    So Sauber gets ALFA marketing alliance. Is Haas next?

    A
    Maserati-Haas union does make sense. Haas would be able to continue using Ferrari powertrains, since Maserati would likely turn to its corporate cousin the same way Alfa did in its deal with Sauber. Haas cars are already mostly Italian, so the deal would seem like more than mere marketing. Haas would get its first-ever big sponsor, and Maserati would have an easy way back into F1.

    So far, I love the Renault livery.
    I like the Alfa Romeo from the back only (lol sounds dirty)
    RBR i suspect is a temp livery and williams looks the same to me. (and yes that's williams in small caps because that is all they deserve)
    you can't argue with results

    The Mercedes looks awesome as usual. I was relieved to see that they have not adopted the raked setup of Ferrari and Redbull. Which means that this W09 is going to be mighty this season. Of course we have to see what the Scuderia Ferrari has up its sleeves at Barcelona. Redbull are quietly confident, more like hopeful, l would say. But it would be great to have a real mixup at the front among Mercedes, Ferrari, Redbull and Mclaren.
    But seeing that Mercedes has gone with evolution rather than revolution, l think they would be hard to beat this year. Unless Ferrari has found something in the winter months.

    NOW BRING ON MELBOURNE AUSTRALIA!!!!

    what i like so far are the very different approaches each team has taken this year, making each car rather unique.
    The mercedes does look super tight and well designed. I can't wait for testing to begin.
    2018 hype is now finally getting to me.

    The Mercedes looks absolutely beautiful. Iím a bit torn about the Ferrari. Itís not the thing of beauty I thought it might be. Canít wait for the season to start now.

    It turns out that Ferrari has gone the Mercedes way with the SF71H. It has a longer wheelbase compared to the SF70 and the rake has gone it seems. Besides those obvious things, it is the most elegant shape than anything else released so far. Obviously very closely matched by the Mercedes.

    I think there is something very serious, even sombre about this Ferrari. I get a distinct feeling that this car is in the mood to race hard.

    I think we are set for a cracking season. Every car launched so far, seem to have made noticeable steps forward. The Williams was very striking and eagerly awaited to see what that car can do. But the potential new sharp end of the grid is shaping to include a closer Redbull and an emancipated Mclaren.

    I agree, the red supersoft would have complimented the design perfectly. But l have to say, this is a truly beautiful Sauber. I think the best Sauber design ever actually. I am sure someone would prove me wrong shortly. l love it. It certainly is one of the top three livery on the grid. And that is not an easy statement to make with the total make over of all the cars we have seen so far.
