Not in the U.K., it won’t.
The testing, like the races, will be shown on F1TV Pro, which we don’t get in the U.K. because of the Sky deal.

https://www.crash.net/f1/news/912192...preseason-test

If you sign up for F1TV in the U.K., you get the basic package, which is race replays at some point after the race, and that’s about it. So you may as well watch channel 4 replays.

First car launch HAAS



How have they made black and gold look boring?

Oh well let’s hope Renault have gone a different way this year

Looks alright to me, though I've seen it from the front on.

Very JPS.

New cars part 2

From yesterday a new livery from Williams



Quite nice and different from everyone hopefully

Next up, Toro Rosso, same ol’ same ol’ for the paint job but we can be sure it’s a lot closer to it’s bigger brother this year design wise



And from today it’s Renault,



as I feared it’s the same livery as last year so side on we’ll have 2 mainly black cars at least


Big day tomorrow with Racing Point, Mercedes and Red Bull revealed.

Mercedes already broke cover:

You got enough wing elements on there lads?


The new Williams looks awful. Like a cheap knockoff brand of toothpaste.

And seeing I’ve posted the same angled shot of each of the cars I really should do the same for the Mercedes

Red Bull's test livery is hideous. At least I hope its just the test version they do every year.

McLaren time:



Looks nice, some interesting tweaks let’s hope it’s fast.

And the Alfa has broken ground and check out their front wing, which unsurprisingly Autosport is going nuts for.



I’m hoping the livery is a temporary much like Red Bull but are they making a statement of intent with the wing that they are not just a Ferrari B Team?

Ferrari:



They've gone for a similar front wing as the new Alfa.
