The last time we saw a Honda in black livery, it was the RA107. F1 cars in black looks evil!

Looks like Force India won't be taking part in the first test.

Earlier they said it will run their 2014 spec race car, but latest news says they will be skipping the first test altogether.

F1 insider claims Force India 'insolvent'

http://www.f1zone.net/news/f1-inside...solvent/44926/

If true this is very tragic news. Even though their financial difficulties have been reported multiple times I didn't think It was very serious.
Good news about Maldonado though : P.

The new McLaren Honda is out.

Looks good. But not sure about the red pinstripe though.

The livery has to be temporary. Even the team caps only have Mclaren Honda.
What impresses me most is the tightly packaged rear.
Great job by Honda and McLaren.

I quite like the way the Mclaren Honda looks except for the red mirrors. Very clean and tight design. Best nose design so far in my opinion. The Ferrari is out tomorrow.

Glimpse at the 2015 Mercedes:

Default McLaren-Honda MP4-30 revealed.

The 2015 F1 Season, Calendar & Rule Changes-mp430__low_front_on.jpg

After a 23-year parting of ways, McLaren has brought Honda back onto the grid for this season, and will be the only team running the Japanese automaker's brand-new RA615H turbocharged hybrid power unit.

The car has been aerodynamically refined over the winter, and the result is a pretty, elegant car with a refined nose-box solution, slimmed rear-end packaging – particularly around the gearbox – and the incorporation of an all-new power unit under its tightly contoured bodywork.

Fernando Alonso will begin on-track testing of the new MP4-30 at Jerez de la Frontera on Sunday February 1st.

Sauber C34. Going retro.

Seb looks completely out of his element.. oversized cap to oversized overalls.
Kimi is all smiles.. happy to have a team mate who couldnt adjust to the 2014 regulations either!

I compiled this pic of both cars... distinctly different rear ends. Front too ofcourse.

The Mclaren's rear end looks amazing in comparison to Ferrari's. So tightly packed in there. Vettel really needs to find a tailor quick.

I have been digging that SF15-T today.

James Allison with a lot of detail around the new Ferrari


Here are Scarbs thoughts. They have covered the Lotus and the gorgeous Williams too.


And finally the most important aspect, the stickers. Shows the shape of that nose clearly.

The Toro Rosso STR10 is here.

Carlos Sainz Jr and Max Verstappen with the car. That's F1' youngest ever pairing with a combined age of 37 years! Just 2 years older than JB or Kimi.

Look at that rear! The car looks very impressive.

RBR is running this special camouflage livery for the tests at Jerez. Can't make out all the details, but looks like a good looking car underneath that mess.

The W06. Its a lean, mean fighting machine! Get this, as per AutoSport, Nico' fastest time this morning is 4 seconds faster than the quickest overall on day one at Jerez last year.
