Just one thing, the first day of testing is the 27th. The launch is being held 3 days before it.

I wonder if there will be any completely new liveries for 2017 or will they all stay pretty much the same. McLaren aren't expecting to get a new title sponsor until 2018 so I guess they will be pretty much the same as this year. I hope that Haas might change their livery as I thought that red white and grey was a bit boring, I'd have preferred more of a red white and blue like the US flag.

My thoughts on liveries for 2017:

I'm guessing Merc will stay the same. Boring.
I'm hoping RBR will keep their matte livery. I liked it.
Ferrari will be red. But should drop the white tops.
Williams will stick with the Martini stripes. But it could be SO much better.
FI needs a change. I liked the 2009-2012 liveries.
McLaren need to drop the black. Maybe replace it with white so it goes better against those red markings?
Toro Rosso hasn't changed since 2006.
Sauber hasn't had a nice livery since 1995.
Haas needs to head towards the US colours route. Their livery was one of the worst this season.
Renault should keep the yellow. I remember us all being so disappointed at the black livery launch last season then breathing a sigh of relief when the yellow appeared.
Manor should keep their colours.

Looks like the launches will be later this year, probably to keep the cars under wraps that little bit longer.

I say it every year but it's still true... Toro Rosso need to change their base blue to the sky blue of the sugar free red bull. More product exposure and it would look incredible!

Haas's colours are those of Haas Automation. Gene won't be changing them any time soon.

McLaren seem like the only team that might make a radical change because they need to attract sponsorship, and also seem intent to purge all of Ron Dennis' influence, so might switch up the black for something more appealing.

Sauber might change too thinking about it. Their livery was largely dictated by Banco Brazil, and with that gone with Nasr, they might change it.

I just feel because the cars will look so different, teams will broaden their creativity with the liveries as well.

Sadly, some teams such as Mercedes, Red Bull & Ferrari will stick to this year's livery, atleast most of it.

I hope Force India & Haas come with new liveries. I loved the 2014 Force India livery. Quite fierce.

I'm just looking forward to the inevitable fan-designed liveries that knock the official ones out of the park!

There's a thread about Helmet based liveries!

The Ferrari white head surround failed to win, the last time they had it (1993) that car failed to win. Between 1993-2016, the only other season they didn't win a race was 2014 and that didn't have the white - I think the white top will go...

Considering that was Nasr's best chance of a drive he has probably cost himself a 2017 seat scoring points for Sauber at Brazil.

Gutted for Manor though, I really wanted them to do a Force India and work their way up.

A picture of Esteban Ocon that was posted on Force India's Twitter page with the heading 'New colour, new season, new challenge ! Looking forward...

Either it means just a standard change from Manor overalls to Force India ones or it implies that Force India are also changing their livery! Only time will tell but looking at the picture of Ocon, he's wearing the colours of last season.

I hope they don't. I find theirs easily the finest livery in F1.

Probably they won't. They hardly make any changes to their livery.

Really? I've personally never been much of a fan of the Toro Rosso paint job, it's just too cartoony for my liking. But a metallic sky blue would look awesome in my mind. Definitely stand out.

I'm almost entirely sure he just meant a new team, but if they're changing their livery I hope they go back to the 2014 one. For me, that was easily the most striking and dramatic color scheme they've had yet.

Santander cheekily revealed the name of the Ferrari car for the '17 season - SF17-JB.

The JB is for Jules Bianchi.

However, that tweet has been deleted.

I drink the sugar free one when I drive long distance, which in Australia is more often than I would like. It's much better imo - regular you get a hit of caffeine and a sugar rush... But then the sugar crashes so although caffeine has a 6 hour half life you actually feel more tired after the crash. Sugar free lacks the sudden spike so it's just a general mellower slow release stimulant. Much better over a 14 hour drive.

The nose looks similar to their 2016 Nose, only a bit more squarish. Hope the rest of the car is bit different as the new regs allow for fresh new ideas.
