It's currently 7:03AM GMT, meaning you'll have to wait more than 12 hours.

Depends on your region. It's 19:15 GMT, so for me in India, it'll launch at 19:15 + 5:30 = 24:45. (00:45)

You don't have to worry about the pics, they'll be just a google search away in a few minutes time after the launch. Besides, this forum will be teeming with posts and pics discussing every molecule of the car by tonight.

I think it's on the sky news channel rather than the F1 channel.

I hope Lotus have a good year because I like Raikkonen.

But then I also like Hamilton and Massa, and Schumi's retirement compels me to like Vettel a bit too!

Looking at the picture on the main page of PF1, if thats the new Lotus, it would appear the stepped nose is back. (Honestly, I'm wondering how many teams will employ the cosmetic 'cap' if it adds nothing from an aero standpoint and isn't mandate as then its just one more thing that could become a problem that doesn't help except that people outside of the garage won't comment on how disfigured the nose looks, and I'm not sure that inside the garage anyone cares.)

At any rate, it will be great to see the first launch, it feels like the first sign toward the new season in weeks beyond the Wolf/Merc rumors and confirmation of who WON'T be in a seat which doesn't really provide any answers, just alters the speculation.

Sky have a dedicated F1 channel, why the heck are they showing it on Sky Sports News HD? Bizarre no?

Maybe to catch a wider audience. You know the crowd that sit down after the dinner and flick on the the telly to watch the news. Where as on the F1 channel it will only get the F1 mob. Think of the news channel as the shop window on the high street and the F1 channel the speciality shop down the alley way. This way they might attract a few more people over and of course a bigger audience is better for the sponsors.

I would expect an advert for the F1 channel straight after.

I think thats last years with a new (ugly) livery.

Edit Remember last year they dolled up the '11 car with proper exhausts and a step nose for the early shots.

Does that say Kimi on the airbox? If so that is pretty cool.

Not too bothered about the stepped nose, IMO Lotus was one of the only teams who did it right last year.

Good looking car :)

Could the white on red Kimi on the airbox and Genii on the sidepod be placeholders pending completion of the new name sponsor deal:

Has to be, right? I was under the impression the new rules made the steps illegal... Maybe I was mistaken.

It might well be. But I hope they keep Kimis name there and Romains on the other car, would be just the like the West Mclaren times :D

Get well soon Schumi. Keep fighting as hard as we know you can. Thinking of Corinna, Gina-Maria, Mick and the rest of the Schumacher family.

No, teams can choose to cover the step with a "modesty panel" if they wish but they don't have to.

Yup, to me it looks like a Brazil spec E20 with a new livery. Either that or there aren't much visible changes in E21.

Don't think Lotus have released the pics - someone at Enstone jumping the gun with a mobile phone perhaps?

Are you sure this is the car that will be launched? Who knows, we might have been trolled by Lotus and they could have just come up with the livery to fool us. The real livery will be unleashed later on.

They won't time waste doing that. That is the new livery. Who knows if it is the final car design, probably not because the front end looks identical to the late 2012 car.
