RACE DEBRIEF

    Launch season for the 2019 Formula 1 season is nearly upon us, with Haas preparing to become the first team to show off their new look this week. The others will then follow suit in quick succession, and to make sure you don’t miss an unveiling, here’s the key launch dates to put in your calendar…

    Haas will unveil their new livery, which is expected to be a fresh look courtesy of a new title sponsorship with Rich Energy, on February 7, four days ahead of Toro Rosso’s car reveal, with Renault hosting their launch event a day later.

    February 13 is going to be a busy day, with Red Bull launching their RB15 challenger, Mercedes shaking down their W10 and Racing Point revealing their new identity and livery.

    McLaren have opted for a Valentine’s Day reveal, a day ahead of Ferrari and three days before pre-season testing begins on February 18.

    Alfa Romeo, formerly known as Sauber, will reveal their car on the morning of the first test in Barcelona, meaning Williams are the only team yet to announce their plans.
