Tempted to go to my local bookies and stick a fiver on Lewis winning every race this season. I know it won't happen, but the way he ended last season, who knows?

Also, the Red Bull line up looks promising. Two future champions there.

I was thinking the other day that I might put some money on Williams hitting the number 2 spot this year.

In other news, this looks a bit better than last year's!

The Williams is here:

and the McLaren is due to be unveiled any time. Rumours are that it'll be in black for now, with the branding being released after the Jerez test.

They missed a trick with the nose on their last car, surely it was a shoe-in for Ann Summers sponsorship.

Other than the lack of hideous noses, nothing much looks different this year.

No, the differences seem very subtle on the outside.

So, Red Bull have gone for the camo livery during testing, then this morning have sent Kvyat out with no front wing. I can't believe they could get enough front downforce without it, but what if the camo is hiding something special?

Image

*edit* Ah, it seems that they only have one front wing in Jerez and Kvyat damaged it when he went off track on his first lap...

Looks like WWII dazzle pattern camo!

i.e. Horrible.

Just posted this elsewhere.

Senna doing a quali lap round Monaco circa 1990.

Enjoy a minute and a bit of a fucking genius at work!
