McLaren supposedly have given a hint that their 2018 car could be Papaya Orange in colour:

If the last three years are anything to go by, in the garage with the covers off. :twisted:

Ouch! :D I'm still holding out hope that Honda comes good (I doubt McLaren share my hopes).

I'm okay with them coming good, as long as Renault comes better... ;)

Problem is Alonso will be using a Renault engine so we all know how this will go. Honda will produce a world beater and be fighting for podiums with Toro Rosso while Renault will go backwards.

If you believe that then I have some magic beans that might interest you.

The teams all missed out on a major opportunity to do their car launch by having one put inside the Falcon Heavy.

Haas are launching on the 14th of Feb according to AMuS who have a full list..

https://www.auto-motor-und-sport.de/for ... 00093.html


So tomorrow then. 8O :thumbup:

Also confirms Force India on the 25th so I think we've got the full house.

I've heard about Force India's launch on 25th Feb but I didn't find anything official about date. Haas still hasn't officially announced & I doubt if just 1 day in advance it would announce.

Formula 1's official website has listed the launch dates but has no mention of Force India & Haas:

It's not bad, but I liked the orange top more. That made it easier to recognize at a glance.

McLaren fires up its Renault engine for the 1st time:



Is this the sound of return for Alonso's podium?

Anyone notice anything missing in the pics:



So the forthcoming team name change is happening otherwise why wouldn't Sahara Force India be missing from their tees?

The above image is from the video above. The supposed car comes into view from 1:21 onwards.

As per Corriere della Sera, The Ferrari car this year will be in a darker tone of Red. There would be minimum or no white shade on the livery due to the departure of Santander. There may be slight Grey shades here & there due to increased marketing of its IQOS heated-tobacco product of its sponsor Philip Morris:

It's scheduled for today, but there's still a lot of today left. I'm assuming it's still coming.

Slightly off topic but... Having seen the McLaren reveal today, I really hope they can pull it out the bag and get some good results this season. I personally can't see them being competitive enough to challenge for race wins but it would be great to see them grab a podium. But i'd love to be proven wrong and for them to be a serious contender.

Today Force India posted a picture of the edge of the front wing with a new sponsor. Don't know if it's a hint to the livery ( even though I knew the Pink will remain but Bob Fernley had said this year's livery would be more enhanced) with a bit more Black:
