    Wink 2019 Car Launches

    Well it's been a boring off season for the most part, with most of the driver line ups and such already decided before the end of last year. Short of some major drama at the last minute, nothing will change.

    But with only a couple weeks left before the car launches and first testing sessions, at least we have something to look forward to!



    Toro Rosso Feb 11 Online
    Renault Feb 12 Enstone, UK
    Racing Poin Feb 13 Toronto, Canada
    McLaren Feb 14 TBC
    Ferrari Feb 15 TBC
    Sauber Feb 18 Barcelona, Spain



    Who will get it right? Who will have the dog of a car? Livery? Major changes?

    We will find out soon enough. Well maybe not soon enough, but fairly soon.

    While I understand if they decide to just go with a major change, I secretly wish Racing Point would keep the pink livery. It's a great color and obviously different from any other team on the track

    I kind of disagree. For a start, the team might stop receiving tampons via the post, which l think may have happened. Time for the team to look like a proper racing team with some manly colours. Force India took it very well in the chin because it was a financial necessity, under normal conditions, they may never allow anything resembling pink anywhere near their car, not to talk pink overalls.

    Racing Point has a chance reinvent the team, and l would be very surprised if the turn up in a car that looks like a Force India. New times men!

    I think something like this would be slick!

    I really wish the teams would avoid liveries that are mostly silver, or black, or a mix of thereof. I recall how a few years ago F1 and WEC's LMP1 teams both used such liveries, and it was pretty difficult to tell what team the car belongs to without seeing it closely. We need more _real_ colors in racing. Blue, yellow, orange, green, white, or even zebra. That would be great.

    The John Player Lotus F1 and the UOP Shadow CanAm cars were the best black liveries.
