    I reckon an insider has leaked news of the buffet...
    Baz: "Hey Daz, have you seen this? There'll be mini sausage rolls!"
    Daz: "Wha? Where did you see that?"
    Baz: "Shaz heard it from Kaz"
    Daz: "Ok I'm definitely going"
    Baz: "Me too. It's going to be awesome. My excitement levels are rising."

    Ferrari launch on youtube live now! Just realised that was almost the end!!! 'Car' reveal is about 40 min in!!!!
    Not sure that that was anywhere near close to what will even be tested. The area under the nose looked remarkably lacking in ducts and and aero parts. The sides of the floor also look way too simple. Can't blame them of keeping things under wraps but do launches like this give us anything at all?

    They reveal how Seb likes Tortellini and Schnitzel. Possibly not much else. Possibly not even that.

    The launch was pretty cool to be honest.

    Off topic but the suits were SNAZZY. <laugh>

    Look at the rake on that car. I don’t recall that last season and is more akin to Red Bull- as is a lot of the design actually. The front end reminded me of last years Red Bull.

    Some rumours around that a change of nose will happen come testing...but there’s always gossip at this stage

    Second image down on the right is the one that gives me a serious case of the Red Bulls.

    The front-on image makes you think it’s similar to last year but this looks radically different in philosophy and a very bold gamble if so.

    Looks like it's got real potential to set the world on fire in testing..... then fizzle out like a feeble rocket by summer. Not that, that's ever happened previously or anything...

    One thing we do have to remember is that 2017 and 2018 this was a team who were right up there on high downforce circuits. Last years FW changes seemed to throw them off course a little and their concept had a narrower window of opportunities for it to be class-leading.

    If they have rectified that without compromising the strengths of last years car then they really ought to have a strong contender. Of course though, with change comes higher chance of other things being affected so seeing them drop behind Red Bull would be as equally likely as a title bid.

    They will be a very interesting team to watch in the final days of testing- particularly Sector 3 in Barcelona!

    Parts of the front nose look half finished. Definitely something going on there, this is just a filler for the launch.

    Launches have probably had their day, in the sense of what we used to see. There will be some dummy designs in testing too. Roll on the first GP.

    The rake is so obvious, is it real I wonder.

    I assume you know testing will be broadcast on Sky!! I hope they do a highlights show as there are going to be lots of boring durability laps and time when no one out on track :D

    Renault 'blaming' public for their reaction to last years cars for not revealing their 2020 car!!!! They go on to say the reveals are just fake cars that cost money and manpower to build! Ture but surely the point is to generate publicity and support for the team? Maybe even a bit of smoke and mirrors to take up other teams time seeing if they have a new concept on the car?

    Looks like most cars are just evolutions, with teams not really wanting to push the designs out too far with the new 2021 rules coming in.

    Boring...................

    Renault in 'we can't be bothered' shock.
    why are they even in F1? They always seem to be in F1 reluctantly.

    And within an hour McLaren make me look like a complete idiot by revealing something that looks a lot different.

    The back end reminds me of a 1997 Benetton with its coke-bottle being completely covered by a cowling extending from the sidepods back through to the rear wing.

    I had to keep looking at different photos to check it wasn;t the paint work making it look like that. I hope they have made a step forwards, but that Renault 'power' in the back isn't going to help.
