Pre-Season testing starts tomorrow.

Here are images of the released cars so far

Image

Red Bull have included purple in their colour scheme.

The Ferrari looks lovely in my opinion.

Be interesting to see what testing brings though they cars will be hugely different come Australia.

If Ferrari can get the car right this season and Alonso can maintain the from he showed last season and Massa can start this season like he finished last then i reckon red bull wont have such an easy time of it

One if the Red Bull Renault the Other is the Scuderia Toro Rosso.

Red Bull owns both teams.

Sebastian Vettel is obviously the key driver to have come through the Red Bull Junior Drivers program. Securing STR's first pole and win before moving on from the 'sister' team and winning 3 consecutive World Championships with RBR.

Glad to see that most have done away with the stepped noses from last years' cars, they looked pretty hideous.

The livery on the new Red Bull is stunning, hopefully they'll be reeled in on the performance front though.

Apparently the Mercedes is "not too bad" based on Lewis' first run in it, interesting to see if he can get the same performance from that as he did from the McLaren, would be surprised if he can. Also interested to see what McLaren have done now they have one lead driver to develop for instead of trying to juggle the needs / desires of two world champions. I think they'll have learnt the hard way that having two top tier drivers in the team is a mistake, although for their ambitions of winning titles it's probably the wrong one of the drivers that has gone.

I really hope that Alonso wins the title this season, he definitely deserves it after the last few seasons where he's kept the title race close despite the failings of the car. Not always been a fan of Alonso's attitude, but he seems to have matured, and as a driver he's second to none in that field IMO.

So it's finally back.

Quali tomorrow at 6am. (Actual start time not program start time)

Vettel looks in a great position.

Mercedes look like the second paced car.

McLaren look like they're starting the season behind Red Bull, Merc, Ferrari, Lotus and Force India. In FP2 Button was 0.5 seconds a sector slower than Vettel.

What a bunch of f*cking bullsh*t. I stayed up all night for that!

Qualifying will happen at 12am Sunday morning. Race starts at 6am.

Called off because it was to wet.

Superb drive from Kimi to win yesterday, that Lotus looks to be quick and go easy on tyres... could be a real contender if they can keep that sort of form up. Loved the fact that late on as Alonso was closing in on him Kimi just put in one lightning quick lap to show in no uncertain terms that it was his race. :D

Bit of a surprise to see McLaren struggling so much for pace, Button taking 9th and Perez out of the points. They've got a lot of work to do, there were even rumours going around that they might abandon this year's car and bring back last year's... can't see that'll happen, but the fact it's even been mentioned is a worry for them.

Force India looked good, felt sorry for Sutil that the super-soft tyres went off so quickly. Shame they couldn't have held off til a couple of laps from the end before bringing him in as he'd put in a great performance up to that point. Considering he'd been away for a while he looked to get straight back to form.

Think the top 3 all drove really good races, Kimi was immense, Alonso was his usual superb self... the pass on Lewis that he abandoned on seeing Lewis lock up was a testament to what a good driver he is, and Vettel didn't put a foot wrong and made a couple of good passes.

The Mercedes looks good early on, but faded quite badly. Rosberg retiring and Lewis dropping back into the pack a bit, but it's something for them to work on.

Also thought Massa drove really well, maybe we're going to see him back to his best this season.

Fair play Reedo. I think Vettel was in genuine shock and the impact of what he done didn't hit him until speaking to Newey. He looked like he wanted to break in to tears on the podium. I wonder what will go on behind the scenes now.

Horner said that they didn't ask him to give the position back because what was the point he made his move and has made it clear he looks after his own interest and not the teams. That's harsh words coming from the TP. He had the entire backing of the Red Bull team before today and looks like he's caused big fractions with in.

All 3 places on the podium today were incorrect in reality. Should have been a Webber Vettel Rosberg podium and instead we get a Vettel Webber Hamilton podium.

Hamilton said: "I don't feel great at the moment. Nico deserves to be in the position I am in. He drove a much smarter race. I said to Ross at the end that I wanted to let him past. He said: 'Absolutely not. When I tell you what I want to do, you have to stick by it.' So I am glad I stuck by it and that I didn't get in trouble with Ross. Hats off to Nico – he did a fantastic job and he was driver of the day for me."

I wouldn't have bothered much if it was anyone else, but I really like Webber, comes across as a great guy all the time.

Vettel is a spoilt little brat. Webber drove a great race, and Vettel pulled the guys pants down when Webber was running with the engine turned down which meant it wasn't even a fair fight. It's disgusting behaviour, can't even see Schumacher having done that in his prime.

Felt sorry for Rosberg, and that situation was a bit different in that Hamilton couldn't go any quicker, whereas we don't know if Webber could have done. Thing is it sends a pretty clear message to Nico that he's second best.

Fair play to Ross Brawn though, his driver actually listen to and respect what he says. When Horner told Vettel to hold station he got ignored. Not what you want to see from the team principal.

Doubt anything will happen to Vettel though, would think that Webber will almost certainly leave at the end of the season now.

Shocking from Vettel really his comments about getting Webber out of his way are p*ss poor and 2 races into a season it's just not on.

Was a very eventful race highlight obviously being Hamilton driving through the McLaren pit lane.

I'm a big Webber fan as well seems like a top bloke but Vettel has that win at all costs thing that champions have and I imagine Webber will only be the first team mate he falls out with over his career.
