    The short and wide sidepod design with the trippy bargeboard really was a moment of inspiration in Maranello last winter. Looks like we may see it on a lot of cars in 2018. 

    Williams looks good. Bit difficult to get excited over it as we know it'll still be 1.5 seconds off the top cars when it comes to Melbourne, and Williams will never get back to where they once were given the era we are currently in. But still, progress. Yay.

    don't like that weird black thing on the bottom of the williams. The hass looks exactly like it was last year

    Apparently the black is to make the halo look more elegant, as it follows the same lines as the halo going into the bodywork.

    I know the halo isn't perfect, but I honestly don't think it's going to be that bad. I've seen the new F2 cars on track with them, and they really look fine. When it's incorporated into the liveries it can look ok. I think it'll only look weird from the on board shots. I hope in the future that FOM are able to put cameras inside them, that would be brilliant.

    I was going to say have they removed the camera, but they painted it black as it blends in with the background.

    Red bull's new car with a special livery for its launch.

    I think the livery looks bad even if its just a launch livery.

    It's got extremely slim hips.

    Just a testing livery now but I hope they actually change it up. I'm sick to death of the blue, red and yellow scheme.

    I'm quite liking the lines of the Red Bull! Those side pods are SUPER slim as @onetwothree ; mentioned! 

    Added it to the OP :) 

    More cars to follow tomorrow!

    Renault have just released their 2018 challenger!

    Introducing the Renault R.S.18

    So far, I hate every single livery, especially the Sauber-one, even the Red Bull-one, because I know that's only going to be a testing livery.
  • MBKF1MBKF1 Member Moderator
    I wouldn't say I hate the liveries, but I do find myself disappointed, there's a strong feeling of 'what could've been'.

    Especially with Sauber. They should use that dark red as the main colour rather than white.
    Renault is ok, worse than last year though, not enough yellow on the sides.
    Red Bull is sexaaay, but shame it's not going to be the full season one.
    Williams and Haas are boring too, especially Haas.

    I just hope McLaren, Ferrari and Force India release some knock out designs. They could be oh so good.

    It's not that I hate the liveries, I'm just so bored of them. Red Bull's is cool, but it's just for show, they'll go back to their classic one, which I'm sick of. The rest are just bland and uninspiring. I thought Alfa would have had some unique Italian flare but nope. 

    Ferrari will be the same as it always is. Merc and McLaren will just be slightly different than last years.

    Maybe Force India will do something new, the pink was new at least. 
  • onetwothreeonetwothree Member Team Principal
    Alfa Sauber probably didn't do too much red since it'd clash with the Ferrari. But yeah, it could have done with a lot more.

    The new Ferrari looks sexy! I can't wait to see the SF71H in action. I hope they can challenge Mercedes even more this season.

    The MCL33 is a great car for sure and i bsolutely love the fact that the car has got a full orange finish this time, but overall the cars livery also looks bland and simply put dull in certain aspects, almost like a "25 cent toy car" to reference a ol' bud of mine.

    If the sides had some sponsors (at least the McLaren Renault tag) or some blue design (like some stripes / geometric figures / grid mesh etc.) or even better the drivers names on it (e.g. Stoffel / Fernando, like back in the good ol' days of David / Mika), it'd have looked much better imho.

    Other than that i most definitely hope Honda will be the 2nd or 3rd best engine this year..... 

    PS: Yes, i know that McLaren is powered by Renault now and yes, i'm an evil bastard.

    PPS: Ferrari is looking to be the real deal this time #ForzaFerrari

    PPPS: Force Indias livery, ♥♥♥

    Someone posted this edit on Reddit earlier, the new Ferrari with black wings. NSFW.


    This is what the Ferrari should look like. This looks MEAN.
