Anyone know what time the RB13 launch is?


No time yet specified for Red Bull & Haas launches.

Toro Rosso will reveal their car after a 90 minute delay at 18:00 CET.

I was hoping Haas would have a decent livery this year, that grey is not appealing at all!

Red Bull & Toro Rosso will carry the usual livery too. Fairly dissapointing year once again on the livery front.


They are expected & probably will go for a newer shade of Blue.


Well I certainly hope so but rumours are just rumours for now.

If they do go for the lighter shade for their sugar free drink it will most likely blow all the other liveries out of the water.

Fingers crossed.

Red Bull launches at 12:13 UK time (because it's the RB13 and that makes it 13:13 in Barcelona)

Haas launches at 2pm UK time.

Toro Rosso launches at 5pm UK time (6pm CET).

All these helmet designs are reminding me of these irrelevant, senseless, vain practices:

Jup, the Ferrari definitely looks like a fatty compared to the Mercedes.

More streamlined though, weird bulb-y two-pieced side/rear by Merc.

Now that all cars have been revealed I must say that I am really disappointed with the way the cars look. I was hoping that with the new regulations the hideous noses would disappear. Not only did they not disappear but somehow fins came into picture and the cars look even more horrible. So from pleasant looking and sounding cars from 2011 and before we are here.

I was hoping that the F1 cars this year would look a bit like the Indy Cars which really look beautiful in comparison.

I am glad that McLaren ditched the full Black color scheme.
The HAAS looks like a car in transition from the silver McLaren to the full black McLaren of last year.

Livery wise I do like Sauber because it reminds me of the classic Williams. I like Renault, Toro Rosso more and McLaren.

The worse looking car has to be the Ferrari. Not even sticking Kimi in the car can endear it to me. Sad Kimi's (possibly) final year in F1 will be in this monstrosity.

I have to say I'm not at all taken by Hamilton's new helmet, much prefer his white one from before.

Just a very ugly overall colour scheme IMO. It'll be interesting to see how it looks in the car though, might look better surrounded by silver.

If you followed his instagram there were a lot of quality designs that were better/nicer than this one, but this one is solid. Not my favorite, but not bad

Completely sold on the new helmet compared to last year now. Not a fan of the red/yellow mix in the studio shots and I hate the blue and green stripes but in the car it looks awesome.

Looks like it's changed quite a bit though, much more yellow for instance on the top which was white in the studio image. Anyway looks cool in the car, hope he's keeping it like that.

As per specialist publication Auto Bild, Force India is in talks with BWT, an Austrian water technology company.

"A condition of BWT's sponsor agreements is always that the cars are painted pink," Auto Bild said.

Hope it happens, it would be nice to have another unique and bright colour on the grid.

The only predominantly silver car on the grid should be the works Mercedes.

Although the talks are on, how dependent / accurate are Auto Bild to be relied on?

Honestly not a clue, I tried briefly to look on their website for previous stories but I can't figure out how to see only F1 content so I gave up, I can't see a source in the article above though.

Would be great if it happens. FI had the only meh livery for me and this would brighten it up nicely.

Hulk doing a Hamilton.

He's decided on 2 colours for his helmet & has requested for fans to help make a decision.

I tweeted to him - Red.

It would be weird if his helmet wasn't green, really. I don't have a Twitter account though, so the decision will be made without my input.

Would we see any change in the liveries of the teams as some, if not all, could be sporting testing liveries to some extent.

I hope Force India make good use of this time & add some colour!

I love it! I voted for the green, but that's a mighty fine-looking lid either way! :thumbup:
