Here ya go

I'm looking forward to a hopefully improved Williams giving Mercedes a good go. Honda's re-entry into F! should be intresting as well as finding out if Ferrari gets back in the mix or becomes the Italian soap opera it so often is.

The reported reason is the 2015 car wouldn't be ready for Jerez and they didn't believe there'd be enough learning opportunity running the 2014 car so they're focusing on getting the 2015 car ready for Barcelona. Of course like many things in F1, the truth may/may not be truly represented by the press release.

Looking at the predicable winning results in a given F1 season (usually top 3 teams can win)...raises the question how much are the driver or car responsible? The drivers should rotate cars every race.

Yup, Force india has been singled out by the media for "financial troubles" for every year.

I actually like the look of the "graffiti camouflage" Red Bull.

Okay, I like the paint scheme, not the actual beaky-yet-floppy nose.

Restrictive regulations design the car for you - Adrian Newey


I agree, I think F1 sorely needs to return to the time when innovation was encouraged rather than just about ruled out from the Formula.

Holy crap that paint design is busy. I'm not sure I dig that tbh. The actual car design I do like. The nose piece is interesting.

Red Bull has said the cars will be back in more 'traditional' Red Bull livery when the season starts. The black/white testing scheme is based on camouflage developed in wartime and meant to fool the eye and make it difficult to judge actual shapes.
