Yup. They look a lot better for it too. The cars in just plain colours look bland.

Remember the sponsorless Ferrari with the black nose they ran at the Italian GP after 9/11?

That was awful (I know it was done to show their respect, but, I'm talking aesthetically).

God, that Renault looks like the the Benetton liver from the early 90s, except the colors are different. In other news, I think Ferrari is gonna do brillinat this year, theyve got the great drivers now, and I dont think mcClaren is gonna be able to pull together a good enough car for Alonso to win substnatial amounts.

The new Renault looks just like the interim one except the blank blue spots have been filled in with ING logos.

Also the new Honda and Red Bull have had their first runs. The new Honda is due to be launched on tomorrow (or today depending on where you are) and
the RBR on Friday.

The Newey car will spring some surprises, grab the odd podium, but won't trouble McLaren, Renault and Ferrari. To be honest, I think 2007 is going to be one of the most unpredictable seasons in recent history. You've got big changes at all the big teams, which may or may not work. I think you could see some odd race winners in 2007 and more of them than recent years. Or I could be wrong and one team will dominate leaving the rest to ponder where it all went wrong.

Nice Renault livery but as many have suggested, I too will miss the old blue and yellow livery. That old livery has become one of the major parts of Formula 1 in recent years, like the ferrari red.

Can't wait to see the new Honda livery now (hoping for green and white  pray  ).

I hate to admit this, but we're in for another Ferrari dominant season  Sad ....

..........unless McLaren have pulled their act together and Heike and Fisi can perform well.

I don't know. Their technical group has been shaken up and if Kimi is as bad at developing the car as they claim he is, they might be in for a diffuclt season.

It seems Hamilton has wrote off a new Mclaren already. Great start Lewis!

Quoting ITVF1:

McLaren rookie Lewis Hamilton escaped unharmed after badly damaging one of the team's new MP4-22 cars in a crash in testing at Valencia on Thursday.

The 22-year-old, on just his second day in the team’s 2007 challenger, will not now complete his testing programme at the Spanish circuit as the car will not be able to be fixed in time for Friday.

"Lewis is uninjured but the MP4-22 he was driving is badly damaged and will not be repairable in Valencia for Lewis to continue his test programme tomorrow," a McLaren spokesperson said.

"The cause of the accident is being investigated."

Hamilton's accident came after 33 laps on the second day of McLaren's running at the Ricardo Tormo circuit, which is the team's first serious test with the MP4-22.

The Briton, preparing for his F1 debut in Melbourne in March, had set a best lap of 1m12.596s, with team-mate Fernando Alonso 0.9s quicker at 1m11.698s after 76 laps.

The double world champion will now complete the team’s programme in the other MP4-22 on Friday.

It's probably the angles. The McLaren has different shaped sidepods and has sprouted various aerodynamic bits. The front suspension on the Ferrari looks different and the side air intakes appear to have more defined curves. The 2006 car pictured is probably the same spec as what raced in the last round at interlagos.

Nearly all the front running teams will introduced new aero packages prior to racing in Melbourne. So what you see testing now will be different in 7 weeks time

He tested a Champ Car for the second time earlier this week, with Paul Stoddart’s new Minardi Team USA.

More focus on the Renault mirrors...


More on the RB3

Quote:
"Undoubtedly some aspects of RB3 are ‘McLarenesque’ and are, to some extent, a development of the work I was doing when I was there," said Newey.



Quote:
The car features a triple-deck front wing and very tight packaging, suggesting that the Renault engine Red Bull is powered by this year has better heat rejection characteristics than the Ferrari it used last season, the miscalculation of which caused the team persistent overheating problems.

Former F1 drivers do well at the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona (plus some other names you might recognize):

1st Scott Pruett/Salvador Duran/Juan Pablo Montoya
2nd Patrick Carpentier/Milka Duno/Ryan Dalziel/Darren Manning
3rd Max Angelelli/Wayne Taylor/Jan Magnussen/Jeff Gordon
4th Hurley Haywood/Joao Barbosa/JC France/Roberto Moreno

The top 2 were on the same lap at the finish, 1m15 apart

Montoya put in a solid double-stint before Pruett got in to finish with 1:45 left

Magnussen's car ran the last 12hrs+ with no clutch, and had to be push-started after every pit stop. They were in 2nd with :40 left but lost 2½ laps due to a long pit stop to bleed the brakes.

Webber questions Schu role
Monday, 29, January, 2007, 12:41

Mark Webber has questioned why Ferrari is still inviting Michael Schumacher to attend test sessions this year – believing that his presence could have a negative impact on new recruit Kimi Raikkonen.

The seven-time world champion retired from racing at the end of last season, to be replaced by the Finn, but still attended Ferrari’s 2007 car launch and was in the garage during the first test of the F2007 at Fiorano.

And although Schumacher's official new role with the Italian squad has yet to be spelled out, Ferrari CEO Jean Todt said recently that the German would continue helping both the team and its drivers in an advisory capacity where necessary.

However RBR star Webber reckons this set-up is only likely to put more pressure on Raikkonen as he tries to replace Formula 1’s most successful ever driver.

“It’s odd having him [Schumacher] at the tests, I think – really odd,” he said.

“It’s like having your ex-boyfriend or ex-girlfriend there. Kimi must go ‘what the f***?’

“It must feel so strange to have the teacher’s pet standing above you while you are trying to get on with your own new programme.

“Suffocation or what?”

The Australian also reckons that Schumacher's departure will give more drivers the chance of scoring victories in 2007.

“Clearly Michael averaged a lot of wins every year, so that’s gone," he said.

“Wins are going to be spread out across a few more people and I think we will see many different people on the podium.”

Williams says hell no to customer cars

Quote:
The rules in force for 2007 do not allow chassis to be shared or sold, and Williams is adamant that teams must continue to build their own cars from scratch in order to compete legally.

But FIA president Max Mosley has seemingly offered STR and Super Aguri a way round the ban on customer cars by arguing that third-party contractors could supply more than one team.
