    having a closer look at the 2019 rules & what their planning everything looks optimistic. im liking how the front/rear wing, barge boards & brake ducts have all be done so that that the wake is either reduced or moved higher in the air out of the way. but I know all of teams are cynical & think we wont have the 20% improvement Ross Brawn expects

    Agreed Titch, I'm looking forward to seeing some cars and the joy of trying to work out who is playing it straight and who is bluffing during testing.

    I'm fairly certain that all the cars will look identical to last year's cars and each other.

    But they will be painted different colours, apart from the ones which aren't and then they will be the same.

    Cherry Red Autosprint has some clues; “ "The bodywork of the 2019 Ferrari could be colored completely differently compared to the Maranello standard." They are probably use some clues from Mission Winnow. So Red in red with a little bit of white.

    I like the look of the new Haas livery. I don't know why but black cars always look faster somehow. :snigger:

    Looks like a knock off Lotus.

    Also what the HELL are all those stupid bits in the front wing? Is this the new reduction in aero?
