The new Formula 1 season is just over a month away. The 70th Formula 1 World Championship, the 1000th grand prix. This is going to be a historical year.

Some teams have revealed their cars for the new season. I quite like the Renault livery.

Renault




HAAS




New Torro Rosso




Williams will be now known as 'Rokit Wiliams Racing'.




Racing Point

New year, new identity. The team formerly known as Force India but later christened Racing Point pulled the covers off their 2019 challenger at the Canadian International Autoshow in Toronto.




Mercedes




Red Bull

Not sure if this is preseason livery or the full thing.

I suspect it'll be another pre-season livery to try and hide stuff, they've been doing it for years. It's all those lines and angles.

The Renault looks so good from the side but too much yellow from the front.

Mercedes looks good. Got a nose job it seems.

It's a good looking car.

One thing I don't like is the front wing end plates (is that even what there called) there too big and too square.

Alfa Romeo promised a radical shape and interesting innovations to their car. Looks like they weren't kidding!



McLaren also launched today - "a better tomorrow". They will certainly be hoping so.

Sauber have a strange front wing. I wonder did they spot a loophole in new regulations. What's the bets Ferrari and Haas have something similar?

Ferrari looks to have copied the McLaren nose from last year?
