The F1 teams’ plans to hold a joint launch at the end of January are beginning to fall apart.
Tentative plans had been put in place for a single launch attended by all the F1 teams next month in Valencia, ahead of the first main test of 2010 at the nearby circuit.
That is now looking less likely and the teams are considering individual launches of their own as they have done in the past.
Among the problems with the single launch idea was the concern that smaller teams’ unveilings would be overshadowed by the likes of Ferrari and McLaren.
Some of the new F1 teams for 2010 expressed doubt they would have their cars ready in time.
