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:

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.

Looks like a horrible photoshop.

The letters extend above the wing!

McLaren have confirmed its a bad photoshop, certainly not from them. Apparently it was doing the rounds on reddit this morning
