Only 63 days are left till the first Formula 1 Grand Prix in Bahrain. That means testing of the new cars will begin soon. Force India has announced they will show the new car only during the second tests. They’ll use the old car between 1st and 3rd February. Virgin Racing has chosen a similar tactic.
Slowly other teams are announcing the dates of the new cars presentations too. Red Bull, McLaren, Lotus and Toro Rosso have announced that we will see their new cars during the first round of testing on 1st February in Valencia. The presentation of the new Ferrari will be in the last week of January.
Lotus Renault will introduce the black and gold combination on the show of Autosport in Great Britain next week on the old car. We’ll see the ultimate appearance of the new car on 31st January. Sauber has also planned the presentation of the new car on that day.
To be honest, I cannot wait how the new cars will look like. The last season I loved the looks of Red Bull and Virgin Racing cars. However, the Virgins weren’t any good. The appearance of the car doesn’t affect its power, but sometimes it’s good to have a nice look 😉
