    A livery like the cg overlay in the preview pic would be cool.

    The new Williams looks pretty good, although the little video clip makes it hard to really see it well

    White w/ a frost blue airbrushed trim, oh and a title sponsor.



    The nicest looking 20th place car in years!

    Has anyone watched the races through formula1.com last year? I am in Germany and don't have any of the other channels that carry the race (Sky and RTL in Germany), so I am looking into maybe doing this for the 2019 season.

    I watched the first few races with the F1TV subscription to check it out last year and it was quite pleasant. If I didn’t get the races on my regular television channels then I’d definitely sub to it for the full season. I’m in USA though, so not sure if the service is different in Germany.

    Can't you somehow get Austrian TV in Germany? It's on ORF1 for free, that's the only tolerable way to watch F1 in Switzerland because the Swiss commentary person is just awful.

    There's a disturbing amount of dodgy business involved in F1 sponsors this year. We have the pretty blatant tobacco advertising on Ferrari (see: "mission winnow"), a vapourware energy drink that seemingly isn't sold anywhere and a logo markedly similar to a bike company and now a company that makes phones that I've never heard of (and aren't yet released?) but apparently have enough money for massive sponsorship deals.

    I don't have access to regular German TV at all (by choice as 95% on it is crap), so I don't have access to Austrian TV either :). I haven't watched F1 regularly in about 10 years, ever since I got rid of TV. But from the mid-90s to the late 00s I have watched basically every race.

    So I might give F1.com a shot this year. Its just 65€ for the whole season - as long as I get that streamed to my TV set. I also want to watch a few other series during the year. Some IMSA races, some GT3, maybe even NASCAR. I will even try and attend some stuff live this year, as 5 courses (Spa, Nürburgring, Hockenheim, Zandvoort, Zolder) are an easy driving distance from my home. There are number of races besides Formula 1, especially the historic races are of interest.

    And that Renault looks fantastic.

    Certainly the best livery of these three so far.

  • JasconiusJasconius sword criminal mad onlineRegistered User regular
    definitely the first completely normal looking car

    well, i guess the torro rosso is too, but in so much as it is totally identical to last year

    On roku IMSA has their own app that you can stream all of their sponsored races from the day after the event. Not sure about live streaming though. I imagine they have it for other devices, but I'm not sure if they would work in germany.

    Speaking of NASCAR, Daytona 500 is this Sunday.

    Similar to last year's. But that was already good. I like how from the front it's a yellow car, and from the side it's black. Uses the geometry of the car well.

    Tomorrow we have Mercedes, Red Bull and Racing Point (ex Force India) scheduled



    times are all a bit wonky, but this timetable is what I've been following.

    Ah Amazon, where I go to buy all my energy drinks! Seriously though, I'm not aware of it actually being sold anywhere physical. The top amazon review is gold though:

    This promised so much - I thought Rich Energy would give me enough power that I could travel back to India, drive around in a fancy Mercedes powered car and beat Red Bull. Sadly, Rich Energy was full of artificial ingredients that left a bad taste in my mouth - which a cursory look at the details would have told me in advance. Instead we were headed straight to the scene of the accident. Fortunately I have many BWT Vida Water Filter Jug, White, 2.6 Litre to remove the bad taste.

    I think that was made official pretty recently, only a couple of weeks at most, so easy to miss in the shuffle.

    Here's Red Bull, a pretty big departure, but may end up being another testing livery after being burned by that cool black and white one last year



    And the Merc which is a variation on last year but eh, if it ain't broke

    I am positive that blue bit will look better in motion which will make the car stand out in a good way.

    That red bull livery is bad. Not even so bad its good, it's just bad. Last years was an incredible razzle dazzle livery. This is not and I am glad most people agree its just a one off. That has "Place holder livery rushed into production" all over it.

    I like the merc livery. The fade from silver to black with the blue stripe along the side is beautiful combo.

    Updated OP with 2019 teams and drivers info, and the 2019 calendar. 2019 car pics will have to come later when there's better ones out there. Let me know if I got anything wrong!

    force india: good, solid

    reb bull: weird but i can get used to it. i think my only issue here is that without the yellow it's too similar to a torro rosso

    mercedes: classy and cool, but also who cares i never want to see this goddamn car again

    Only part of the Racing Point car I don't like is the silver/gray bit.

    steam_sig.png
  • SnicketysnickSnicketysnick The Greatest Hype Man in WesterosRegistered User regular
    McLaren is out and I really like the sort of pixel shatter/fade on the engine cover



    also noticed something that's also on the Renault at least that I missed due to their paintjob, there's a sort of winglet arrangement just above the side air intakes. I can't really see a similar structure on the Red Bull or the Merc, but there's a suggestion of it on the Racing Point car as well. Interesting

    i dont know if it's deception tactics or what, but the new Alfa has a very unusual front wing in it's shakedown.... it's basically missing 25% of it's wing, a huge gap leading directly to the tire

    someone trying something different in F1??? or they simply forgot the real wing at the shop

    That is definitely unusual.

    That's apparently just a testing livery too, by the way. Kimi at the wheel.

    So, Ferrari reveal tomorrow, Alfa on Monday. Bold prediction... The Ferrari will be very red.

    So, in general, I dig the Toro Rosso the most so far. I like the Haas too, but Renault does it better.

    And here it is:



    I like it, and I particularly like the use of black as the accent colour.
