Seasons Greetings from Formula1.com 23 Dec 2003
2003 has been a great year for Formula One racing and as it draws to a close Formula1.com would like to thank you for your support over the past season and wish all our users the very best for the festive period.
Needless to say the first month of 2004 already looks set to be a busy one as the teams gear up for the opening round of the new season in Australia. Five of them have already confirmed plans to launch their new cars in January.
Williams kick off proceedings on Monday, January 5. Their FW26, the car they hope will finally end Ferrari's stranglehold on the constructors' championship, will be revealed in Valencia, Spain. Then, just a week later on Monday, January 12, Sauber will unveil their C26 in Salzburg, Austria.
The weekend of January 17/18 sees back-to-back launches, with Toyota pulling the wraps off the TF104 on Saturday at their Cologne base in Germany, and Jaguar revealing their new R5 in Barcelona, Spain, the following day.
Renault will complete the currently scheduled launches on Thursday January 29, when press and fans will get their first official view of the R24 in Palermo, on the Italian island of Sicily.
There will also be plenty of track action as testing resumes after the mid-winter break, with January multi-team sessions already planned at Barcelona and Valencia.
We will, of course, be keeping you informed of all the developments from the world of Formula One racing, so stay in touch with Formula1.com in the New Year for the latest updates. And in the meantime, have a great holiday season!
