to be called for 2019.
Mercedes sidepods are fantastic. Very innovative little biplane created out of the upper crash structure which extrudes the sidepods quite a bit. They have are funneling that charged air directly around the sidepods and over the diffuser. Lots of repackaging required to get it this way. The cooling engineers were busy. F1technical has a few resized and measured photos showing MB still have more room on the floor than the new RB.
The new Honda engine sounds amazing. I heard videos from the shakedown laps from both TR and RB and it is fantastic. The somewhat hollow sound it always had is gone. The new RB looks good and appears to be a continuation of the finesse and slick designs the underpowered car has taken these past some years compared to the aerodynamic brute force MB and Ferrari have had. Note the rear cowl on the RB features a lot more cooling opening around the exhaust pipe than in previous years. Likely in anticipation for the Honda motor, which I'm hoping for their sake turns out to be reliable. With Honda prefacing the season by advising they want to close the loop holes MB and Ferrari are exploiting, it tells me they clearly aren't making competitive power to them, but still more than Renault at the end of '18 anyway. Not sure what the new Renault brings. Great reveals so far!
I'm not sure how many components are proprietary Ferrari nor how that whole deal works. Would be nice to know just how much is indeed Ferrari.
I’m not sure who’s designing these liveries but they’re doing a very good job. Renault looks plain, Red Bull is plain AND ugly... Racing Point is uglier than last year...easily the ugliest car on the grid and not because it’s pink.
The people at Merc just added some dots... so clearly they didn’t even try. Haas looks like a pimp mobile. I don’t get how you have a team of people... assumingly paid very well... who come up with this crappy stuff and everyone at the factory goes “yeah... that looks awesome.” It’s like every team hired their bosses kid to design the livery and are afraid to tell them it totally sucks.
The Red Bull livery exposed today is just for the testing days.
Couple of videos I found interesting...
Mclaren launching their car live on Sky F1 in about 30mins.
I must say I don't have high hopes for both their car and their livery.
2019 Alfa-Sauber at the Fiorano test track today with Kimi behind the wheel.
more closeup pics
Coke is gone
Loving the Alfa!
Ferrari only one to have stacked exhausts
Just watched the McLaren launch. I was expecting fan fair and razzmatazz!!! I wish them well, but my god what a boring painful launch.
Ok I’m getting old, but the music was so obnoxious!!
The whole thing was dull beyond compare, and a presenter who had to read from cue cards...really!!! you had about ten words, barely got those right. Next time try practising!!!
As to the livery; again done by the bosses kid!!! Actually, no that would insult the kid as I think they could have done a better job!!!
Whats up with the drivers in jeans? No time to order up the race suits even? Who is the chubby bloke with rips in his ? Not exactly professional looking .
