2017 Launch News

2007

Super Aguri launch…

… and we have our full grid of cars! It’s quite pretty, actually – the white and red, as with last year, makes it look a bit too much like a Toyota, but generally it continues the evolution that last year’s livery went through over the course of the season, and I think [Read More]

Spyker Change Livery

The season hasn’t even started yet (four days until quali, though, hurrah!), and already one team have performed an about-face on their launched livery : The press release is here, with Colin Kolles admitting that “Whilst the bright orange was a very distinctive colour when you saw it [Read More]

Honda Do Screenshot Of Google Earth, Paste Onto Car

Well, we’ll know on Monday if this is genuine or not; but the site that originally posted the following image were quickly asked to take it down by representatives of Honda (always a sign that something is the real deal). Make of it what you will – I’m not sure I know what to [Read More]

Only three to go as Spyker launch…

So yes, Team Identity Crisis (alright, maybe I’m doing Spyker a disservice, maybe they’ll be around for years and become a noted F1 name – but come on, it’s hard to believe that this team was coming third in the championship with Frentzen as recently as 1999) have launched [Read More]

Williams launch FW29 (and a general round-up)

And the pictures that were leaked last month prove to be genuine, albeit with slight differences (look at the angle of the Lenovo brand on the sidepod) – I’m guessing that those original photos were of test mock-ups or something. (picture from F1Racing.net) It continues Williams’ [Read More]

Renault launch R27

… and it’s awful. Really, really hideous. (picture from F1Racing.net) Here’s a hint, boys – when you’ve got a new title sponsor with new corporate colours, you don’t need to just try and fit them onto your existing livery, because it’s the ideal opportunity [Read More]

New Lids

The new Renault launch is later today, and I’ll be covering that from 1pm GMT, with news of whether or not we actually get to see their eagerly-anticipated new livery. In the meantime, though, it’s worth noting that both the main title contenders for this year have got new helmets to go [Read More]

Renault test R27 in interim livery

Of course, what we’re seeing here is unlikely to be much like the final livery (to be unveiled next week), but the shade of blue chosen is interesting – could this be the predominant colour on the car this season? Might we see the rumoured blue and orange after all, with orange taking [Read More]

BMW launch F1.07

Move along, nothing to see here. Except, perhaps, for Nick Heidfeld’s scary new beard and less scary new lid design. They haven’t even done much in the way of moving sponsors around! That’s a Toyota of a new launch, that is, pure and [Read More]

New Williams! (?)

Well, it’s all happening today – and after the disappointment at the lacklustre new McLaren design, it now appears that, despite the official launch not being until next month, pictures of the new Williams have leaked onto the internet. If these are fakes, they’re particularly [Read More]
