  1. “Matte” red doesnt look that terrible under sunlight.

    Wow the Ferrari and Mercedes could not look more different this year. Completely different aero philophies at work, front wings and sidepods especially. Exciting.

  3. Vettel had his fist spin of 2019 already! Great start

  4. Looking at the images it seems mercedes is the only team whose front wing has decent angle near the end plates. Everybody else has much flatter profile wing elements there or almost nothing at all like sauber.

    1. It looks much steeper than all the rest and what I was expecting. Interested who has got it right..!?

    2. Looks like the Red Bull has a low angle as well, not so many photos to make a conclusion tho.

  5. I quick flick through these images should show Rich Energy that the shade of gold they use in their branding just doesn’t come up that well in pictures of the car when it is on track. I’m predicting that shade of gold will change to the more creamy shade that Team Enstone ran from 2012-2015 soon enough.

  6. Racecar is racecar backwards

    I think this may be the first season of F1 where I’ve liked every single livery.
