Unusually it’s taken until round two of the championship for us to get a proper look at the full grid for the new season.
The aesthetics of the cars was a major talking point during the off-season following further rules changes aimed at eliminating the unsightly noses which spoiled the look of last year’s cars.
How successful have they been? And whose car do you like the best? Compare all ten below and vote for your favourite.
Everything about the Mercedes W06 from the outside looks like a clear development of last year’s crushingly dominant W05.
Red Bull RB11
Red Bull are back in their familiar but slightly updated livery having run a black-and-white ‘camouflage’ design during pre-season testing.
The successor to your favourite from last year, still sporting that iconic livery and now with a stubby little nose.
Ferrari team principal Maurizio Arrivabene said the team’s latest car is at least a step forward from its predecessor in terms of aesthetics, and it’s hard to argue with that.
Some were hoping for a more retro look from McLaren following their reunion with Honda. CEO Ron Dennis has said the team’s livery could change if a major new sponsor comes on board.
Force India VJM08
Looking not a little similar to the McLaren from some angles, Force India have taken their dark livery a stage further for 2015, replacing much of the white with silver.
Toro Rosso STR10
No surprises in Toro Rosso’s livery design for their tenth Formula One car.
Last year’s Lotus was an instantly recognisable design in any colour thanks to its bizarre twin-tusked nose. That’s gone now, and the split from Renault means no more Total red either.
There is no mistaking the Sauber this year thanks to the team’s bold, if basic, new blue-and-yellow livery.
It took until the second race weekend of the season for Manor’s car to turn a wheel. The chassis is an adapted version of its 2014 design and its livery is almost entirely blank.
