I thought Pirelli had announced that the colours were universal accross the board. 1 colour for the hard compound at the race weekend. 1 for the medium and 1 for the soft compound
So Australias hard medium and soft compounds are the same colour as Bahrains colours. Even though the compounds are 1 step up on compound at each of the races.

Karun Chandhok moves from C4 to Sky Sports for 2019:
https://www.crash.net/f1/news/911652/1/chandhok-rejoins-sky-sports-f1-team-2019

He surely gives important inputs in his commentary & always talks sense.

At this rate they will have more pundits than commentators.

If it means less of Johnny Herbert then that's fine by me.

Most likely I feel Chandhok will play more of a part time "guest" role, like Rosberg did this year. I hope not though because I like Chandhok as a pundit, he's very knowledgeable and I'd like to see him on there regularly.

McLaren have given a tease of their car. With the image (or lack of it) it hints to an Orange livery again.

This image was posted on McLaren's FB page but was removed. Here's he leaked image which shows McLaren keeping the same livery but one of the 2 sponsors which McLaren has recently joined hands with is visible on the rear wing.

As per the link below, Force India's livery will not be completely Pink. With SportPesa becoming the title sponsor (not officially confirmed though), the livery will adorn Blue & Pink colours. An inside source for the team has confirmed the livery colours.
https://sponsorship.sportbusiness.com/news/exclusive-sportpesa-deal-done-as-racing-point-switches-to-pink-and-blue/?fbclid=IwAR1pGwMIqjRH2hljNewBax89KAGPsjAfy3hXj7LenN4I8TrqeIJySC68TjY

This was a livery design shared on the net. Am attaching here to get a reference for the mix of Blue & Pink livery.

Renault did a small tease of how Ricciardo's number on the car would look. I wonder if Renault will have Golden colden incorporated in their livery this year?

Mercedes are teasing a brand new livery for their 2019 car:

https://www.motorsport.com/f1/news/merc ... h/4333217/

In my opinion it would be great if it was true but I'd be surprised, they will probably do what Red Bull have done in the past and have a great looking livery for testing only and then revert back to basically the same livery as they have had for a long time.

Agree. The silver they've had over the last 5 years will be synonymous with their success, surely they won't want to change that from a branding point of view.

Hard to judge without seeing the full car but not sure I like what they've teased. I think the Red Bull one in the article looked weird too.

The Mercedes thing looks very much like a test livery from the tease IMO. Would be nice to see them mix it up a bit for the whole season though.

We atleast have 1 team will a complete livery change (Haas). Williams should have a major change due to Martini not being there. There have also been reports Racing Point will be a mix of Pink & Blue in equal proportions.

Also wondering what Alfa has in store now they've ditched Sauber completely.

Reading that report it appears they have signed a title sponsor to replace Martini, so in that respect they are doing better than McLaren :D

Williams just posted a Pre-Promo on their Twitter feed and in one frame in particular you can see how different the car's general shape is, particularly the front end.
They've ditched their smooth sweeping line down from the cockpit to the nose for a more abrupt slant the likes of Ferrari and Sauber.

I've taken a screen capture for you guys to see.

That depends on how much money it is. Martini didn't give them anything like title sponsor money for all the exposure they got.

From pretty good source I know that this is an old car (not sure which one exactly, might be even mix a front wing and chasis from different years) and on 11th they will only show new livery but it will be most probably on 2018 car. The new one will be revealed in Catalunya

The Rich Energy guy has apparently gone to Trump University to learn his marketing speak:

Quote:
“We’re expanding very quickly, we’re taking a huge amount of business from them. Some of the biggest drinks distributors in Europe are de-listing Red Bull now."

“And I think our results will start to speak for themselves. Formula 1’s a wonderful platform for us. We’re with the best team, the best-run team, in my opinion, and equally importantly lovely people, so we’re delighted to work with Haas, we want to do it for a very long-term basis.”

“We just feel we’ve got a better product and a better brand and we feel that there’s a little bit of apathy and, dare I say, hubris in the marketplace.”
