Ferrari have become the first team to reveal the launch date for their 2018 challenger.

I wonder if Toro Rosso would be the last team to reveal or postpone their car's launch!

Could you put the first test date in the OP as well, I know it's a little o/t but it was the first thing I asked myself when reading it and I think it might be useful to highlight when testing gets started and for the inevitable teams that launch on that morning you'll be able to just put- '1st Test' and we'll be able to see the date in the same post if you see what I mean.

Reading this just reminds me once again what a ludicrously small amount of testing the teams get these days...

Ouch! :D I'm still holding out hope that Honda comes good (I doubt McLaren share my hopes).

Problem is Alonso will be using a Renault engine so we all know how this will go. Honda will produce a world beater and be fighting for podiums with Toro Rosso while Renault will go backwards.

According to their website it's open to the public 9th March 2018 but please double check first...


Winter testing will be interesting this year that's for sure.

Dont forget the huge amount of simulator work they do these days. I don't know if they can test the precise effect of eg a new wing component or suspension part on their sims, but if not they will be able to do so soon I bet..

Or at least the rich teams that is..
