Definitely a step back from the Martini livery, but not terrible.

The Williams's hump is less pronounced.

Not sure what to make of the Willaims's new paint job. So hard to tell with the black background. But generally not a fan of the spray painted look.

Just about anything will be a step back from the Martini colours. Yeah, not bad, could be alot worse. At least it looks like Williams has a sponsor. Never heard of ROKiT.

Hmmm. It doesn't seem like this company actually sells anything right now. They claim that they will soon offer service in some cities in India.
Is this another phantom comapny like Rich Energy?

Renault R.S. 19

Similar to STR, not a big departure from the 2018 livery:

I'll agree with 'so far'
Curious to see the new Racing Point, less pink & added blue.
Not expecting much departure on the RBR
Have read that Ferrari may be slightly different than traditional.
Hoping the Alfa has a good look like last year's Sauber.

Definitely the best so far. Isn't the stripe down the side where catrol edge is new this year? I believe that space was just a giant vacant black area on last years car.

Indeed something was going on – the launch of the RB15 at Silverstone – and this is what they produced.Here's your first glimpse of the #RB15 pic.twitter.com/7yrOgTuizg

— Red Bull Racing (@redbullracing) February 13, 2019


It is certainly a very different look, and the first time that Red Bull have really shook-up their design since the purple-patched 2015 edition.First images of the Red Bull RB15 emerge… pic.twitter.com/9xDwXIHjlL

— Pitpass.com (@pitpassdotcom) February 13, 2019


While Mercedes hinted at a new camo livery, only to let us down with its absence at their launch earlier in the day, Red Bull have kept their overhaul quiet.

In what they have described as a “one-off” design – we may not be graced by the presence of this RB15 for much further than the launch.

But, it is a dramatic move away from recent years with the navy blue and red lines. Interestingly – it features no yellow.

The newly designed front wing is bolted on, and you can just make out that Honda badge now present on the nose of the RB15.



It’s the season of change for Red Bull, who will pick things up in 2019 far from where they signed off last season. The biggest change without doubt is their new engine supplier – Honda.

After years of bickering with Renault (twelve years to be exact), the Austrian team finally kicked their engine supplier to the curb, linking up with Honda from 2019.

The Japanese manufacturer have had it far from easy since their return to Formula 1 in 2015, with their three-year stint alongside McLaren proving a disaster.

But, after supplying Red Bull’s junior team Toro Rosso in 2018, Honda did enough to bring the four-time Drivers’ and Constructors’ Championship-winning team onboard.

While neither outfit will be recognised as an official Honda works team, the deal will bring Red Bull and Toro Rosso closer together in terms of their working relationship than in previous years.

Red Bull’s Max Verstappen has been vocal throughout the winter about his cautious optimism surrounding the Honda link-up.

Speaking ahead of the RB15 launch, Verstappen said: “I am most looking forward to just start the season and see how the whole team is operating, of course together with Honda, and how the engine is performing together with the chassis. That is what I am looking forward to.”

He added: “With the new partner, with Honda, we are expecting a lot. We are all very positive, but I think it also needs to take a little bit of time. It cannot be that from race one it can be perfect.

“For sure there will be moments where as a team we’ll make mistakes, or it is maybe not going as we want it to. But I think what is very important is that the team and Honda are pushing very hard to improve the development.

“At the moment I am very optimistic, but also realistic. I think time will tell how we are going to perform.”

The Dutchman will also have a new team-mate in the form of Pierre Gasly, who graduated from Toro Rosso after a single impressive season in 2018.

Team principal Christian Horner did admit that Gasly’s call-up came “faster than we would have liked” following Daniel Ricciardo’s departure to Renault, but the young Frenchman fully intends on stepping up to the plate, describing Verstappen as the “perfect reference” for his own performances.
Sadly they have mentioned this is a one-off livery which is terrible news cause it looks awesome. I expect to be underwhelmed by the actual livery.

RB15 "one-off" livery .... meh ...

On looks alone, I prefer the W10 or even the RS19 ....

Maybe it's just me, but I hate these "digital," image-only launches (aka "soft launches") ... will be curious to see how the Honda PU works out in the RBR chassis ....

That Red Bull design is definitely bold. But maybe not in a good way.

The Honda logos are smaller than the Aston Martin logos.

No surprise that I'm a fan of the W10, think it looks great. No idea what those teaser camo images from MB were about, had me thinking they were going to run a camo livery for testing ala RBR a few years ago.

The new RBR isn't bad, but not striking with only having 2 primary colors. Works for the Renault, not so much here...

The new Red Bull livery is more in line with the old Toro Rosso livery. Like a modern cubism interpretation of a Red Bull.

Not a fan of the RP car. The all pink/white worked, adding in the blue doesn't look great.

Racing Point's new livery is ... ho-hum ... but I have to admit that I'm glad the Pink Panthers are still pink and still on the grid ...

Yeah, too much blue. I like the pink theme, but not a fan of how they added the blue air box.

I was really hoping the new car's livery would pay homage to Canada with a red and white color scheme mimicking their flag, perhaps a maple leaf thrown in for good measure.

Looks much better than last years. I like the addition of the blue. Wish they would have done maybe the mirrors in the blue too.

Love is in the air at McLaren HQ after the new MCL34 was officially unveiled to the world.

McLaren changed to a classic papaya orange ahead of the 2018 season and have stayed loyal to it as they prepare for what will hopefully be a year of progression for the fallen giants.



McLaren have followed in the footsteps of others with making slight alterations to their look as opposed to wholesale changes. A little bit more dark blue has been added to contrast with the papaya.

The eight-time Constructors’ Champions rose up to P7 in the 2018 standings, but that was largely thanks to Fernando Alonso wringing the neck out of what was ultimately another uncompetitive race car.

A second year of Renault power awaits McLaren, who have an all-new driver line-up in Carlos Sainz and British rookie Lando Norris.

More to follow…

Alfa Romeo (chassis name TBD)
Assuming this is another one-off launch livery. 2018s Sauber looked much better, IMO.

My thoughts exactly. Both the Alfa and McLaren has weird snouts for the noses. Looks awful.

Not a fan of McLaren's new livery. Looks like a blue car rear ended an orange car.

Like the Alfo camo.

Hopefully this isn't the season of ugly nose jobs in F1 with the reduced downforce from the front wing maybe they are trying to get more out of the nose.
